FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- They've seen it, run it, and even have its innovator in-house. But the Bills still aren't quite sure what to expect from the Tim Tebow-led Wildcat package.

Coach Chan Gailey has picked the brain of his quarterbacks coach David Lee, the guy who introduced the formation to Tony Sparano. But Gailey admitted Lee's expertise won't account for all of the wrinkles the Jets will throw at them in Sunday's opener.

"When you don't know what you're going to see, it creates a little bit of a problem," the Bills coach said. "It does."

Shark food

Let's just say Wayne Hunter's glad to be out of New York. The former underachieving right tackle is embracing the opportunity to put the past behind him in St. Louis -- and get as far away as he can from Jets fans.

"They're like sharks," he told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "If they don't like you, they let you know right off the bat. And even if you're doing good, they might just not like you for the heck of it. It's brutal over there."

Hunter was traded to the Rams in exchange for Jason Smith.

Despite Sione Po'uha's optimism about his status for the season opener, Rex Ryan still isn't convinced. "He needs to be able to hold in there, anchor in there on double teams. Unless our doctors and trainers are convinced he can do that, there's no sense putting him out there." . . . Dustin Keller (hamstring) ran routes rather than practiced, but still expects to play . . . LB Nick Bellore (hamstring), RG Brandon Moore (hip), LB Bryan Thomas (ankle), Po'uha (lower back), DE Mike DeVito (calf) and RB Joe McKnight (hamstring) were limited. T Dennis Landolt (knee) is out . . . LB Aaron Maybin (6-4, 240) acted as DE Mario Williams (6-6, 292) against the offensive line.
