The Buffalo Bills will be without safety George Wilson for the second consecutive week when they take on the New York Jets this weekend and a few others will be joining him on the sidelines.
In addition to the loss of Fred Jackson, who was placed on Injured Reserve earlier this week with a leg fracture, wide receiver Naaman Roosevelt (shoulder) has been ruled out for this weekend's game. In his place will be Kamar Aiken, who was elevated from the practice squad when Donald Jones was placed on injured reserve
David Nelson, who had been limited while continuing to overcome the illness that drained the wideout last week, practiced fully on Friday as did Stevie Johnson who is dealing with a shoulder injury. Nelson and Johnson are listed as probable as is tackle Demetrius Bell. Despite being healthy once again, Bell will remain on the bench in favor of rookie Chris Hairston at left tackle. Having some depth on the offensive line is something the Bills have been sorely lacking.
In addition to Wilson (neck), kicker Rian Lindell (shoulder) was also ruled out for this weekend's game. He was on the practice field Thursday and Friday which signifies he could be close to a return. Da'Norris Searcy will start in place of Wilson for the second consecutive week while Dave Rayner will substitute for Lindell a week after booting two field goals against the Dolphins.
