Stevie Johnson is concerned about his injured left shoulder, leaving the top Buffalo Bills receiver's status uncertain to play at Miami this weekend. Speaking before practice Wednesday, Johnson says he's getting daily treatment, but adds he's not 100 percent confident his shoulder will be strong enough. Johnson was hurt in the fourth quarter of a 44-7 loss at Dallas last weekend when he was attempting to make a catch over the middle before being hit by cornerback Terence Newman. Coach Chan Gailey says Johnson will be held out of practice Wednesday, and hopes the receiver can work on a limited basis over the next two days. Johnson has four touchdowns and leads the Bills (5-4) with 44 catches and 531 yards.

Coach Chan Gailey: Third-down struggles have been killing the Bills

It’s hard to believe the Dolphins have been installed as a two-point favorite in Sunday’s game against Buffalo.

A couple of roles for Moore

Buffalo’s newest DL Kyle Moore is not going to be exclusively a defensive lineman for the Bills.

Bills leading receiver Johnson limited in practice

Buffalo's Stevie Johnson has returned to practice on a limited basis, though coach Chan Gailey says it's too early to determine whether the leading receiver's injured left shoulder will be healed in time to play at Miami on Sunday.

Smith’s full game still on hold

The Bills addition of Brad Smith in free agency was anticipated to be one of intriguing versatility. A weapon to be used in many areas, but from the day he was signed head coach Chan Gailey warned that without a full offseason to evaluate and implement his talents into the playbook, using Smith to his full potential would prove difficult this season. “We don’t know all of what...

Stevie iffy for Miami game

Neither Bills receiver Stevie Johnson or safety George Wilson will practice today as a result of injuries they suffered in the team's loss at Dallas Sunday. Johnson suffered an injury to his shoulder area late in the game. He said he's hopeful of playing but was far from making guarantees. "We’ll see what happens when we make it to Sunday. ... I’m definitely...

Nesbitt update

Bills DB Josh Nesbitt, who was elevated to the active roster Tuesday, will have his playing status for Sunday riding on George Wilson’s health.
