PITTSFORD, N.Y. -- Buffalo Bills rookie receiver Marcus Easley is out indefinitely and could miss the entire season because of an apparent knee injury.

Coach Chan Gailey provided few details or specifics of what part of the body Easley hurt, except to say the team will make a final determination on the player's status within the next day. Gailey said Easley will be out for a long time, and wouldn't rule out the injury being season-ending.

The fourth-round draft pick out of Connecticut has not practiced since falling awkwardly on his knee during a training camp session on Aug. 2. Easley watched practice Tuesday from the sideline a day after meeting with doctors to get a second opinion.

He's been competing for a backup spot on the team.
