Leber hurting

Childress was uncertain Monday whether strong-side linebacker Ben Leber (sprained left knee) will be able to play Sunday at Buffalo. Leber was injured early in Sunday's loss but returned to the game.

"I wish I knew that," Childress said when asked whether Leber would miss the Bills games. "I'll say this; he [was hurt] fairly early and really reached down. He went in and got treatment, put a brace on it. ... I don't have a feel for what kind of healer he is. If [the Chicago game] is any indication ... I'd expect to see him this week."

Jason Glenn is listed as Leber's backup on the strong side.



Childress also revealed Pat Williams suffered a sprained ankle/foot but said the nose tackle "should be fine."
