Coach Chan Gailey said Tuesday that rookie linebacker Chris White, who suffered an ankle injury during the team's preseason opener in Chicago, will miss the next 2-3 weeks. He missed practice on Monday and Tuesday.
"He's a couple of weeks, three weeks away," Gailey said. "He got rolled up on pretty good so he's going to be out a while."
Gailey added that wide receiver Craig Davis is expected to miss the next week with an undisclosed injury.
Sideline views: Linebacker Shawne Merriman missed most of practice with what he called tightness in his leg. He plans on returning to practice today. Kyle Williams and Terrence McGee left practice briefly with minor injuries but returned. In addition to Andy Levitre taking snaps with the second team behind Chad Rinehart, Colin Brown also received reps at left guard.

Quote of the day: "When I was younger in the game, a lot of the guys took their time to teach me a lot, pull me to the side to get better at certain things. So that's my job now. My job is to not only help them to get better but help anyone who needs guidance or to just ask questions to get better as well." -- Shawne Merriman on helping develop the Bills' young linebackers.
