Bills' Johnson questionable to face Patriots

The Buffalo Bills have listed wide receiver Stevie Johnson questionable for Sunday's game at New England due to a thigh bruise the team's top target sustained last week.

Johnson was hurt during the first half of last Sunday's 21-9 loss at Houston after taking a shot to his upper leg by a Texans defender. He did return to the game, however, and was able to put in limited practices on both Thursday and Friday.

Defensive tackle Kyle Williams (ankle), right guard Kraig Urbik (foot) and defensive linemen Shawne Merriman (chest) and Spencer Johnson (ankle) also were limited on Friday and have been termed questionable. Defensive end Chris Kelsay, who injured his neck in Thursday's practice, sat out Friday's session and is questionable as well.

The Bills had previously ruled out starting cornerback Aaron Williams and defensive end Mark Anderson for the contest. Williams sprained his knee against the Texans, while Anderson is still recovering from a knee procedure performed last month.

Buffalo also placed cornerback Terrence McGee (knee) and right offensive tackle Erik Pears (hip) on injured reserve earlier in the week.
