Injury News
Chan Gailey Tuesday Press Conference (6:26) -

The Bills coach updates injuries and playing time for this Friday night.

Wed. return for Schouman? – Inside The Bills
"I think he’s going to try to go tomorrow," said Gailey after practice Tuesday.

Batten update – Inside The Bills
Batten was seen on the practice field Tuesday out of his sling that had been keeping his right shoulder immobilized. "He’s getting better," said Chan Gailey. "We’ll see where that takes us. He won’t be ready this week, probably next week either. He’ll probably be lucky to get the last couple (of practices)."

Starting O-line unlikely Friday – Inside The Bills
"In all likelihood that means that Demetrius Bell and/or Eric Wood will not be dressed for Friday night’s game against the Redskins as the team has been careful in the amount of team work given to each of them in the team segments during practice. Cornell Green is also nursing a right leg injury suffered over the weekend."
