Bell, Caussin, Urbik ruled out for New England

The Buffalo Bills will be down another three players for their season finale Sunday in New England.

Tight end Mike Caussin (right knee), center Kraig Urbik (right knee) and left tackle Demetrius Bell (knee/ankle) will all miss the last game of the 2011 season. All three suffered serious injuries in Saturday's 40-14 victory over Denver in the home finale.

Coach Chan Gailey, however, was less than clear on whether the injuries would require surgery (Caussin said on his Twitter account he has a torn ACL, so he will).

"Possibly all three. I'm pretty sure," Gailey said, before adding, "I'm not sure."

If Bell and Urbik do require surgery, that's three of the team's starting five offensive linemen from the season opener who face rehabilitation from surgery during the offseason (starting center Eric Wood had surgery in November for a torn ACL).

Bell is an unrestricted free agent, while Urbik is a restricted free agent. The audio link is below to hear the rest of Gailey's interview with the media from today.
