The Buffalo Bills have finished up practice preparation for a Week 2 tilt with the Oakland Raiders on Sunday, and for a second straight week, it appears that the team will be without one of its most prominent defensive line depth players.

Torell Troup, who missed last week's season opener with a back injury, has been officially listed as doubtful for the Raiders game despite practicing on a limited basis all week. Should he not be able to go, the Bills will again be playing with just five defensive linemen (plus end-turned-outside-linebacker Alex Carrington) against one of the league's most powerful rushing offenses. That means reserves like Kellen Heard - who was a member of the Raiders' practice squad last year - will need to step up when called into action.

As expected, veteran cornerback Terrence McGee has been ruled out with a hamstring injury. Second-year linebacker Arthur Moats is listed as probable after missing several weeks with a knee injury, and most importantly, wideout Stevie Johnson is also probable after sitting out of practice with a groin injury.

More on the Raiders' injury situation when that information is available. Their list could be considerably longer.
