Bills superstar rookie running back Marshawn Lynch is unlikely to play this Sunday night against the Patriots. From ESPN.com:
Coach Dick Jauron on Wednesday all but ruled out Lynch from playing after the rookie missed practice because of a severely sprained left ankle.
“It’s very sore right now and I would say we’re not overly optimistic,” Jauron said, referring to the chances of Lynch playing.
Jauron then raised concerns that the injury, which Lynch got in a 13-10 win at Miami on Sunday, might be severe enough to keep him out for more than one week.
My Take: If there was any chance of the Bills upsetting the Patriots, it goes out the window without Lynch. The stud rookie could have caused problems with his hard running ability. With J.P. Losman now forced to carry the load, it could be a long night in Orchard Park, NY for the Bills.
