Bills WR Huggins out with shoulder injury

PITTSFORD, N.Y. -- Buffalo Bills backup receiver Felton Huggins is out indefinitely after hurting his left shoulder in practice on Monday.

Without providing much detail, coach Chan Gailey would only say that Huggins was "hurt pretty bad," and didn't rule out the possibility of the player having surgery. Huggins, competing for a backup spot, was hurt when he landed hard while making a diving catch in the first of Buffalo's two practices on Monday.

Fullback Corey McIntyre also left the first practice after hurting his lower right leg while blocking on a run play. Gailey referred to the injury as minor. McIntyre had his right ankle wrapped while riding a stationary bike, watching the team's evening practice.

Gailey also revealed that receiver Marcus Easley, a rookie fourth-round draft pick, was getting a second opinion to determine the severity of a knee injury that's kept him out for a week. Easley was hurt when he landed awkwardly on his knee during practice last week.

On the bright side, injured veteran linebackers Paul Posluszny, who is coming off groin surgery, and Keith Ellison practiced for the first time since training camp opened July 29. Both were limited to taking part in non-contact drills.

Gailey said Ellison has a better chance than Posluszny to play in Buffalo's preseason-opener at Washington on Friday.

Right tackle Cornell Green did not practice after hurting his right leg Saturday.
