Owens, four others questionable for Patriots game

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Terrell Owens, who missed practice on Thursday and Friday due to illness, has been listed as questionable for Sunday's home tilt with the New England Patriots.

Owens, who has 45 receptions for 705 yards and 4 touchdowns on the season, is Buffalo's leading receiver. The upset-minded Bills would likely be forced to start Josh Reed next to veteran Lee Evans on Sunday if Owens can't go. Owens was in team meetings on Friday, reports, and Owens has been listed as questionable and played in games earlier this season.

Coming up on the end of the one-year, $6.5 million deal he signed this past March, Owens may be embarking on the final three games of his Buffalo career. He will be an unrestricted free agent after the season.

Meanwhile, three other players - left tackle Jonathan Scott, reserve tackle Jamon Meredith and special teamer Justin Jenkins - are listed as questionable alongside Owens. Unlike T.O., all three participated in practice on Friday.

Jairus Byrd, who continues to deal with a groin injury, is listed as probable.

To close out the week, head coach Perry Fewell had the Bills practicing outdoors. Here's a worthy note from WGR 550:

Andy Levitre was the only Bill to brave the frigid outdoor practice in short sleeves, and scoffed at the idea of wearing long sleeves.
