KEYS TO THE GAME
Bills: LB Shawne Merriman was claimed off waivers. The three-time Pro Bowl pick for the San Diego Chargers, who has seen his career derailed by injuries and a steroid suspension, isn't expected to play this Sunday against Chicago but is on track to play the second half of the year with the Bills. He's due to become a free agent in 2011 and has an opportunity to showcase himself for Buffalo and other teams. ... OT Cornell Green was placed on season-ending injured reserve with a knee injury suffered two weeks ago. Green was expected back, but the team needed to free up a roster spot after claiming Merriman off waivers. ... CB Terrence McGee, who has missed three games with a back/nerve injury, is practicing fully and expected to play Sunday against Chicago in Toronto. Buffalo defensive backs have yet to intercept a pass. ... LB Andra Davis is nursing a sore shoulder again but is expected to play Sunday against Chicago in Toronto. The Bills' run defense remains last in the NFL and faces the versatile Forte. ... G Eric Wood was given time to rest this week. He needs to sit out practice to help a sore knee/leg recover. He broke his leg in two places last season but hasn't missed a start. He is expected to be fine for Sunday's game against Chicago in Toronto. ... LB Aaron Maybin, the team's No. 1 pick in 2009 who has been inactive for the past two games, will slide farther down the depth chart after the team claimed the veteran Merriman off waivers. Maybin's chances of getting on the field the rest of the season are bleak if Merriman can resurrect his career in Buffalo.
