Bills secondary getting healthier in time for Brees

Per, Buffalo Bills cornerback Drayton Florence - who missed the Bills' final three pre-season games, as well as the first two games of the regular season - will be available for his team's Week 3 matchup with the New Orleans Saints.

Starting cornerback Terrence McGee is listed as questionable for a second consecutive week; he was limited in practice last week but played against Tampa Bay, and the same is expected of Buffalo's top corner this week.  Also expected to play is fellow starter Leodis McKelvin, who practiced fully on Friday for the first time since injuring his ankle during the Bills' win over Tampa.  McKelvin is listed as probable.

C Geoff Hangartner practiced fully for a second straight day and is listed as probable.  Also probable is receiver/punt returner Roscoe Parrish (quad).  Fellow receiver Josh Reed is questionable after an ankle injury limited his participation in practice both today and yesterday.

The news is not so good for DT John McCargo, who is doubtful with a calf injury.  Also doubtful is rookie TE Shawn Nelson, who is nursing a sprained shoulder; if he can't go, Buffalo will play Week 3 with just two active tight ends, Derek Fine and Jonathan Stupar.  The Bills' official injury report, however, shows both McCargo and Nelson as probable - which obviously directly contradicts what Chris Brown is reporting.
