AFC East Week 3 injury report

By James Walker

Here are the final Week 3 injury reports in the AFC East:

New England Patriots (2-0) at Buffalo Bills (2-0)

Patriots

Out: OL Sebastian Vollmer (back), TE Aaron Hernandez (knee), DL Mike Wright (concussion)

Questionable: CB Ras-I Dowling (hip), S Patrick Chung (thumb), LB Gary Guyton (hamstring), DL Albert Haynesworth (back), LB Jerod Mayo (thigh), P Zoltan Mesko (knee), WR Taylor Price (hamstring), OL Ryan Wendell (calf)

Probable: CB Kyle Arrington (concussion), S Josh Barrett (thumb), CB Leigh Bodden (hand), LB Dane Fletcher (thumb)

Bills

Out: LB Kirk Morrison (hamstring), CB Terrence McGee (hamstring), G Kraig Urbik (knee)

Probable: WR Stevie Johnson (groin), DE Spencer Johnson (hip), DT Torell Troup (back)

Skinny: Stevie Johnson's "probable" status is good news for Buffalo. The Bills have to keep pace with New England’s offense and would have a tough time doing it without Buffalo’s No. 1 receiver. The Patriots have a lot of players questionable. But secondary players like Chung and Dowling are much needed to defend Buffalo's spread offense.

Miami Dolphins (0-2) at Cleveland Browns (1-1)

Dolphins

Out: CB Vontae Davis (hamstring), DL Tony McDaniel (hand)

Doubtful: WR Roberto Wallace (hamstring)

Questionable: CB Will Allen (hamstring), S Chris Clemons (hamstring)

Probable: RB Reggie Bush (groin), LB Karlos Dansby (groin), WR Brandon Marshall (groin)

Browns

Out: LB Titus Brown (ankle), DB Eric Hagg (knee)

Questionable: WR Josh Cribbs (groin), RB Peyton Hillis (illness), OL Tony Pashos (ankle), WR Mohamed Massaquoi (ankle)

Probable: LB Marcus Benard (non-injury), WR Carlton Mitchell (finger), DL Scott Paxson (shoulder)

Skinny: Davis is obviously the big loss for Miami. But the Dolphins did get a boost with Dansby's availability. Browns coach Pat Shurmur expects Hillis to play through his illness. But if Hillis isn't 100 percent, that would be an advantage for Miami.

New York Jets (2-0) at Oakland Raiders (1-1)

Jets

Out: C Nick Mangold (ankle), WR Logan Payne (wrist), G Robert Turner (ankle)

Questionable: DE Muhammad Wilkerson (shoulder)

Probable: DT Mike DeVito (shoulder), DT Marcus Dixon (knee), LB David Harris (toe), WR Santonio Holmes (quadricep), S Jim Leonhard (hamstring), WR Derrick Mason (knee), QB Mark Sanchez (right elbow), S Eric Smith (ankle)

Raiders

Out: WR Jacoby Ford (hamstring), S Mike Mitchell (knee), WR Louis Murphy (groin)

Questionable: CB DeMarcus Van Dyke (knee)

Probable: TE Kevin Boss (knee), S Jerome Boyd (knee), QB Jason Campbell (foot), WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (knee), K Sebastian Janikowski (left foot), CB Chris Johnson (groin), RB Darren McFadden (shoulder)

Skinny: No surprise with Mangold, despite his best intentions to return from a high-ankle sprain. That injury takes time to heal. Wilkerson, the Jets' rookie defensive end, is questionable but expects to play. The Raiders are going in shorthanded at receiver for the second straight game. But it didn't seem to both them last week against Buffalo.
