ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -- Buffalo Bills receiver Roscoe Parrish
will miss four to six weeks after having surgery to repair ligament
damage in his right thumb.
Coach Dick Jauron says Parrish was hurt during the fourth
quarter of last weekend's 24-23 win over Oakland. Parrish continued
playing and scored on a 14-yard catch, which cut the Raiders' lead
to 23-21 with 4 minutes left.
Jauron says Tuesday's operation was brief but intricate. He says
the injury was so severe there were initial concerns that Parrish
could miss the entire season.
Parrish has seven catches for 60 yards and a touchdown as the
Bills' Number 3 receiver. He's also scored a TD on a 63-yard punt
return. The 3-and-0 Bills play at St. Louis this weekend.
