Bills matter-of-fact coach Chan Gailey will always let you know right where he stands. It's a good bet that Stevie Johnson has a very clear idea right about now.
Bills head coach Chan Gailey confirmed that Torell Troup will have back surgery, which prompted his move to I-R.
“They determined surgery was needed,” said Gailey. “It’s unfortunate for him and for us.”
Bills coach Chan Gailey was optimistic about the health of cornerback Leodis McKelvin entering the game against the Titans Sunday but was cautious about strong safety George Wilson. McKelvin bruised ribs in the loss at New York Sunday.
“Probably Leodis’ is less significant, so he has a better chance to practice today or tomorrow," said Gailey. "He might not get out...
Tashard Choice may have only practiced twice since being signed by the Bills on Wednesday, but his retention of Buffalo’s offensive system will give him a very good chance of getting on the field today against the Jets.
“He retained a lot,” said head coach Chan Gailey.
Gailey, who coached Choice for his last three seasons of college at Georgia Tech, has a lot of the same terminology...
The lost season for nose tackle Torell Troup sounds like it's about to come to a premature end.
Troup missed Sunday's game in New York after the persistent lower back tightness that has plagued him all year flared up Saturday night. It then got worse on game day.
