ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) – Patriots defensive lineman Richard Seymour hopes his sore left elbow won’t prevent him from practicing this week.

“We’ll see how it feels in the morning,” Seymour said, following the Patriots’ 28-6 win over Buffalo on Sunday. “It’ll probably be pretty sore. But we’ll see what it is and take it day by day.”

Seymour did not return after helping limit Willis McGahee to a 2-yard gain late in the second quarter. He said someone came down on his arm while it was planted on the turf.

He spent the second half on the sideline with his elbow wrapped.

Patriots also lost starting safety Eugene Wilson, who hurt his right leg in the third quarter and did not return.

Coach Bill Belichick did not provide an update on either player’s condition. New England, which played without tight end Daniel Graham (ankle) and offensive tackle Nick Kaczur (shoulder), plays at Minnesota next weekend.

The Bills lost reserve defensive end Ryan Denney, who hurt his right hamstring in the first quarter and did not return. Coach Dick Jauron did not provide an injury update.

It was the latest injury to affect the Bills’ defensive line, which is minus rookie defensive tackle John McCargo, who was placed on injured reserve two weeks ago with a broken left foot.

Defensive end Anthony Hargrove made his debut for the Bills after being acquired last week in a trade with St. Louis. The third-year veteran finished with two tackles.
