Buffalo Bills coach Doug Marrone already has declared rookie receiver Robert Woods' injured ankle unprepared for Sunday's game against the New York Jets in Ralph Wilson Stadium.

The status for leading receiver Stevie Johnson is uncertain. Johnson suffered another groin injury three days ago against the Pittsburgh Steelers and did not practice today.

"Stevie's working hard on the rehabilitation," Marrone said. "He wants to see how it feels later on, and then he's going to see how it feels to go."

The only two other Bills on today's injury report were defensive tackle Kyle Williams with his usual Achilles rest day and safety Da'Norris Searcy with a hamstring issue. Neither practiced today but are expected to be on the field Thursday.

The Jets listed three players as not practicing: receiver Jeremy Kerley (elbow), defensive end Leger Douzable (illness) and linebacker Garrett McIntyre (knee).
