Williams, Searcy gear up for Jets

The season-ending injury to cornerback Terrence McGee will thrust rookie Aaron Williams into the starting lineup against the New York Jets. Bills coach Chan Gailey confirmed that Williams, not Leodis McKelvin, will start opposite Drayton Florence.

It looks like strong safety George Wilson will miss another week due to his shoulder injury. Da'Norris Searcy would start in place of Wilson for a second straight week. Rookie cornerback Justin Rogers moved ahead of McKelvin at the nickel corner spot in Miami after McGee was injured. He's still working ahead of McKelvin.

“They’re doing better," coach Chan Gailey said of the rookie DBs. "Aaron and Da’Norris have played a lot more than Justin has, but both of those guys have played well. Da’Norris played well and Aaron for getting back full time for the first time in a while did a good job. They’ve got a lot to learn, don’t get me wrong, but for where they are they’re learning and getting better and competing hard. They just need experience.”
