The Buffalo Bills defense could get a boost this Sunday when the team plays the Seattle Seahawks in Toronto.
According to ESPN, Nick Barnett is expected to play, despite a sore knee. However, Bills head coach Chan Gailey said Barnett’s knee isn’t healing as expected, but the player should still be on the field.
”We held him out (of practice),” Gailey told buffalobills.com.” It’s just not coming back as fast. I don’t think anybody has any reservations about him playing on Sunday, it’s just not come back as fast.”
It isn’t known when Barnett was injured, but he hasn’t missed a game all season. Barnett currently leads the Bills with 92 tackles and also has two sacks. He also recorded the 1000thtackle of his career in the game against the St. Louis Rams.
Also, defensive end Mark Anderson could play against the Seahawks. It would be Anderson’s first game since injuring his knee on October 7 against the San Francisco 49ers.Tags: Buffalo, Buffalo Bills, Football, NFL
