(WKBW.com) Bills rookie defensive end Marcell Dareus told Kiss 98.5 radio on Thursday morning that he was kicked in the calf on Wednesday, but that he hopes to play Saturday against Jacksonville.



The first round draft pick was reportedly seen on crutches on Wednesday following practice. Dareus told the radio station "I got kicked in my calf and they said I bruised a muscle and they didn't want to take a risk, so they sent me out of practice and I got some treatment."



The Bills are schedule to practice at 2pm, where Head Coach Chan Gailey is expected to address the injury for the first time. Eyewitness Sports will have the latest tonight on EWN at 5 and 6.
