Marker Inside slant [5:14 AM]
CBS Sportsline reports: '"When Travis puts weight on his ankle, there's not a lot of stress, but we don't know what's going to happen when he starts running and cutting," Johnson said.

Marker Strategy and personnel [5:13 AM]
CBS Sportsline reports: 'Even if RB Travis Henry can play against the Colts with his broken leg, the Bills are likely to take it easy with him and will have to spread the load around. The Colts rank 24th in run defense and Buffalo can't give up on the ground game if Henry is bottled up. That's where distributing the ball to Joe Burns, Sammy Morris and even FB Sam Gash can come into play.'

Marker Notes, quotes, anecdotes [5:12 AM]

Marker Gregg Williams Is Optimistic About Travis Henry [5:07 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Henry's cracked fibula is questionable. He did not practice Wednesday, but Gregg Williams says he's "optimistic" that Henry will play. Williams says he continues to see progress from number one pick Willis McGahee, but Henry's status will not dictate whether McGahee is active on Sunday against the Colts.'

Marker Hurting Bills [5:06 AM] reports: 'Henry was a spectator during practice Wednesday. If he doesn't play, Joe Burns will start at running back against Indianapolis, and Willis McGahee could suit up for the first time.'

Marker Bills Coach Gregg Williams Previews Indianapolis [8:15 PM] reports: '"There's a lot of good football being played by so many people even on the offensive side of the ball. We have to do a better job in the red zone. We move the ball up and down the field a ton. We've got to do a better job on capitalizing on the plays we have available there. We've got to finish those plays and we've got to come up with some catches. We've got to come up with some blocks and some runs down there to put it in the end zone. We had our opportunities and we're going to have to do a good job with that. A big part of the game plan this weekend is our red zone efficiency once we get down there, capitalizing and putting points on the board. It's a pretty good team coming in here this week. We're excited about the opportunity to play this team."'

Marker Bills Make Roster Moves [8:15 PM] reports: 'The Bills today announced that the team has signed tight end Rod Trafford to the practice squad and also re-signed practice squad receiver wide receiver Jerel Myers.' In addition, the Bills released fullback Phil Crosby from the Reserve-Injured list.

Marker Changes in Tulsa and Buffalo prove Kragthorpe's value [6:50 PM] reports: 'But now with Kragthorpe in Tulsa, the Golden Hurricane are thriving and the Bills are dying.'

Marker Sputtering Bills offense now banged up [6:47 PM]
AP reports: '``I've missed three games but that's not an excuse for other guys not to step up and make plays,'' said Moulds. ``We had opportunities last week to make plays and we just haven't made them.'''

Marker A Quick Look at the Buffalo Bills [3:48 PM] reports: 'The Bills have allowed 20 or fewer points in six of eight games, but the offense has scored more than 13 points just twice in the last eight games.'

Marker ESPN Chat Wrap up [1:54 PM]
ESPN reports: Harvey (Albany, N.Y): Mort, Has the NFL policy regarding interviews of minority candidates for vacant head coaching positions put an end to mid-season firings of head coaches?

Chris Mortensen: (12:43 PM ET) No! The NFL has never had a strong history of firing coaches at midseason because it generally doesn't work. It usually means a coordinator assume the head coach role, and then that specific unit under the coordinator is thrown into chaos. The minority policy has no impact because it does not apply to a mid-season change.

Marker Buffalo's Henry, Moulds questionable for Sunday [1:06 PM]

Marker Sizing up the playoff race [9:15 AM]
CNN/SI reports: Buffalo (4-6): Losers of six of their past eight, the Bills have gone belly up in particularly odorous style. The defense continues to play hard, but on offense it's three games in a row now without a touchdown. All that's really left is to see how Buffalo handles its looming decisions on the head coaching and quarterback fronts.

Playoff projection: Maybe 2004, Bills fans.

Marker Bills Keep Going Backward [5:20 AM]
Hartford Courant reports: 'Offensive coordinator Kevin Gillbride may be part of the problem. The Bills have an excellent running back in Travis Henry (193 carries for 780 yards, 4.0 average), who broke a bone in his leg Sunday. But Gillbride loves to throw and throw deep, and he is trying to use Reed in the role vacated by Price, a role for which Reed seems ill-suited.'

Marker Tasker Flattered By Semi-Finalist Selection [9:22 PM] reports: "I think itís great," Tasker said. "I didnít expect it. Itís certainly flattering, no question about it, and it never ceases to amaze me that people remember when I played the further it gets into the history books. Iím flattered even more that people still remember that I actually played and sometimes played pretty well."

Marker Former Bills Endorse Wilson For Hall of Fame [3:19 PM] reports: '"Unquestionably, he belongs in and Iíve talked to many of the board of selectors who wholeheartedly agree with me. Hereís a man thatís been there since the inception of the AFL. What a sense of loyalty to the game," said Levy, a Hall of Fame member. "Heís been on almost every meaningful committee that thereís been. Heís been such an asset to the league. I was blessed because I couldnít have had a better man to work for during my 12 years in Buffalo."'

Marker Bills might be league's most disappointing [12:51 PM]
Atlanta Journal Constitution reports: 'We have got to make plays when we have our opportunities," Bledsoe said. For 2003, the opportunity has passed.'

Marker Weíre stuck with Gregg as Billsí coach for now [11:38 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'Even the people who buy tickets are laughing at this football team. If thatís not rock bottom, itís close enough.'

Marker Marv Levy: Texans turn back the Bills [11:19 AM] reports: The Bills certainly aren't clicking when they get in the red zone and you have to do that in the NFL if you want to win. They even had an interception that brought them down into the red zone, but they came away with just three points when they could have had the go-ahead touchdown. Offensively, they have gone three consecutive games without an offensive touchdown.

Marker Henry feels better, but status unclear [8:53 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"Am I game ready? Well, I practice every day," McGahee said. "I should be doing a lot more than what I usually do but other than that, it's really not my decision. I think I could play, but you have to be smart about it. If I go out there and I get hurt . . . You just gotta take it easy."'
