Bills list over one-third of roster on Friday's injury report

By Tim Graham

The Buffalo Bills' injury report is about as thick as the phone book these days.

Ever since the NFL fined the club $20,000 for failing to list Mario Williams' wrist injury, the same one that required surgery last week, the Bills have been listing every bump and bruise.

Three players were added to today's injury report, but all of them practiced fully and are listed as probable. That brings the number of probable Bills to 15 -- or 28.3 percent of the roster -- for Sunday's game against the Houston Texans in Reliant Stadium.

Houston was equally liberal on its injury report with 15 probable players. Only one is listed as questionable, doubtful or out. Running back Ben Tate will not play.

Only six Bills are questionable or worse.

Offensive lineman Chad Rinehart (ankle) and defensive end Mark Anderson (knee) are out. Right tackle Erik Pears (hip) and cornerback Terrence McGee (knee) are doubtful. Left tackle Cordy Glenn (ankle) and defensive tackle Kyle Williams (ankle) are questionable.
