With Robert Woods already declared out and Stevie Johnson pretty iffy going into Sunday’s game with a groin injury, Bills head coach Doug Marrone is going to be a bit shorthanded at receiver against the Jets this weekend. When asked if he intends to elevate a receiver from the practice squad, Marrone indicated that would not a consideration this week.
“We talked about that, but no we’re not going to go in that direction,” said Marrone. “Obviously T.J. and Marquise have played quite a bit. We have Hogan. Easley played last week, and has done a nice job and played in the preseason. We have three tight ends now that have been active. We have two fullbacks that are active and one of them can run well. We have other options to turn to.”
Buffalo’s offense began to incorporate rookie TE Chris Gragg in the passing game and may give some time to recently signed H-back Evan Rodriguez.
Another option could be C.J. Spiller, who has been used at receiver in the past when injury has struck the position.
