Here are the latest injury updates for Week 2 in the AFC East:

Buffalo Bills

With tailback Fred Jackson definitely out, the biggest name to watch this week is defensive tackle Marcell Dareus. His brother was shot and killed earlier this week, but Dareus returned to practice Thursday and expects to play. Rookie receiver T.J. Graham will replace the injured David Nelson (knee), who went on injured reserve.

Miami Dolphins

Backup running back Daniel Thomas suffered a concussion and could miss Sunday's game. He's been held out of practice for two straight days. That means rookie Lamar Miller could spell Reggie Bush against the Oakland Raiders. Dolphins defensive tackle Tony McDaniel (knee) also has missed practices Wednesday and Thursday. Receiver Anthony Armstrong was added to the injury report with a hamstring injury.

New England Patriots

Backup tailback Shane Vereen returned to practice this week on a limited basis. He could provide depth and explosiveness in New England’s backfield. Starting guard Dan Connolly's status also is in question after suffering a head injury. Connolly practiced on a limited basis Thursday but sat out Wednesday's practice.

New York Jets

The biggest injury name to watch is Jets Pro Bowl cornerback Darrelle Revis (concussion), who did not practice for the second straight day. New York head coach Rex Ryan said Thursday the team probably won’t determine Revis’ playing status until Saturday. So he is pretty much a game-time decision. Tight end Dustin Keller (hamstring) and safety LaRon Landry (heel) both sat out Thursday but are just managing injuries. Defensive tackle Sione Pouha is practicing and looks like a go after missing Week 1.
