Bills vs. Jets: Bills May Be Without DT Stroud

The Buffalo Bills returned to the practice field Wednesday afternoon to begin preparations for Sunday's matchup with the New York Jets. They did so minus three starters: tight end Jonathan Stupar, defensive end Marcus Stroud and linebacker Andra Davis.

Chan Gailey doesn't sound overly optimistic that Stroud - who, along with Davis, was absent on Wednesday - will be available on Sunday. He did tell reporters that he thought all three guys would be available, but mentioned Stroud as the player with the best chance of missing the game.

Should Stroud miss the game, one of the team's two defensive linemen that have been inactive for the first three games would get to make his 2010 debut. In an ideal world, that'd be rookie Alex Carrington, but if the Bills plan on using plenty of nickel and dime packages, it wouldn't be surprising to see John McCargo get the nod. Either way, if Stroud practices Thursday, that discussion may become moot.
