RB news highlights injury report for Bills

The injury bug seems to have hit the Bills offensive backfield. The most serious of which is the injury to the team's 3rd down back and special teams' captain.

Sammy Morris is expected to miss at least two weeks after surgery to repair a sports hernia.

Morris did not play in the team's loss at Miami on Sunday with what the Bills initially thought was a strained groin. Head Coach Gregg Williams said the extent of the injury wasn't fully discovered until further tests were done after the game. As a result, he is listed as OUT on the team's weekly injury report.

Meanwhile, the status of starting running back Travis Henry is still in question. Henry bruised his ribs while being tackled during the second quarter of the loss to the Dolphins this past Sunday.

Williams said Henry was feeling better, and his condition would have to be re-evaluated later in the week to determine whether he'd play or not Sunday against the Eagles. Although the third year pro did not practice today and is listed as QUESTIONABLE on this week's injury report.

Even if Henry is healthy enough to play, the team took a safety measure today when they signed Nick Maddux to the practice squad after cutting wide receiver Jerel Myers. Maddux joins Ken Simonton at RB on the squad. Maddux was in camp with the Chargers this preseason after playing collegiately at Florida State. Though if Henry does miss teh Eagles game expect second year back Joe Burns to get the majority of carries.

Finally, the Bills also announced that backup fullback Phillip Crosby cracked his fibula against Miami and has been listed as DOUBTFUL in the weekly injury report.
