As if he did not have a daunting enough tasking facing the New York Jets defense this weekend, rookie Buffalo Bills quarterback E.J. Manuel may be without his two best receivers when his team takes the field Sunday. Both WRs Stevie Johnson and Robert Woods missed practice again on Wednesday and head coach Doug Marrone confirmed that Woods will definitely be out for the game against the Jets according to Tim Graham of the Buffalo News.
Johnson has battled groin and hip issues for much of this season and has admitted he doesn't know if he'll be able to suit up against the Jets Sunday. Woods has an ankle injury and it would make a lot of sense for both players to sit out this week with the team's bye week coming up in Week 12. It is not as if the Bills are majorly contending for a playoff spot at this point in the season. That would leave E.J. Manuel with T.J. Graham, Marquise Goodwin and Chris Hogan as "weapons."
