Bills @ Giants: Shawne Merriman Ruled Out with Achilles Injury

According to ESPN Buffalo Bills outside linebacker Shawne Merriman has officially been ruled out for Sunday's game against the New York Giants. This comes as no surprise since Merriman was already listed as doubtful on Friday's injury report.

Merriman's Achilles flared up during Thursday's practice, and he was held out of Friday's practice altogether.

Merriman said Friday he didn't think the injury was significant ...

Merriman finished last season on injured reserve because of a nagging injury to his right tendon.

Merriman has nine tackles and one sack in five games this season.

The Bills will also be without linebacker Chris Kelsay, who's out with a calf injury. With Merriman and Kelsay sidelined with injuries the Bills will have only two healthy outside linebackers for the Giants game.
