Vic Carucci's 3 Bills Thoughts: Reasons the sky just might not be falling [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'But here's the good news: The Bills' defensive line can function reasonably well without him. His absence will be felt, no question about it, but there appears to be enough depth to keep things on track for a quarter of the season and longer if necessary.
