ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -Bills defensive end Chris Kelsay practiced Wednesday for the first time since spraining his left ankle more than two weeks ago and could be ready to play at Cleveland on Sunday.
Coach Dick Jauron said he's optimistic Kelsay will play, but trainers want to see how the ankle responds through the rest of the week. Kelsay, a four-year starter, has missed two games since he was hurt tripping over a teammate during a 36-14 loss at Jacksonville on Nov. 25.
The Bills (7-6) have won six of their past eight games to remain in playoff contention and are preparing for a key showdown against the Browns (8-5), who control the AFC's sixth and final playoff spot.
Kelsay ranks seventh on the team with 53 tackles, is second with two sacks. He also has an interception, which he returned for a touchdown, and a fumble recovery in 11 games this season.
Reserve linebacker Coy Wire also could be ready to return after he practiced for the first time since sustaining a neck injury against Jacksonville.
Starting free safety George Wilson is out indefinitely after breaking two ribs in a 38-17 win over Miami last weekend. Wilson said he feels fine after spending two days under observation in a Buffalo-area hospital.
