Nick Barnett OK; Seattle DBs dinged

By Mark Gaughan

The Buffalo Bills should have their top linebacker, Nick Barnett, available for Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks. Barnett, who missed practice due to a sore knee, was able to work on Friday.

"He took a lot of reps and he looked fine," coach Chan Gailey said of Barnett. "I think he'll be OK for the game."

Meanwhile, Bills No. 2 receiver Donald Jones is battling a calf injury.

"It's been bothering him off and on," Gailey said. "He was limited. He didn't get any reps today. We've got him as questionable and we'll see. I don't know."

The Seattle cornerbacks are depleted. Seahawk starter Brandon Browner is suspended. His replacement, Walter Thurmond, did not practice Thursday due to a hamstring pull suffered in Wednesday's practice. Backup corner Marcus Trufant hasn't practiced for two days due to a sore hamstring.
