Chris Kelsay expected to miss time with neck injury

By Jay Skurski

Buffalo Bills coach Chan Gailey said today defensive end Chris Kelsay could miss some playing time after aggravating a neck injury in Sunday’s 20-13 loss to the Indianapolis Colts.

"Not good,"the coach characterized the injury, which Kelsay revealed last week was actually a torn neck ligament.

As for the potential to end Kelsay's season, Gailey said: "I don't think so, but you never know about these things. We'll have to wait and see how it comes around."

The news was better for fullback Corey McIntyre, who left Sunday's game with an ankle injury.

"Better than we thought. Could have been a lot worse,"Gailey said. "There's a good chance for this week that he’ll get to practice."

Cornerback Aaron Williams and defensive end Mark Anderson remain out of the lineup because of knee injuries.

"It'll be touch and go. They're going to do a little bit of work during the week. But I'd say it's less of a chance than more of a chance right now for those two,"Gailey said. "It hasn't been a setback but it just hasn't moved forward as fast as we had hoped it would."
