Bills' decimated D gets Whitner, Posluszny back

BY foxsports • October 14, 2009

Things might finally be looking up for the Bills injury-riddled defense.

After losing one starter after another, the Bills were buoyed after safety Donte Whitner and linebacker Paul Posluszny returned to practice Wednesday. Both have a chance to play Sunday, when Buffalo (1-4) plays the Jets (3-2).

Their additions would provide a much-needed lift for a defense that placed linebackers Kawika Mitchell and Marcus Buggs on injured reserve this week.

Defensive coordinator Perry Fewell got the news Tuesday after Posluszny and Whitner were medically cleared. "That was the only time I smiled," Fewell said.

Posluszny's missed four games with a broken left arm. Whitner's missed two weeks with an injured thumb.
