PITTSFORD, N.Y. (AP) -John McCargo's injury troubles continued Tuesday when the Bills backup defensive tackle hurt his left ankle and was unable to complete practice.
Coach Dick Jauron said McCargo was fine, but will have more tests. The Bills, coming off a 13-10 win over New Orleans in their preseason-opener last week, prepare to host Atlanta on Friday.
McCargo called the injury ``nothing serious,'' saying he was hurt when he fell back on his ankle during an 11-on-11 drill. He limped off and was immediately attended to by trainers and a team doctor.
It's potentially the latest setback for the second of Buffalo's two 2006 first-round draft picks. He missed the final 11 games last season with a broken left foot. McCargo missed practice time earlier this training camp with a strained abdomen and was held out of the team's spring minicamps after he had a second operation to repair the broken foot earlier this year.
The injuries have hurt McCargo's chances of competing with Kyle Williams for the starting job alongside Larry Tripplett.
Starting center Melvin Fowler also twisted his left ankle and was unable to finish practice. Starting right tackle Langston Walker was held out of practice because of a sore elbow.
``I'm worried but not overly worried about all of them, and hopefully they'll heal fast,'' Jauron said.
