Bills upgrade five on practice report

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Wide receiver Steve Johnson was among five Buffalo Bills players upgraded Thursday to being limited participants in practice.

Johnson, cornerback Leodis McKelvin, defensive linemen Kyle Williams and Mario Williams and guard Kraig Urbik all were limited in Thursday's session after not practicing Wednesday.

Still, the Bills had four players who did not practice Thursday. With seven inactive spots for Sunday's game against the Baltimore Ravens, the Bills will be short-handed if any more than three of the limited players cannot play.

However, head coach Doug Marrone said Thursday the coaching staff hasn't discussed the possibility of not having a fully healthy 46-man roster.

"We feel good about where we are, going into the game," he said.

CB Ron Brooks (foot)
