Bills vs. Chargers Practice Report: Jairus Byrd Sits

Though the Buffalo Bills got one safety back in the form of veteran George Wilson on Wednesday, the team was also down a starting safety in Jairus Byrd.

Byrd did not miss any action in Sunday's loss to Tennessee, and he was barely on the injury radar early in the week, despite acknowledgment from Chan Gailey that he was dinged. The expectation is that, as with several veteran players before him, Byrd will return to the practice field on Thursday or Friday and be prepared to play on Sunday in San Diego.

Also missing practice Wednesday were cornerback Aaron Williams and tight end Scott Chandler. As we discussed yesterday, Williams is not expected to be ready to play this weekend, but could return soon thereafter. Chandler, meanwhile, also appears to have a chance to play on Sunday after a tweaked knee slowed him down considerably in the loss to Tennessee.
