Jairus Byrd in walking boot, but X-rays negative

By Jay Skurski

Buffalo Bills safety Jairus Byrd made it through the entire game Sunday, but went for X-rays on his foot following the 35-17 win over the Kansas City Chiefs.

Byrd was seen in the locker room today in a walking boot, but coach Chan Gailey said the X-rays were negative.

"It came out a little bit more swollen today than maybe all of us had hoped, but I think he'll be fine for this weekend," Gailey said.

The Bills got through Week Two relatively healthy, with Gailey indicating there were no other major injury concerns. Receiver Ruvell Martin also went for an X-ray on an unspecified injury, but that also came back negative.

Defensive tackle Marcell Dareus, who suffered a shoulder injury against the Chiefs, left last night after the game to return to Alabama and be with his family in wake of the death of his 19-year-old brother eight days ago.

"I think he'll be ok. He understands exactly what he needs to do in the next couple days so he can get back here and be ready to go when he gets back, whenever that is," Gailey said.
