Bills president: 'No red flags' stopping next Sunday's game in Buffalo

Sunday November 23rd, 2014

Buffalo Bills president Russ Brandon told CBS Sports that there are "no red flags" preventing the team from returning to Buffalo this week and hosting the Cleveland Browns on Nov. 30. 

Brandon is currently in Detroit, where this Sunday's home game against the Jets was moved due to the Buffalo-area snowstorm, but said he has been in contact every few hours with team personnel at Ralph Wilson Stadium and the training facility.

The Bills plan to charter back home after Monday's game, and besides some concerns about flooding and another storm set to pass through on Tuesday, Brandon does not foresee any major issues. 

On Thursday, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter that Buffalo would be "hard pressed" to get the stadium ready in time for the game against Cleveland. 

Brandon told CBS Sports that none of the Bills players' families are in distress and the team thinks the players will be able to safely travel to and from practice this week.

The Bills are 5-5 heading into Monday's game, while the Jets are 2-8.
