Bills' Dareus injures hamstring Wednesday

A hamstring injury has claimed another member of the Buffalo Bills the day before they leave for their next preseason game. After going through the paces at Wednesday's practice, Pro Bowl defensive tackle Marcell Dareus had to be limited in the latter part of the session after he sustained an injury to his hamstring.

While his status for Friday's contest is unknown the Bills had a similar situation occur last Friday, the day before they left for Canton, Ohio and the Hall of Fame Game. Wide receiver Marquise Goodwin injured his hamstring and was held out of the game against the New York Giants because of it.

The Bills were also without four players participating in practice. Leodis McKelvin (hip), Da'Norris Searcy, Doug Legursky (back) and Edawn Coughman (oblique) all did not practice Wednesday, leaving their status for Friday night in doubt. Searcy was excused from Wednesday's practice for personal reasons, with his status for their upcoming preseason game being up in the air as well.

Safeties Derek Brim and Kenny Ladler, along with tight end Tony Moeaki all participated in the individual drills, but did not take any snaps during team drills.

The Bills take on the Carolina Panthers at Bank of America Stadium on Friday. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 pm.
