Kelsay out, McGee probable vs. Eagles

Kelsay ---Chris Kelsay has a calf injury that will keep the veteran linebacker out for this week’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles and perhaps longer.

Meanwhile cornerback Terrence McGee (hamstring), who has missed the last three games, is probable for Sunday’s game as is starting right guard Kraig Urbik (knee) who said he will play after missing the last two games.

Linebackers Shawne Merriman (shoulder), Nick Barnett (ankle), center Eric Wood (ankle), running back C.J. Spiller (knee), wide receiver Ruvell Martin (knee) are all probable and expected to play. Left tackle Demetrius Bell (shoulder), linebacker Chris White (hamstring), cornerback Aaron Williams (collarbone) and defensive tackle Torell Troup (lower back) are all out for Sunday.

Kelsay was added to the injury report late Thursday after suffering the injury during the end of practice and was carted off the field. Bills coach Chan Gailey said the injury could keep Kelsay out for a few games. Kelsay started the team’s first four games and has six tackles including four solos.

Gailey said second-year linebacker Danny Batten could draw his first start but there will be a rotation depending on how the Eagles line up. Defensive end Spencer Johnson will also see minutes at outside linebacker.

“The first shot out of the bag I think Batten will start in there but it depends on which personnel group it is,’’ Gailey said. “It depends on who they play.’’
