After his pre-existing calf injury flared up in practice this week, Buffalo Bills outside linebacker Chris Kelsay has been listed as questionable for Sunday's home date with the New York Jets - and head coach Chan Gailey said that the veteran would be a game-time decision.
This serves as the most surprising - and potentially damaging - news of the week for Buffalo, who will also be without the services of Demetrius Bell (shoulder), Kyle Williams (foot) and Aaron Williams (chest). If Kelsay can't go, the Bills will be left scrambling for bodies at an outside linebacker position already missing Shawne Merriman.
Plans to split left tackle reps between rookie Chris Hairston (ankle) and left guard Andy Levitre (shoulder) may be scrapped, as Hairston was listed as questionable and Gailey cast doubt on his availability. If Hairston can't go or play, Levitre (who is probable) will again flip out to tackle, with Chad Rinehart sliding in at left guard.
Ryan Fitzpatrick (chest) and receiver Donald Jones (ankle) are both probable, and will play. Jones will be a welcome addition for a Bills offense that remains very thin at receiver.
