The Buffalo Bills may be 2-0 and coming off of back-to-back huge victories, but they're also beat up. Two key offensive contributors, in particular, will be missing significant stretches of the season, according to head coach Chan Gailey.

Roscoe Parrish, who injured his left ankle and was carted off of the sideline during yesterday's win over Oakland, has not yet had a timetable set for his ailment. Gailey called the injury "more long term than short term," however, and also wouldn't rule out a return trip to IR - but still noted that he didn't think the ankle was broken. David Nelson will become the team's primary slot receiver in Parrish's absence.

Meanwhile, top receiver Stevie Johnson's groin injury is not a huge concern for Gailey, but they also plan to give Johnson a lighter practice workload to keep him fresh for Sundays. With the Bills thinning out at receiver quickly, expect the team to make a move at that position this week.

At right guard, Kraig Urbik is expected to miss between two and four weeks with an injury of his own. He'll be replaced in the lineup by Chad Rinehart, who saw most of the right guard reps in Week 2 after Urbik was injured in the first half.
