---Bills coach Chan Gailey said Ryan Fitzpatrick has been limited the last two days of practice with a chest bruise but it’s not significant enough to keep the quarterback from playing in Sunday’s game against the New York Jets.
Gailey said he made a mistake by listing Fitzpatrick as a full participant for Wednesday’s practice because he didn’t take all the reps.
“[The chest bruise] something that I’m working through but I’ll be fine,’’ Fitzpatrick said.
Linebacker Chris Kelsay (calf) was the only added to the injury report and was limited in practice on Thursday.
“That calf of his is tweaking on him a little bit so we’re just being conservative with him,’’ Gailey said.
Guard Andy Levitre (shoulder) and tackle Chris Hairston (ankle) were both limited on Thursday although both are expected to play. Levitre worked at left tackle and left guard, while Hairston worked at left tackle. Hairston started at left tackle against Philadelphia and the New York Giants but missed the game last Sunday against Washington.
“Right now we’ve had to rest Andy a little bit so Chris has probably gotten more reps than Andy has in the last two days,’’ Gailey said. “I bet before it’s over with that both will play left tackle in the game.’’
Gailey said wide receiver Donald Jones (ankle), who missed the last two games, practiced fully on Thursday.
“He’s looked a lot better he really has,’’ Gailey said. “He’s done everything in practice. I can tell he’s not 100 percent so we’ll see, he may get to play Sunday.’’
Running back Johnny White (illness) also practiced fully while cornerback Aaron Williams (collarbone), who hasn’t been cleared for contact, was limited. Nose tackle Kyle Williams (foot) and left tackle Demetrius Bell (shoulder) did not practice and are out for Sunday.
New York Jets starting defensive end Mike DeVito was limited in practice due to a sore knee, which kept him out of the Jets’ last game, 11 days ago, against San Diego. Three other Jets starters listed on the injury report linebacker David Harris (ankle), center Nick Mangold (ankle) and linebacker Calvin Pace (groin) all participated fully in practice. Second-string nose tackle Kenrick Ellis (ankle) also practiced fully.
