Bills' Shawne Merriman likely out
Merriman missed Wednesday's practice because of a shoulder injury, but coach Chan Gailey said Merriman's Achilles flared up during Thursday's practice, forcing him to miss Friday.
Merriman finished last season on injured reserve because of a nagging injury to his right tendon.
With starting outside linebacker Chris Kelsay already ruled out because of a calf injury, the Bills (4-1) will have just two healthy outside linebackers -- Danny Batten and Arthur Moats -- vs. the Giants (3-2).
