ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Buffalo Bills coach Chan Gailey is not optimistic either tight end Scott Chandler or rookie cornerback Aaron Williams will play at San Diego this weekend.

Gailey provided the update Monday, a day after both were hurt in the third quarter of a 23-17 loss to Tennessee.

He gave Chandler an "outside chance" of playing after the team's top tight end hurt his left ankle while being gang-tackled and stripped of the ball.

Gailey calls the injury to Williams' right knee not as severe as initially expected. He gave him a "real shot" of returning Dec. 11, when Buffalo hosts Miami.

Buffalo (5-7) has lost five straight.

Gailey expects starting safety George Wilson to miss his fourth straight game with a neck injury.
