Bills Replay Chat scheduled for 3 p.m. today

The News' Allen Wilson has moved his weekly Bills Replay live chat to 3 p.m. today.

Weigh in with your opinions and questions about the Bills' 49-31 victory over the Bengals, right here on the BillBoard blog.

Jackson gets POW

Fred Jackson was named NFL FedEx ground player of the week for Week 10 thanks to a vote of fans on NFL.com. Michael Vick of the Eagles was the air player of the week. Jackson had 133 rushing yards in the win over the Lions. Along with the award, FedEx makes a $2,000 donation to support pedestrian safety in both Buffalo and Philadelphia.

Williams, McIntyre work

Bills defensive tackle Kyle Williams (hamstring) and fullback Corey McIntyre (ankle) both participated in practice Friday in Ralph Wilson Stadium. Those are the Bills' two worrisome injuries heading into Sunday's game at Cincinnati. Tackle Cordaro Howard (shoulder) also particiapted to some degree.

"They're questionable right now but I have faith that they all have got a decent chance," said coach Chan Gailey of Williams, McIntyre and Howard.

With running back C.J. Spiller (hamstring) out, the Bills are thin at running back. They will probably wait until tomorrow to make sure McIntyre is OK. If McIntyre is 100 percent, Gailey said they probably won't have to add a running back to the roster for Sunday. Quinton Ganther will serve as the backup to Fred Jackson. It looks like Spiller will have a good chance to be back for the game against Pittsburgh next week.

Bucs' Williams faces DUI charge

Tampa Bay Buccaneers rookie receiver Mike Williams, the Riverside High and Syracuse product, was arrested early this morning on a "driving under the influence" charge in Florida. According to reports, Williams was speeding and weaving through traffic. His blood-alcohol level was said to be below the state's legal limit, but he failed a field sobriety test, reports say.

ESPN's Adam Schefter has gotten conflicting statements from Bucs officials on whether Williams will start Sunday's game against San Francisco.

Williams leads NFL rookies in receiving yards with 627.

Williams ailing

Bills nose tackle Kyle Williams did not practice Thursday after injuring his hamstring the day before. It is not known how badly he's hurt. Coach Chan Gailey said there is a chance Williams could practice Friday, but Gailey didn't sound overly optimistic about that.

Williams has been the Bills' most effective defensive lineman, so losing him would be a major blow against a Cincinnati Bengals team looking to get their running game going. His potential absence would mean more playing time for rookie nose tackle Torell Troup, but the team's depth would take a hit because they have no other nose tackles behind Troup.

The Bills' D-line is already going to be short-handed with backup end Spencer Johnson out with his own hamstring injury.

Spiller regrets Twitter comment

Rookie running back C.J. Spiller had to apologize for using a derrogatory term towards gays that he posted on his Twitter account Wednesday. The slur was directed at former Clemson teammate and Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Ricky Sapp.

After deleting the orginal tweet, Spiller followed up with the following tweet:

“I wanna apologize for using dat derogatory term to any1 that I may have offended I am truly sorry that was out of my character. God bless.”

Spiller, who also has apologized to Bills coach Chan Gailey and General Manager Buddy Nix, tried to explain his actions on Thursday. 

"Me and Ricky are best friends and we always joke around on there, but I shouldn't have said what I said,'' Spiller said before practice. "If anybody knew how me and Ricky play around on Twitter, pretty much knows that we were just joking and didn't mean any harm. I apologize for the situation."

Most people will likely give Spiller a pass, but in this politically correct world he needs to use better judgment when posting comments on a site as public as Tweeter. Spiller indicated that he has not heard from the NFL, which takes a very dim view of anything that reflects negatively on the league.
