Anyone picking up Burns yet??

No word on how serious Henry's injury is. Is Burns worth a pickup?

I'm just going off the top of my head here, so you might want to do a little research, but I think Sammy Morris is listed as the backup, and he's out with a pretty minor leg injury if I'm not mistaken. I don't know the extent of Henry's injury, but if he's out any length of time, Morris should be the one to go to.

Thats quality advice. Thank you. I checked it out and Sammy Morris should be back next week as the featured back if Henry is not a go. Thanks.

From what I just read his ribs were sore, but not broken. He's being re-evaluated today, and as of right now, expects to play on Sunday...

I have Henry but I don't think any of the rbs are worth picking up even if Henry doesn't play. Even then, it would be rbbc.

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -- Buffalo backup running back Sammy Morris will miss at least two weeks after surgery Monday to repair a sports hernia.

Morris missed Buffalo's 17-7 loss at Miami on Sunday with what the Bills initially thought was a strained groin. Coach Gregg Williams said the extent of the injury wasn't fully discovered until further tests were done after the game.

The status of starting running back Travis Henry is still uncertain. Henry bruised his ribs while being tackled during the second quarter of the loss to the Dolphins.

Williams said Henry was feeling better Monday, and his condition would have to be re-evaluated.

The Bills, who traded Olandis Gary to Detroit before the start of the season, have only one other tailback on their depth chart, third-stringer Joe Burns. Rookie Willis McGahee is on the non-football injury list and isn't eligible to be activated until after the sixth week of the season.

Even if Henry is healthy enough to play, Williams said the team will consider signing a running back.

The Bills also announced that backup fullback Phil Crosby cracked his fibula against Miami.
