Edwards, Torbor injured against Steelers

Bills coach Chan Gailey said defensive end Dwan Edwards will be out "a while" with a hamstring injury suffered Sunday against Pittsburgh.

"He's not doing well," Gailey said. "It's going to be a while. And don't ask me what the 'a while' is, but it will be longer than shorter."

Gailey didn't rule out injured reserve as an option for Edwards.

"I don't know. It'll be close," he said.

Linebacker Reggie Torbor also suffered a shoulder injury against the Steelers.

"We've got to wait and see how bad that is. They're [team doctors] are doing more tests," Gailey said. 

Gailey also spoke about cornerback Terrence McGee's availability for the rest of the season. McGee had surgery earlier this season to correct a nerve problem behind his knee, and has struggled to stay healthy since. McGee missed Sunday's game.

"Let me answer that more later this week. They're [team doctors] doing a lot more tests. They're looking at it a lot closer. I think I'll have a better idea toward the end of the week where his status is short term and long term," Gailey said.

Guard Eric Wood also will be re-evaluated this week after missing Sunday's game and has a chance to play against the Vikings, Gailey said.

The Bills did get some good injury news Monday, as Gailey expects rookie running back C.J. Spiller and defensive end Spencer Johnson to return this week from their respective hamstring injuries.
