O-line turns to Levitre... again -
"It’s unfortunate. Eric put a lot of effort into being a great player and he’s done a great job for us. It’s really unfortunate to see. He’s kind of the anchor of our line," Levitre said. "The plan is for me to move to center this week and maybe for the rest of the season. It kind of depends on the coaching staff. I think at least this week I’ll be at center."

Inside The Bills | Fred said Bills will make playoffs
"Yes we will," said Jackson. "We’re going to do everything we can in our power to make the playoffs. We didn’t set out to have a good run in the beginning the season and improve off last season. Our goal from the start was to get to the playoffs and that’s what we’ve set out to do."

Wood out for the season -
"It was so weird. My toe caught and I knew instantly something was wrong. I’ve never torn an ACL and as soon as they came out there and asked what was wrong I said I thought I had torn my ACL. It’s just unfortunate and terrible luck, but I just have to fight to come back."

WR Johnson, S Wilson both day-to-day -

Chan Gailey Monday Update -
Chan Gailey relays a bunch of bad news.

Inside The Bills | A look at yards per pass play
"Buffalo’s four losses do represent four of the five lowest yards gained per pass play averages this season, but that’s to be expected. You usually don’t move the ball as effectively in losses or you’re lacking big plays. The Bills had just six plays of 15 yards or more in the loss to Dallas with the longest covering just 21 yards."

Inside The Bills | Lindell unlikely to return
"Dave Rayner filled in for Rian Lindell last Sunday and it sounds likely that he’ll do so again this week at Miami."

Inside The Bills | Wood not only torn ACL victim
"The other Bills player was rookie LB Chris White, who sustained the same injury while covering a punt in the third quarter. He had to be carted from the field. Chan Gailey said White will obviously have surgery just like Wood."

Inside The Bills | Bills weighing personnel options
"We’re getting ready to meet and talk about that. We’ve got a couple of different ways we can go," said Gailey. "If we get Demetrius (Bell)back it probably doesn’t (necessitate a move). I think we’ll be okay if we get Demetrius back because we’ve got three guards that we can go play with. I think we’ll be okay if we get Demetrius back. If he comes back this week and it becomes a bigger problem than we thought, which we don’t anticipate, then maybe we have to (make a move)."

Cowboys take big step forward, Bills take big step backward | ProFootballTalk
"Heading into today’s games, the Cowboys and Bills appeared to be fairly similar teams, both fighting for playoff spots in their respective conferences. But once the Cowboys and Bills stepped on the field in Dallas, they couldn’t have looked more different."

Wood Done For Year; Bills' Levitre To Center - WGR 550
"With only one center coming in to the season, the Bills prepared Levitre throughout training camp by giving him some reps at center as an emergency tactic. That alarm will be sounding the rest of the season it seems. Gailey considers himself lucky to have someone like Levitre on his roster."
