PITTSFORD -- Bills rookie receiver Marcus Easley is expected to have knee surgery soon, according to head coach Chan Gailey. Easley was not at practice Monday. He has been sidelined for the past two weeks.
Gailey couldn't give an exact time of Easley's surgery, but did say it was going to happen "sometime soon.''
Gailey didn't have a timetable on how long Easley's recovery would be.
"I think it depends on what [the doctors] find when they get in there,'' Gailey said.
Easley, the Bills' fourth-round draft pick, was one of the early surprises in the spring practices and might have worked his way up the depth this summer if not for the knee injury. Gailey has not specifically said what kind of damage Easley sustained to the knee, but it's obviously significant enough that surgery is required.
It would be a shame if the injury forces him to go on the season-ending injured reserve list, but that is a possibility.
