Patriots cornerback Devin McCourty made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Friday morning.
The Patriots are expected to be without injured safety Patrick Chung Sunday when they visit the Bills.
"That happens in a season," McCourty said. "I think we're prepared for him not to be out there. Guys have to step up. He's played a lot of plays early in the season for us. It will be a little different without him. But I'm excited to see guys get that opportunity to step up and play well come Sunday."
