Bills WR Marquise Goodwin out vs. Vikings

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Marquise Goodwin has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings with a hamstring injury.

Goodwin suffered the injury in practice Thursday.

Injuries have been a problem for the second-year pro since his rookie season. Goodwin has one catch, a 42-yard touchdown in Week 5 against Detroit.

Goodwin's injury means Mike Williams will likely return to the lineup. Williams was a surprise inactive against New England on Sunday, and his agent Hadley Engelhard was granted permission to seek a trade after the game. Williams, a Buffalo native, has since maintained he wants to stay with the Bills.

Receiver Marcus Easley (knee) is also out, giving the Bills only four healthy receivers.
