The Buffalo Bills will be able to play host to the Cleveland Browns on Sunday in Ralph Wilson Stadium after last week's massive snowstorm in western New York buried the facility.
Bills president Russ Brandon announced Tuesday that the stadium should be fully operational by Sunday. The team was forced to move last week's game against the New York Jets to Monday night in Detroit because of the snow. Buffalo came away with a 38-3 win in Ford Field.
Brandon said there is some minor damage to the Bills' stadium, but there are no structural concerns caused by more than 5 feet of snow that enveloped the region.
"We will be good to go Sunday," a Bills official said. "Shovelers are no longer needed. Had over 500 people (participating) and with the (temperature) warmup, we made great progress."
The Bills' practice facility sustained minor damage but also is available for use.
"I can't stress enough the leadership that coach (Doug) Marrone showed through this whole process," Brandon said.
