Injured in practice on Wednesday, Bills LB
Head coach Chan Gailey addressed Mitchell’s status following practice Thursday, after he did not participate. Gailey confirmed that the veteran linebacker will be undergoing further tests for a foot injury sustained in practice Wednesday.
“We’re still evaluating what’s going on,” said Gailey. “Since he didn’t work today and we’re giving him more tests you’d have to put him more toward the doubtful category, but I don’t have to do that officially until (Friday).”

“It’s looking a little dim for him at this point, but we’re still holding out hope at this time,” Gailey said.
“Chris has done some good things,” said Gailey. “He’s not a finished product, just like many of our players are not a finished product. He’s still learning the position. He’s come a long way. He can rush the passer which is good. He’s big, strong and physical, which allows him to play the run. He’s just getting a better feel for standing up because he’s used to having his hand on the ground.”
