Bills RB Fred Jackson is questionable. He's indicated he's going to play, but with the game now Monday night he becomes a bit more risky. It's not a great matchup against the Jets rush defense, but either way owners will need to be prepared just in case Jackson doesn't go. Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown would at least be serviceable backups if needed. Also for the Bills, Watkins and Orton are probable.

“Luckily for me, the system is pretty much stuff I’ve learned from college to my first year in the NFL,” Graham said after today's practice at the Atlantic Health Jets Training Center. “There’s a lot of carryover so I’m just trying to put routes with verbiage that I know and getting the timing down with Geno.”
Even with Decker and Nelson questionable for this week, Graham may not be active against the Chargers. But he seems to be picking up the system well and the team likes what they've seen of him, cutting 4th round draft pick Jalen Saunders to sign him. Given the struggles of the Jets WRs, it's at least worth nothing.

The slumping New York Jets have made a surprise move in the aftermath of their third straight loss.

One of the more notable wide receivers released on Saturday has quickly found a new home.
A 2012 third-round pick out of N.C. State, the 25-year-old Graham was a 17-game starter for Buffalo in his two seasons with the club, hauling in 23 passes for 361 yards and two touchdowns in 2013. He will provide depth behind Nate Washington and Kendall Wright and could contribute immediately in three- and four-WR sets.

After starting 17 games over his first two seasons, Bills WR T.J. Graham is squarely on the bubble this training camp. After missing all of OTAs following offseason surgery, Graham's performance in camp has been shaky. He's had more than a handful of drops. The Bills have used Graham mostly as a speed threat -- both in the screen and deep game -- but he'll need to prove himself as more than that to crack the roster.

The Bills have used a variety of receiver groupings through the first eight practices. Mike Williams, Chris Hogan, and Marquise Goodwin have all seen time alongside Sammy Watkins and Robert Woods. How each of those players are used in the regular season could be determined by the situation. T.J. Graham, who we considered part of this mix in the spring, has barely seen any time with the first-team offense. He's fighting for his job.
It appears that Woods is safe as the team's WR2, while Williams is battling for snaps. Hogan is the more traditional slot receiver.
Bills WR Mike Williams didn't stand out in OTAs and seeing him in action, there isn't a particular skill that he brings to the table that is different from the rest of the receiver group. If Sammy Watkins and Robert Woods become fixtures on the outside and Chris Hogan can continue to contribute in the slot, Williams starts to slide down the depth chart. The Bills will keep Marquise Goodwin and Marcus Easley on their final roster, so Williams will have to fight Hogan and T.J. Graham for the final spot.
It sounds as if Watkins and Woods are penciled in to start for the Bills with Williams at best the WR3/WR4.

Bills WRs Steve Johnson (groin, out) and Robert Woods (ankle, out) missed practice all week and are out for Week 11. Look for Marquise Goodwin and T.J. Graham to start. We prefer Goodwin, who has three 50+ yard games and a pair of touchdowns this season. The Jets are a nice matchup for WRs, though high winds are a concern this week.
Robert Woods is also out, so this is an opportunity for Marquise Goodwin and T.J. Graham to see starter's snaps and targets. They are both Sneaky Starts for Week 11 against a Jets defense that is #26 in WR aFPA. Goodwin has cracked the 50-yard mark three times this season and has scored two TDs. TE Scott Chandler should also see a bump in targets.

Bills WR Steve Johnson (groin) missed practice again Thursday. Robert Woods (ankle) missed practice again Thursday and is out for Week 11. HC Doug Marrone said that he doesn't feel good about Johnson's chances of playing. Johnson looks very iffy and Woods won't play this week. If both are out, look for Marquise Goodwin and T.J. Graham to start. The Jets are a nice matchup for WRs.

Bills WR Steve Johnson (groin) did not practice Wednesday. Robert Woods (ankle) did not practice Wednesday. Johnson looks very iffy for Week 11 and Woods won't play this week. If he and Johnson are both out, look for Marquise Goodwin and T.J. Graham to start. The Jets are a nice matchup for WRs.

Bills head coach Doug Marrone said they have a decision to make on WR Robert Woods, whose ankle injury is a high ankle sprain.
Marrone confirmed it’s a high ankle sprain, and that the ankle is still swollen.
The Bills head coach admitted that Woods has been an important part of the team’s offense this season. Though he hasn’t made a final decision on Woods’ status for Sunday, but said he’s leaning toward sitting him.
Stevie Johnson may also not play this week leaving the Bills with an awfully slim receiving group of: Marquise Goodwin, T.J. Graham, Chris Hogan and Marcus Easley, who all saw action in Week 10, but combined totaled just six catches. TEs Scott Chandler and Chris Gragg combined for seven catches for 46 yards and a TD. E.J. Manuel's value would also take a hit.
