Eric Wood expects to play Sunday

By Jay Skurski

Allow me to interrupt the continuing coverage of the Bills' new lease agreement to pass along a few football-related notes.

It looks like the team will have center Eric Wood back on the field Sunday when it takes on the Miami Dolphins. Wood has missed the past two games with a partially torn MCL in his left knee.

"Barring any unforeseen setback, I'll be out there on Sunday," he said following practice today.

"Eric we're going to list as questionable. He did a lot of work again today, but I think we still need to list him there just in case there's a flair up between now and game time," coach Chan Gailey said, adding he was very encouraged by the progress Wood has made.

The Bills ruled defensive end Mark Anderson out. He was active last week against Seattle, but did not play. Anderson has been out since Week Five against San Francisco. Linebacker Chris White (hamstring) and receiver Marcus Easley (hamstring) also were ruled out after missing practice all week.

Wood is the only player listed as questionable. The team lists 11 players as probable. They are: DE Mario Williams (wrist), CB Aaron Williams (knee), RB C.J. Spiller (shoulder), TE Lee Smith (back), DT Marcell Dareus (knee, wrist), FS Jairus Byrd (foot), CB Justin Rogers (foot), LB Nick Barnett (knee), DT Kyle Williams (ankle), G Andy Levitre (knee) and TE Scott Chandler (foot).

The Dolphins ruled receiver Davone Bess (receiver), linebacker Koa Misi (ankle) and K Dan Carpenter (groin) as out.

Cornerback Nolan Carroll (knee), defensive tackle Randy Starks (not injury related), receiver Brian Hartline (back) and tight end Jeron Mastrud (hamstring) are questionable for Sunday.

Five Miami players are probable: S Chris Clemons (neck/ribs), LB Karlos Dansby (biceps), DE Derrick Shelby (groin), S Jimmy Wilson (hip) and WR Armon Binns (ankle).
