Bills Lose Wood AND McKinney for season with injuries

  • Posted on November 23, 2009 at 1:01 pm

Perry Fewell just got finished addressing the media following yesterday’s hard fought and heartbreaking three point loss at Jacksonville.

Not only is Eric Wood done for the season, but so is Seth McKinney.  McKinney injured his knee against Jacksonville.  He was starting at left guard after Andy Levitre slid over to replace injured tackle Demetrius Bell.

The Bills will now have to make to roster moves this week on the offensive line as they only have five able bodies there for this Sunday’s game against Miami.  Christian Gaddis will very likely be promoted from the practice squad to take one spot, and the club will look at other prospects to occupy the other.

Marshawn Lynch (shoulder) and John McCargo (calf) were also hurt Sunday and will be evaluated on a day to day basis.

  • Posted on November 23, 2009 at 12:17 pm

The Buffalo Bills dropped an 18-15 decision yesterday to the Jacksonville Jaguars, once again squandering a fourth quarter lead in defeat. Perry Fewell’s Bills had many of the same problems that Dick Jauron’s Bills had - which isn’t surprising, as it’s kind of the same team - but there was at least one major difference that’s worth mentioning in this week’s film session.

We’ve got eight topics of discussion in this week’s film review. Let’s get this over with, eh?

NU Falls to Austin Peay in Glen Wilkes Classic Finale

  • Posted on November 23, 2009 at 6:50 am

The Niagara men’s basketball team (3-2) had a torrid start to its Glenn Wilkes Classic finale, but eventually cooled off in the second half and fell to Austin Peay (2-3) on Sunday evening, 69-67. The Purple Eagles had four players in double figures in the loss.

“It really was a tale of two halves today,” Niagara head coach Joe Mihalich said. “But I am really proud of our guys and the way they have responded to adversity in the first few games of the season.”

The Purple Eagles jumped out to a 17 point lead just six minutes into the game after connecting on seven of their first eight three-pointers. NU shot 51.9 percent (14-for-27) from the floor in the first half, including 8-for-13 (61.5 percent) from behind the arc. In the second half, however, Austin Peay connected on 63.0 percent of its shots (17-for-27). The Governors rallied in the second half and took a 58-57 lead with 6:18 remaining.
