ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Buffalo Bills linebacker Manny Lawson missed his second consecutive practice Thursday after suffering a setback in his recovery from a hamstring injury.

"We really felt good yesterday," head coach Doug Marrone said. "Then we had a setback. So it's going to be a day-to-day thing. That's not the best of news."

Marrone wasn't ready to rule out Lawson for Sunday's game in New Orleans, saying that Lawson, as a veteran, may have more leeway on whether he plays after not practicing.

"He's missed two days of practice," Marrone said. "But Manny's smart and he's a veteran guy. So that's why it'll be day-to-day."

Lawson, in his eighth season, has started the first seven games, recording 40 tackles, a sack, and a forced fumble.

The following is the Bills' full Thursday injury report:
