Found September 12, 2012 on Pro Football Zone:

Buffalo Bills head coach Chan Gailey says that he expects defensive tackle Marcel Dareus to play this week even though Dareus just found out on Tuesday that his brother was murdered back in Alabama.

“I talked to him this morning,” said Gailey, per WGR 550. “I think he’ll be back for Sunday’s game, whether it’s tonight, tomorrow or the next day I don’t know. But I think he’ll be here for this week. He wants to be back.”

I believe the last thing Dareus should be worrying about is playing this week.  We’ll continue to pray for him and his family at this time.
