ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Buffalo safety Donte Whitner has a separated right shoulder and isn't likely to play Sunday at New England.
Bills coach Dick Jauron says Whitner's status is week-to-week after he was hurt in the second half Sunday against the Jets.
Whitner was the Bills' first-round draft pick in 2006 out of Ohio State.
Buffalo has fallen to 5-3 after winning their first four as injuries continue to deplete the defense.
