The Bills could again be without star free safety Jairus Byrd in Week Two.
Byrd, who has plantar fasciitis in his feet, is doubtful for Sunday’s game vs. Carolina, Bills head coach Doug Marrone said Friday, according to the club’s official Twitter feed.
Byrd participated in practice on a limited basis on Wednesday and Thursday.
Da’Norris Searcy started in place of Byrd in Week One and returned a fumble for a 74-yard touchdown in the Bills’ loss to New England.
Byrd, 26, has intercepted 18 passes since entering the NFL in 2009. He is playing the 2013 season under the franchise tag, and his future in Buffalo has been much speculated upon.
