Inside the Bills:
Bills head coach Chan Gailey was critical of his decision to put Andy Levitre at center to play his third position in five weeks on Buffalo’s offensive line Sunday. In the wake of accepting blame Gailey also indicated that Kraig Urbik is likely to man center next Sunday against the Jets.
“That’s probably the direction we’re going to have to go from here on out,” said Gailey when asked if Urbik would step into the pivot.
Urbik finished the Cowboys game at center two weeks ago. More importantly it will allow Andy Levitre to return to his more natural position of guard where he can be at his best.

The Bills face another physical defensive front this week in the Dolphins. The Jets came into Buffalo a few weeks ago and by Chan Gailey’s own assessment post-game “out-physicaled” the Bills. So how do the Bills regroup and match the physical play of Miami Sunday?
“You have to match that with your heart,” said Gailey. ”You can’t change your brawn in midseason so you...

Head coach Chan Gailey was asked Monday if McKelvin will remain at the back end of the depth chart.
“That remains to be seen,” said Gailey. ”Obviously with the injury...
