Two limited practice sessions sandwiching a Thursday off apparently will not keep Buffalo Bills wide receiver Robert Woods off the field on Sunday: he's listed as probable for a Week 3 tilt against the San Diego Chargers.
Woods, who rolled his ankle in Wednesday's practice, is among five Bills players with the probable designation. He's joined there by fellow starting receiver Sammy Watkins (ribs), tight end Lee Smith (toe), starting left guard Chris Williams (back), and reserve defensive tackle Stefan Charles (hip).
The news is not so rosy for the Bills at linebacker, where starter Keith Rivers is doubtful to play with a groin injury; he missed last week's win over Miami, and did not even practice on Friday. Meanwhile, rookie reserve Randell Johnson, who has quickly emerged as one of the team's most-used players on special teams, has been ruled out with a knee injury; street free agent signing Larry Dean could assume his role on teams work.
Meanwhile, on the Chargers' side of the field, top pass rusher Melvin Ingram has been ruled out with hamstring and hip issues; Dwight Freeney and rookie Jerry Attaochu (if he plays; he's questionable with a hamstring injury) will see the most work rushing EJ Manuel this weekend. Top wideout Keenan Allen (groin) is also questionable.
