ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -Josh Reed is out indefinitely with injuries to his ankle and Achilles' tendon, leaving the Buffalo Bills minus one of their most reliable third-down receivers.
Though coach Dick Jauron wouldn't say Monday how much time Reed might miss, it generally takes players two to three weeks to recuperate from such injuries, depending on their severity. Jauron also didn't indicate which ankle Reed hurt late in the second quarter of a 25-16 loss at Miami on Sunday.
Reed ranks second on the team with 26 catches for 288 yards. He is also second on the Bills, and tied for 16th in the AFC, with eight catches for 116 yards in third-down situations. Without Reed, the Bills will have to rely more on slot receiver Roscoe Parrish and rookie second-round pick James Hardy to play behind starter Lee Evans.
The Bills (5-2), in the midst of playing three straight games against AFC East rivals, host the New York Jets (4-3) on Sunday. Buffalo has lost two of three and now shares top spot in the division with New England, which it will face on Nov. 9.

Reserve defensive tackle Darwin Walker was driving to the team's walkthrough Saturday morning when he was involved in a car accident near Bank of America Stadium.
A team spokesman initially described it as a fender-bender, but coach John Fox acknowledged Monday it was a ``pretty serious accident'' that caused Walker to miss the win over Arizona due to general soreness.
``No structural damage. Luckily it wasn't more serious than it is,'' Fox said. ``He was just a little bit too stiff and sore both Saturday night and Sunday morning. He didn't sleep real good either.''
There were few details about the wreck, but Fox said Walker's car suffered extensive damage.
Walker, signed to a free-agent deal by Carolina in the offseason, has four tackles in six games.
