Bills lose two starting offensive linemen, reserve tight end

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- The Buffalo Bills' losing streak is over, and yet their string of injuries mounts.

With 16 players already on injured reserve, the Bills will limp toward the finish line after losing three more players to injuries, including starting offensive linemen Demetrius Bell and Kraig Urbik. The Bills close their season at New England on Sunday.

Coach Chan Gailey on Monday ruled out left tackle Bell (knee/ankle), right guard/center Urbik (right knee) and reserve tight end Mike Caussin (right knee). All three were hurt in a 40-14 win over Denver on Saturday as the Bills (6-9) snapped a seven-game skid.

Without identifying the nature of the injuries, Gailey said there's a possibility all three players will require surgery.
