Found November 05, 2012 on NFL Trade Rumors:
PLAYERS: Chan Gailey
TEAMS: Buffalo Bills
Bills head coach Chan Gailey mentioned that WR Stevie Johnson is dealing with a “bad” contusion in his thigh. “He got hit in the thigh,” said Gailey, via BuffaloBills.com. “He’s got a bad thigh bruise is what happened to him. He played through it and it depends on how much it swells and how much of it drains into the lower part of his leg. All of those kinds of things play into how he’ll be for this week.” Johnson was able to finish Sunday’s game in spite of the injury, but he figures to be questionable throughout the week. We’ll have more probably on Thursday.

Fitzpatrick continues to fade for Bills

Ryan Fitzpatrick's struggles now date back a full calendar year, and there's no sign of him breaking out of his funk. Going into November 2011, the Bills were 5-2 and seemingly on their way to their first playoff berth since the 1999 season, and the ink was barely dry on Fitzpatrick's six-year, $59 million contract, a personnel decision that now seems absurd.

Texans beat Bills in Williams' return to Houston

HOUSTON - In a homecoming bloated with rancor and disdain, Bills defensive end Mario Williams enjoyed his one moment in the spotlight with a second-quarter sack of Texans quarterback Matt Schaub and a taunting finger wag at the Texans' bench.
