Buffalo Bills free safety Jairus Byrd has been listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns, but head coach Chan Gailey expects Byrd to play. There was some doubt early this week about whether or not Byrd (ankle) would be available after missing practice on Wednesday, but after being limited Thursday and Friday, it looks like he'll make it.

Nick Barnett, meanwhile, is listed as probable with a knee injury. He missed practice on Thursday but returned in full today; again, Gailey expects Barnett to play.

The only two Bills players that won't be playing: running back Fred Jackson (two weeks into a purported four-week rehab, though he may be ahead of schedule) and receiver Ruvell Martin (ankle). With Martin sitting, the Bills will need to find a replacement punt gunner on special teams; CBSSports.com's Mark Ludwiczak reports that those duties will likely fall to cornerbacks Leodis McKelvin and Justin Rogers.
