Bills Injury Report: Dan Carpenter, Robert Woods, Lee Smith

By on 11/29/2014 01:45:00 PM

The Buffalo Bills expect to be in good health when they host the Cleveland Browns in a critical Week 13 showdown on Sunday.

Running back Fred Jackson was not included on Buffalo's final Week 13 injury report as his groin continues to get healthier. Buffalo expects only three players to be out on Sunday, none of whom are starters.

Wide receiver Robert Woods was limited in practice all week with an ankle injury following the best game of his career last Monday against the New York Jets. Head coach Doug Marrone said he wasn't worried about the injury and expects Woods at full capacity this Sunday.

Kicker Dan Carpenter is also probable after being limited all week with a groin injury. Carpenter was dealing with the injury last week and hit a 53-yard field goal, so he should be fine.

Backup tight end Lee Smith missed Wednesday's practice with an illness but was able to return the next day. Smith's snap count may increase on Sunday, as fellow backup tight end Chris Gragg has been ruled out with a knee injury.

Recently-signed safety Bacarri Rambo is out with a hamstring injury after making his Buffalo debut last Monday. Defensive end Jarius Wynn hasn't practiced since injuring his knee Week 10, leaving the Bills with only three active players at the position.

A number of AFC Wild Card contenders sit at 7-4, making Sunday's game critical for both teams. Buffalo's health could be a factor, but the 6-5 Bills face a daunting schedule.
