Byrd, as was the case during the Bills' first two weeks of practices, was a limited participant in all three sessions this week. In Weeks 1 and 2, however, Byrd wound up listed as doubtful on the final injury report; he's questionable this time around, lending a bit of optimism to a situation that hasn't changed drastically since Byrd signed his franchise tender and reported to the team late in the pre-season.
Along with injured cornerback Stephon Gilmore (ruled out with his wrist injury), Byrd will travel to New Jersey for the game, and has a better shot at playing than he's yet had this season. Three more players that have also been ruled out will stay in Orchard Park for the game: wide receiver Marquise Goodwin, cornerback Ron Brooks and kicker Dustin Hopkins.
Doug Legursky, who returned to the practice field following a preseason knee injury just this week, is also listed as questionable. If he can play, he'll bump either Thomas Welch or Sam Young to the inactive list. Justin Rogers will start once again for Gilmore on the outside, with Nickell Robey manning the slot in place of Brooks. Dan Carpenter will kick in Hopkins' stead for a third straight week.
