Bills DT Dareus doubt­ful with ham­string in­jury

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - SPORTS -

Buf­falo Bills de­fen­sive tackle Mar­cell Dareus is doubt­ful for Sun­day’s game against the San Fran­cisco 49ers.

Dareus has yet to play for the Bills this sea­son. He missed the first four games with a sus­pen­sion af­ter vi­o­lat­ing the league’s sub­stance abuse pol­icy, and in­jured his ham­string af­ter re­turn­ing to the prac­tice field last week.

The third over­all pick in the 2011 draft, Dareus has been one of Buf­falo’s best play­ers over the pre­vi­ous five sea­sons. He has 253 tack­les and 30 1-2 sacks in his ca­reer.

Nine Bills are ques­tion­able, in­clud­ing LB Zach Brown (an­kle), LT Cordy Glenn (an­kle), S Aaron Wil­liams (an­kle), TE Charles Clay (knee) and Dareus’ likely re­place­ment, DT Corbin Bryant (an­kle).

Brown has been a ma­jor ad­di­tion for the Bills this sea­son and leads the NFL in tack­les with 60.
