The Bills have 8 players listed on their injury report. Of those 8, 2 of them are out for the game. Marcus Easley and Chris Williams have been ruled out for the game.
Two of the remaining six are doubtful for the game. Both of these players left last weeks game early due to knee injuries. Nigel Bradham and Kyle Williams will be missed this week if they are unable to go at game time.
The remaining 4 players are all listed as being probable for the game today. Sammy Watkins, Ron Brooks, Randall Johnson and Marquise Goodwin are all listed as being probably for the game.

The Lions have 11 players listed on their report. Of those 11, 4 of them are out for the game against the Bills. Joique Bell, Theo Riddick, Joseph Fauria, and Travis Lewis. The Lions do not have the greatest running game so having their two top backs out should key the Bills to Stafford for most of the game. Lets see if the Bills passing defense can stand up to the challenge.
The Lions have 1 doubful and 1 questionable player for this game. Cassius Vaughn is listed as being doubtful for the game and Calvin Johnson is listed as questionable. Johnson has been listed as being questionable the entire week and didn’t practice until Friday. He will most likely be used as a decoy with his ankle injury limiting him.
