Bills prepare for Packers, Torbor to practice

Orchard Park (Jeff Russo - WKBW.com) The Buffalo Bills got back to work on Wednesday as the team prepares for a trip to Green Bay this Sunday.



The Bills enter week two with some moving parts at linebacker. Head Coach Chan Gailey said on Wednesday morning that Keith Ellison will take over for injured linebacker Paul Posluszny against the Packers.
"I think Keith is the guy that is going to have to play the majority of the time", said Gailey. 8-year veteran, and newly acquired LB Akin Ayodele is also expected to see some action in Green Bay, but it will be Ellison who gets the majority of the work in place of Posluszny who is out 2-3 weeks with a knee injury.



Meanwhile linebacker Reggie Torbor told Eyewitness Sports on Wednesday that he expects to play against the Packers. Torbor missed the opener against the Dolphins with a chest injury, but says he will practice on Wednesday, and hopes to be ready to go against the Packers. Chris Ellis took Torbor's spot in the line-up against the Dolphins.



The 0-1 Bills will head to Green Bay on Sunday looking to get the offense back on track. The unit, led by quarterback Trent Edwards, produced only 166 yards of offense against the Dolphins. Chan Gailey says the key against the Packers will be to get the ground game going. The Bills rushed for only 50 yards in the opener and Gailey says this week it's about "trying to get back to the basics".



Eyewitness Sports will have more from Bills Media day tonight at 5,6,11.
