ORCHARD PARK, N. Justin Smith Red Jersey .Y. —Buffalo Bills
defensive end Chris Kelsay is set to return after missing two games with a
partially torn ligament in his neck. And running back Fred Jackson could soon be
ready for action, too. The Bills bulging list of injured players is suddenly
growing shorter, and just in time for a team attempting to mount a late-season
playoff push. “Were pretty healthy I think for the most part, and weve got some
other guys that are coming off injuries,” Kelsay said Monday before he returned
to practice for the first time in nearly two weeks. “If we can win these
ballgames coming down the stretch, and get healthy to make a push for the
playoffs, thats huge.” Kelsay declared himself ready to play in revealing the
nature of the injury thats sidelined the 10-year veteran since Nov. 8, when he
felt something pop in his neck while he was pushing a sled in practice. With 10
days rest, Kelsay feels significantly better, and added hes been assured by team
doctors that he doesnt risk further damage. “Structurally, everythings sound,”
Kelsay said, describing the injury as a minor tear. “I definitely plan on
playing. ... I have a lot of confidence that its not going to slow me down.”
Kelsay was limited to taking part in only individual drills in practice Monday,
when the Bills returned from an extended weekend break following their 19-14 win
over Miami on Thursday. If all goes well, Kelsay expects to practice Wednesday
and be ready for Sunday, when the Bills (4-6) play at Indianapolis (6-4). The
Bills are already depleted at defensive end, with starter Mark Anderson (left
knee) expected to miss at least one more game since having surgery. The news is
promising for Jackson, too, after the running back missed last weeks game since
sustaining a concussion in the final minutes of a 37-31 loss at New England on
Nov. 11. Coach Chan Gailey said Jackson is expected to complete his NFL-mandated
post-concussion tests on Tuesday, which would clear him to return to practice
the following day. “Everythings on track for him to be ready to go Wednesday,”
Gailey said. “He says hes feeling well.” Jackson attended a morning walk-through
and then watched the afternoon practice from the sideline. NFL rules exempted
him from speaking to reporters—or host his weekly TV show broadcast on Monday
night—because of his concussion. Jackson did appear to be in an upbeat mood
after he playfully grabbed a teammate in a headlock while heading out the locker
room door. The mood is significantly brighter in Buffalo since the win over
Miami. The Bills snapped a three-game skid and won for only the second time in
seven games to stay in the fringes of the AFC playoff hunt. With six games left,
Buffalo is in the mix of five teams at 4-6, with only three teams ahead of them
competing for the conferences two wild card playoff spots. Indianapolis and
Pittsburgh are both 6-4, while Cincinnatis 5-5. Thats enough for the Bills to
believe theyve got a shot, while acknowledging theyve left themselves very
little margin for error. “Last week, it was keeping the season alive, and its
the same thing now,” receiver Stevie Johnson said. “If we win, we know we still
have hope of the playoffs.” Getting healthier is a switch for a team thats
previously unraveled because of injuries. That includes last year, when a
mounting number of injuries led to the Bills losing eight of their last nine
following a 5-2 start. Knock on wood, Gaileys hoping the trend reverses this
year. “When you can start to get healthy toward the end, thats always big,”
Gailey said. “And if we can continue to do that, and we dont lose any more, that
bodes well for us.” Gailey confirmed the Bills placed tight end Mike Caussin on
season-ending injured reserve because the players surgically repaired right knee
has not yet fully healed. The Bills had until Monday to determine whether to
activate Caussin, who opened the season on the unable-to-perform/reserve list.
The second-year player accepted the teams decision, saying his knee was not yet
strong enough to handle the extra workload of practice over the past three
weeks. “It was a little too much, too quick,” Caussin said. “Its the best thing
for me, really. It gives me a chance to get back, get healthy and perform better
for this team.” Caussin had surgery in late January after tearing two ligaments
in a 40-14 win over Denver on Dec. 24. “He never got appreciably better,” Gailey
said. “He told me in his own words he was 75-80 per cent, and thats not good
enough. We werent going to release him, so we just put him on IR.” Steve Young Pink Jersey . He hit nearly every
shot just the way he wanted, worked the gallery into a frenzy with one last
charge over the final hour and left everyone buzzing—especially Jack Nicklaus
—with a shot they will talk about for years. Aldon Smith Limited Jersey . In a surprising
deal about 3 1/2 hours before the game, Seattle sent Suzuki to the Yankees for a
pair of young pitchers. After leaving the only major league team hed ever played
for, the 10-time All-Star held an emotional news conference and then joined his
new teammates in the other clubhouse at Safeco Field. http://www.fans49ersstore.com/anthony-dixon-jersey
. Fred Couples is taking advantage of it. With sweltering temperatures easing
the stiffness in his chronically bad back, the defending champion birdied the
final three holes Friday for a 7-under 63 and the second-round lead at Fox
Chapel. Colin Kaepernick Camo Jersey .C. —The
Charlotte Bobcats have rescinded their qualifying offer to restricted free agent
forward Derrick Brown, freeing up $3 million in salary cap space. Alex Boone Jersey . Once that bid slipped
away, a win was plenty for him and the New York Mets.MISSISSAUGA, Ont. —Riley
Brace scored the game-winning goal and added an assist as the Mississauga
Steelheads edged the visiting Barrie Colts 3-2 on Sunday afternoon in Ontario
Hockey League action. Stuart Percy and Andrew Goldberg also scored for the
Steelheads (1-1-0), who were down 2-0 less than five minutes into the first
period, while Dylan DeMelo picked up ttwo assists. Ray McDonald Jersey. Josh MacDonald and
Anthony Camara scored for the Colts (1-2-0). Mississaugas Tyson Teichmann
allowed two goals on the first three shots he faced but made 23 saves for his
first win of the season. Alex Fotinos stopped 27-of-30 shots for Barrie. The
Steelheads went 0 for 4 on the power play while the Colts finished 1 for 6. ’ ’
