---Strong safety George Wilson is doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Miami Dolphins with a neck injury, although coach Chan Gailey holds out the slight hope that his defensive leader will be able to play.
If Wilson can’t play, either veteran Bryan Scott or rookie Da’Norris Searcy will start at strong safety. Kicker Rian Lindell (shoulder) is out for the game.
Wide receiver Stevie Johnson (shoulder), defensive end Spencer Johnson (calf) and left tackle Demetrius Bell (shoulder) are all questionable but Gailey said they have a “decent chance’’ to play. Bell started the first four games but hasn’t played since injuring his shoulder in the loss at Cincinnati, a span of five games. Chris Hairston started two games at left tackle before suffering a high ankle sprain in the loss to the New York Giants and guard Andy Levitre started the last three games at left tackle. Now that Eric Wood (knee) is out for the season, Levitre will start at center on Sunday.

It’s hard to believe the Dolphins have been installed as a two-point favorite in Sunday’s game against Buffalo. Could anyone have imagined that as recently as two weeks ago, when the Bills were preparing for a pivotal AFC East showdown against the Jets while the Dolphins headed to Kansas City still seeking their first win [...]
Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson did not practice Wednesday due to a shoulder ailment that could keep him out of this weekend's game against the rival Miami Dolphins.Johnson suffered the injury late in last week's thumping at the hands of the Dallas Cowboys.

Two players that haven’t practiced all week are back on the practice field today (Friday).
David Nelson, who missed practice Thursday due to illness is practicing.
Spencer Johnson is back practicing as Chan Gailey indicated he would after missing Wednesday and Thursday with a calf injury.
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.
Buffalo’s defense the past two weeks has surrendered a completion percentage of almost 80 percent (79.6%) as Mark Sanchez and Tony Romo combined to go 43-54 passing. On the season the Bills are giving up a completion percentage of 65.7%. Chan Gailey offered his solutions for getting that figure down closer to the league average.
“You have to do a couple of things,” he said...
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...
