Bills vs. Panthers 2013: Jairus Byrd limited entering Week 2

Timothy T. Ludwig-USA TODAY Spor

The Buffalo Bills are back on the practice field preparing for a Week 2 bout with Carolina, but Jairus Byrd remains a limited participant as he continues to battle plantar fasciitis.

Buffalo Bills safety Jairus Byrd began practice for Week 2 the same way he ended a trio of practices entering Week 1: limited. Byrd continues to deal with plantar fasciitis in both feet, and was limited on Wednesday as the Bills began preparations to play the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.

Five more players did not participate in Wednesday's session: wide receiver Marquise Goodwin (hand), center Doug Legursky (knee), cornerbacks Stephon Gilmore (wrist) and Ron Brooks (foot), and kicker Dustin Hopkins (groin). Gilmore and Legursky were spotted on the practice field, but neither was dressed and only doing light work to the side. Gilmore still has a cast on his surgically repaired left wrist.

Goodwin and Brooks, who each had surgery Monday coming off of injuries sustained in Sunday's loss to New England, are not candidates for IR with a designation to return, per head coach Doug Marrone.

Gilmore, Legursky and Hopkins all missed Week 1, and appear likely to do so again - and if they are, they'll be joined on the sidelines by Goodwin and Brooks, meaning that the Bills will only need two healthy scratches for the inactive list on Sunday.
