Bills' Johnson, Gilmore questionable for Sunday

The Sports NetworkOctober 11, 2013 

Orchard Park, NY ( - Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson, defensive back Stephon Gilmore and running back C.J. Spiller are all listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Johnson, who left last Thursday's loss to Cleveland early with a back injury, has been away from the team this week attending to a death in the family. He has 20 catches for 254 yards and two touchdowns this season.

Gilmore has yet to play this season due to a broken wrist. He was limited in practice all week. Spiller was also limited in practice all week with an ankle injury.

Rookie quarterback EJ Manuel (knee), defensive back Ron Brooks (foot) and rookie kicker Dustin Hopkins (right groin) have been ruled out.

Manuel, of course, is expected to miss a few weeks with an LCL sprain. Thaddeus Lewis will get the start on Sunday.
