The Buffalo Bills are as close to fully healthy as a team can be.
Wide receiver Steve Johnson is the lone player listed as questionable on today's injury report. The only other names are quarterback/receiver Brad Smith and right guard Kraig Urbik as probable.
All 53 players on the active roster and eight practice-squad members were on the field for today's practice. Everybody is expected to be available for Sunday's season opener against the New York Jets.
I asked Bills coach Chan Gailey if he could remember having all 61 members of his active roster and taxi squad available before.
"No, I can't," Gailey said. "That's a good point. I can't remember.
"It's great to have that. It's what you want."
Johnson's groin injury reportedly made a nice rebound after sitting out Thursday's practice. He was able to participate in everything the Bills asked him to do, but he officially was listed as limited because he didn't take part in all of the team reps.
"I did everything," Johnson said. "I was out there, running routes and full-go with the guys.
"I think Coach made the right call along with the guys in the training room of sitting me. I guess it will only get better from here. I still have a couple days until game day."
Gailey's policy is to give only injury updates on Fridays, but in speaking about the groin injury that kept Smith out of Wednesday's practice, Gailey made a point to say "We were able to time up our Wildcat."
Something for the Jets to think about.
