    ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Defensive tackle John McCargo's out, cornerback Nate Clements is limping, and linebacker Takeo Spikes still isn't sure if he's ready to play.

    ....
    Injuries have been growing out of control for Buffalo (2-3), depleting an already inexperienced unit that has started three rookies in each of its past four games.

    First, it was first-round rookie draft pick, Donte Whitner, starting at strong safety in place of Matt Bowen, who is still out after breaking a bone in his lower right leg two months ago.

    Then, Spikes and veteran free safety Troy Vincent hurt their hamstrings in Buffalo's regular season-opening loss at New England. Spikes hasn't played since, while Vincent was placed on injured reserve forcing the team to start rookie fourth-round pick Ko Simpson.

    Now it's Clements, who's listed as questionable with a sore right quadriceps, and McCargo, the second of Buffalo's two first-round draft picks, who had surgery Monday to repair a broken left foot. Both were hurt in a 40-7 loss at Chicago last weekend.

    ....

    NE is going to kill Buffalo. You heard it here first.

    (Don't you think that is one of the lamest lines ever?)

    thanks for the update. I think they'll beat Buffalo, either way, but it's nice to have the help, I guess. Then again, you'd like as stiff a challenge as possible, just to get a sense of how good we can be.

    What the heck has happened to the Bills since the turn of this century?

    Their draft picks have been busts. Their coaches have made Jerry Jones' puppets look like geniouses. TWICE they sold their franchise to QBs-only to blow up in their faces.

    And this franchise isn't run by Dan Snyder either???:confused:

    No, but Ralph Wilson has got himself quite a tan going.

    if BUF wins @ DET we will have a tough game next week

    but if DET will beat BUF it could be a huge loss for the Bills...
