Flynn, Heap unlikely for Bills

TRAINING ROOM: While wide receiver Travis Taylor continues to practice with the starting offense five games after aggravating a groin injury, it looks like center Mike Flynn and tight end Todd Heap won't be available Sunday.

They're more likely to play Oct. 31 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Flynn broke his collarbone in the final days of training camp and has missed all five games. He's been able to hit the blocking sled and did some contact work Monday. He underwent another X-ray Monday afternoon.

"I don't think he'll be ready or be released for this week, but we believe the image will tell us that he will be ready for Philadelphia," Billick said.
Added Flynn: "I don't think it was ever something where I would get cleared on Friday and start on Sunday. I think me falling on it is the biggest thing they're concerned about."

Billick reiterated that he's not as optimistic about Heap, who sprained an ankle in the second week of the season against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Heap began running last week and could be a game-time decision depending on how he handles a more strenuous Wednesday workout.

"It's frustrating to sit and watch," Heap said. "I don't like to miss a play, let alone a game. I wish it was getting better a lot faster. The hardest thing is probably breaking down and cutting.  Straight-line running is getting better every day."
