ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Buffalo Bills defensive back Aaron Williams was limited in Tuesday's practice but said he will be ready to play Thursday night against the Cleveland Browns.

Williams did not finish Sunday's win over the Baltimore Ravens with a lower back injury and worked with the strength and conditioning staff during the early portion of Tuesday's practice.

"I'll be ready to go," he said.

Williams, who returned to cornerback in the wake of Leodis McKelvin's injury, did not take part in the defensive backs' walk-through early in Tuesday's practice. In his place, the Bills had Justin Rogers, Nickell Robey and Brandon Burton lined up at cornerback.

The Bills also upgraded kicker Dustin Hopkins and receiver Marquise Goodwin to limited participation in Tuesday's practice. However, head coach Doug Marrone said Hopkins will not play Thursday, while he cautioned that Goodwin has only caught passes on his fractured hands for two days.
