It's two steps forward and potentially one step back when it comes to the health of the Buffalo Bills starting offensive line coming out of the bye. The Bills (3-4) are expected to welcome back starting left tackle Cordy Glenn and starting right guard Kraig Urbik for their game at Houston (6-1) on Sunday. Both players missed three games with sprained right ankles. On the downside, Erik Pears' status is uncertain after the starting right tackle missed practice Thursday. Coach Chan Gailey said Pears was visiting a specialist to have a nagging hip-groin injury examined. Gailey said he'll know more regarding Pears on Friday. He didn't rule out the possibility of Pears having surgery to repair the injury for a second time this year.
