Buffalo Bills reserve defensive tackle Spencer Johnson has been ruled out from playing at San Francisco this weekend because of an ankle injury.
Coach Chan Gailey made the announcement after Johnson missed his second straight practice Thursday. Gailey said Johnson was hurt but continued playing in a 52-28 loss to New England on Sunday.
Gailey also said offensive linemen Cordy Glenn and Kraig Urbik are expected to miss at least two games after both hurt their right ankles last weekend. Both have already been ruled out from playing against the 49ers.
Rookie cornerback Ron Brooks has been working out for the past week since having a cast removed from his right foot. Brooks broke his foot in the preseason, and is eligible to be activated after Week 8.

In order to avoid writing a thousand cogent words about the travesty that was Week 4 at Ralph Wilson Stadium, I beefed up on my western films. Mainly my favorite: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.

Before making his decision to stay out west for the two-game road trip, Buffalo Bills head coach Chan Gailey consulted with someone who has been there, and done that. That person is this week's opposing head coach, Jim Harbaugh. “San Francisco’s done it the last couple of years,” Gailey said. ”I talked with Harbaugh, and he thought there were some real positives in...
Let’s just get it out of the way. Buffalo got embarrassed last week against the Patriots. I just want to take a few minutes to try and explain why fans are calling for Ryan Fitzpatrick, Chan Gailey, Buddy Nix, and even Mario Williams to get the axe. Fans are getting frustrated in Buffalo, despite the Bills being 2-2 and in the middle of the AFC East race.
I’ll start with the...

I could understand...
