Buffalo Bills right guard Kraig Urbik declared he will return this week from an ankle injury that has sidelined him the past three games.
"I'm playing on Sunday no matter what," Urbik said today at his locker stall.
The Bills' offensive line has been ravaged by injuries and needs all the help it can muster for Sunday's game against the aggressive Houston Texans defense.
"Every game from here on out's important," Urbik said. "Sitting at 3-4, we can't lose too many more games and make the playoffs."
Left tackle Cordy Glenn also has missed the past three games with an ankle injury. His status for Sunday is uncertain.
Urbik's primary backup at right guard, Chad Rinehart, went down with an ankle injury in Week Seven against the Tennessee Titans. A bad hamstring sent third-string lineman Colin Brown, who filled in for Rinehart in Week Five against the San Francisco 49ers, to injured reserve.
Urbik practiced a little before the Titans game but wasn't quite ready to go.
"It felt fine walking, running straightforward, but as soon as I had to cut or something like that it felt pretty bad," Urbik said. "That's why I shut it down last week."
