Found November 02, 2011 on Queen City Sports:

The Buffalo Bills received a bit of good news on the injury front on Wednesday.

Wide receiver Donald Jones, cornerback Aaron Williams, and tackle Chris Hairston returned to the practice field after suffering injuries.  Hairston and Jones are returning from high ankle sprains while Williams is slowly making his way back from a chest injury suffered in the New England game on September 25.

Jones, who suffered his injury nearly a month ago against Philadelphia said his ankle felt good for the most part, and that he didn’t feel any pain until later in the practice.  Jones is expecting to be able to play Sunday when the Bills host the New York Jets.

In Hairston’s case, he has a chance of playing Sunday, but only if everything goes perfect for the remainder of the week.  The rookie left tackle filled in extremely well when the Bills lost normal starter Demetrius Bell in their game against the Bengals, but suffered his ankle injury in just his second career start three weeks ago.

As far as Williams playing, he still has a ways to go.  The rookie corner from Texas hasn’t been cleared for contact, but hopes to be cleared next week and will just take everything one step at time.

Two new players were on the non-participants list today as lineman Andy Levitre sat out with a shoulder injury according to Mark Ludwiczak of CBSSports.com. Running back Johnny White missed due to what is being called an illness.  They join Bell and Kyle Williams on the injured list this week. Williams has already been ruled out for the Jets game, and it’s almost a guarantee that Bell won’t play either unless something miraculous happens between now and Sunday.

Stay tuned to Queen City Sports for updates on the Bills as they prepare for their showdown with the New York Jets on Sunday at Ralph Wilson Stadium.
