Bills coach Chan Gailey said after practice today the team expects to be without defensive tackle Kyle Williams for the next couple games.
"It still looks like it's going to be he'll miss a game or two, maybe, and then we'll re-evaluate at that point," Gailey said.
Williams is out with what is being described as a foot injury. Gailey acknolwedged that Williams may not be 100 percent the rest of the year. Williams was walking around in a boot in the locker room Wednesday. It's believed he has a bone spur that's affecting his Achilles tendon.
The Bills' next two games are against Washington in Toronto and at home against the New York Jets. The Bills would be in strong position if they could win those two games. They embark on a three-game road trip after that - at Dallas, at Miami and at the Jets.
On the offensive line, the Bills are planning on starting guard Andy Levitre at left tackle against the Redskins, although tackle Demetrius Bell has a chance to be ready.
Said Gailey: "Has a chance to be back. We're not ruling him out for the Washington game. In our minds we have to be ready to not have him. If we get him it's great."
Asked if the coaches will be inclined to make a lot of tweaks in strategy and tactics during the bye week, Gailey said: "The biggest thing is not to go crazy just because it's an open week and give them too much where they can't go out there and play and execute."
