Bills' Ellis out due to "family emergency"

Chris Ellis, a reserve defensive end for the Bills, will miss Sunday’s game at Miami because of a family emergency the team announced Saturday.

Buffalo provided no further details on Ellis’ situation.

He is now the seventh Buffalo player ruled out of this week’s game joining tackle Demetrius Bell, DT John McCargo, corner Leodis McKelvin (who was placed on IR this week), LB Paul Posluszny and safeties Bryan Scott and Donte Whitner. Tight end Shawn Nelson and DT Kyle Williams are probable.

So a tough season for the  0-3 1-2 (oops, it just feels like 0-3) Bills just keeps getting tougher.
