Henne would face wounded Bills secondary



Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Graham


ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- There's a lot of anticipation in South Florida about just how good Miami Dolphins quarterback Chad Henne is.

Henne probably will make his first NFL start Sunday against the Buffalo Bills in Land Shark Stadium. If he does, then he will face a hurting secondary.

The ramshackle Bills roster got even more tattered in Sunday's 27-7 loss to the New Orleans Saints.

Three-quarters of their starting defensive backfield got banged up. Right cornerback Leodis McKelvin suffered a broken fibula. Free safety Donte Whitner needed to undergo thumb surgery Monday. Strong safety Bryan Scott injured his ankle.

Left cornerback Terrence McGee is the only one who escaped unscathed.

Bills coach Dick Jauron wouldn't rule out Whitner for Sunday, calling him week to week. Scott was being examined when Jauron spoke Monday afternoon. McKelvin definitely is out.

Jauron also said left tackle Demetrius Bell has a groin injury, but didn't seem concerned.
