Stevie Johnson, Stephon Gilmore game-time decisions for Buffalo

Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson missed the entire week of practice while he was away in California attending to a death in the family and that’s left him questionable to play against the Bengals this Sunday.

Johnson, who left last Thursday’s loss to Cleveland early with a back injury, won’t return to Buffalo until Friday night and has been keeping up with the game plan via iPad, but coach Doug Marrone said that the team won’t have much of a sense about Johnson’s readiness to play until he meets with the training staff.

“We’ve been working with Stevie during the week and talking to him to see how he’s feeling both physically and mentally,” Marrone said, via the team’s website. “We just have to get him here face to face so our doctors can look at him and I can sit down with him and see where he’s at from a mental standpoint.”

Marrone said that cornerback Stephon Gilmore, out since the preseason with a broken wrist, is also going to be a game-time decision for the team on Sunday. Marrone said it was a question of pain tolerance for Gilmore, who is wearing protective material on his left wrist that restricts use of his hand.

Running back C.J. Spiller is also questionable for the Bills, although the expectation is that Spiller will be on the field against Cincinnati.

    Only one truly great receiver will ever be named Johnson.

    Just ask Chad Ochocinco.

    I hope they all play. Would be a good matchup Bengals vs Bills with Gilmore, Stevie and Byrd lineup…. even with a garbage QB
