Moulds doubtful because of groin strain

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Bills receiver Eric Moulds has a strained groin and is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Jets.

Coach Gregg Williams wouldn't put a timetable on Moulds' recovery Wednesday.

Moulds was hurt during the winning drive in Buffalo's 22-16 overtime win against Cincinnati last weekend. After coming down with a catch, Moulds was tackled by Kevin Kaesviharn and tumbled awkwardly along the sideline.

The Bills (3-2) hardly can afford to lose Moulds, second in the AFC with 457 yards receiving. Last season, he set a franchise record with 100 catches and finished fourth in the NFL with 1,292 yards receiving.

Other Buffalo receivers have struggled, particularly Josh Reed, who has dropped several easy passes.

Without Moulds, the Bills would have to elevate two untested rookies: undrafted free agent Clarence Coleman, fourth-round pick Sam Aiken. Coleman doesn't have a catch this season, Aiken has been inactive.
