After sitting out practice Wednesday resting his lingering groin injury, Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson returned to the practice field on Thursday and was a full participant. As expected, he appears fully ready to play in Week 4 against the Cincinnati Bengals. Johnson sat out last Wednesday's practice preparing for New England, but still hauled in eight passes for 94 yards and a touchdown in the win.

Johnson was joined as a full participant by nose tackle Torell Troup (hamstring) and inside linebacker Kirk Morrison (hamstring), who both practiced fully on Wednesday. Both will likely be healthy enough to play on Sunday.

The news is not so good - again - for starting right guard Kraig Urbik (knee), however. Given a chance at playing on Monday by head coach Chan Gailey, Urbik has now missed two straight practices this week, and has officially been ruled out. Chad Rinehart will make his second straight start.

Joining Urbik on the sidelines Thursday were inside linebacker Chris White (hamstring) and cornerbacks Terrence McGee (hamstring) and Aaron Williams (collarbone). All three are unlikely to play Sunday at Paul Brown Stadium. Finally, running back Johnny White (ankle) was a full participant after being limited Wednesday.
