Injury report: Spiller, Lawson likely to sit


While the Buffalo Bills' injury report continues to shrink, the amount of impact players that are inactive (or likely to be) seems to stay the same.

This week it's running back C.J. Spiller and linebacker Manny Lawson, each officially listed as doubtful for Sunday's battle against the New Orleans Saints.

With Spiller likely out, Buffalo has promoted running back Ronnie Wingo to the active roster to add some depth to the banged up squad, while Jerry Hughes and Nigel Bradham will be in line to pick up the slack for Lawson.

Quarterback E.J. Manuel is still a no-go, with quarterback Thad Lewis still the starter and Jeff Tuel the backup over Matt Flynn.

New Orleans isn't without its own injury woes, as the team is down three defensive players and may lose its most productive offensive weapon, tight end Jimmy Graham. Graham is officially listed as questionable after a limited practice Friday, his first of the week.

Also questionable is defensive end Cam Jordan, who leads the team in sacks with five. Likely back in action is wide receiver Lance Moore, who has missed the last three weeks with a hand injury.

Here's the full slate of injuries for both teams:


QB E.J. Manuel (knee).

LB Manny Lawson (hamstring), RB C.J. Spiller (ankle).

RB Fred Jackson (knee), DT Kyle Williams (achilles).


S Roman Harper (knee), CB Rod Sweeting (hip), DE Tyrunn Walker (knee).

TE Jimmy Graham (foot), RB Mark Ingram (toe), DE Cam Jordan (ankle), T Zach Strief (ankle).

S Malcolm Jenkins (back), WR Lance Moore (hand).
