AFC East injury updates

Here is the latest injury updates for Week 11 in the AFC East:

Buffalo Bills: The Bills finally got some good news this week on the injury front, as top receiver Steve Johnson (shoulder) returned to practice Thursday on a limited basis. Buffalo's struggling offense really needs Johnson in Sunday's game against Miami. Buffalo linebacker Chris Kelsay (calf) again had a limited practice and looks primed to return. Safety George Wilson (neck) and receiver David Nelson (illness, ankle) both missed practice for the second straight day.

Miami Dolphins: The Dolphins remain healthy late in the season. Starting tight end Anthony Fasano (ankle) was the only player limited in practice. But he's on pace to play Sunday. Cornerback Nolan Carroll has a hamstring injury but had full participation.

New England Patriots: For New England, the big injury is top cornerback Devin McCourty, who didn't practice with a shoulder injury. The Patriots had 14 players who were limited. It was mostly the usual suspects from last week. But Wes Welker was limited with a knee injury that appears to be a new ailment for New England's leading receiver.
