Williams not bad; still waiting on Wilson -
Here's the Bills official release on injuries. Some good, some bad.

Inside The Bills | Chan on C.J.’s carries
"There weren’t many possessions in the second half. We had one long drive and they had two long drives and there weren’t many possessions. Yes, I would’ve liked to (run more), but the times when he did run it we didn’t run it very well. It was minus-1, four and one I think."

Left tackle could see some rotation -
"Gailey did say that Hairston will start this Sunday at San Diego, but he’s going to make an effort to get Bell some playing time somewhere. Whether that happens against the Chargers this weekend or at some later point is unclear. Suffice to say the Bills are looking to nail down as many roles as they can moving forward."

Chan Gailey Monday Update -
"The Bills head coach updates the Aaron Williams and Scott Chandler injury situations, talks about the play of C.J. Spiller, as well as the challenge of keeping the team going while playing for pride."

Inside The Bills | Munchak liked Bills 2nd half ‘D’
"Give Buffalo credit in the second half – we had chances where we had good field position, and they were able to get us off the field. They made some adjustments, made some plays, and put us in some long down situations. That led to the nerve-racking ending of the game. If you can take care of those things in the third and fourth quarter, you can avoid those types of situations."

Inside The Bills | Chan: ’11 team better than ’10
"I think we’re a better football team than we were last year," he said. "I think we are. I think that we have a lot of bright spots, but it’s hard to see them because we’re not winning."

Inside The Bills | Fitz out to improve accuracy
"I missed Brad (Smith) on a couple of the deep throws, being able to hit the plays when they’re there. That’s something that I’ve got to focus on and the way you do that is you practice and you get reps with these guys. You start to feel more comfortable then you start to hit them. That’s something that I definitely need to work on."

Bills' Chandler, Williams May Not Play Sunday - WGR 550
"On the positive side of things, Jairus Byrd likely won't miss any time. He injured his calf against the Titans and took X-rays after the game. But Gailey believes his starting free safety should be fine to play against San Diego."

"Sunday's loss to Tennessee was not the coach's finest moment in Buffalo."

AFC East Power Rankings preview - AFC East Blog - ESPN
"There's not much left to say about the Bills. They lost their fifth game in a row and are 2-7 since the team's 3-0 start. This team is finished in terms of making the playoffs. The best the Bills can hope for is to spoil someone else's season down the stretch. Buffalo has suffered a lot of injuries on offense and the defense can't stop anyone. Expect its ranking to continue to plummet."

"A five-game losing streak heading into San Diego for a late game. The Chargers are 4-7 and this may be the last chance for a win on their schedule. Since there’s a chance the Bills and Chargers could be near each other on the draft board this April, let’s just go ahead and pencil in your Buffalo Bills - with Fitz in nice weather - for a 34-21 win."

Pitoniak: Bills continue downward slide -
"Seems like forever ago, doesn't it, since people Bill-lieved in Fitz-Magic, Steady Freddy, Stevie Wonder and the Senator and thought this cast of likeable overachievers was about to end the franchise's playoff famine?"

McIntyre questions ‘phantom’ holding penalty - Niagara Gazette
"I don’t know what the ref saw, but when you don’t touch that person and you let him spin and you don’t even grab him, you be the judge of that," McIntyre said. "You can call a phantom or whatever, but I know that wasn’t a hold. I feel bad because we made a big play and that was a big penalty when I didn’t even hold a guy."
