ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson (groin) did not practice Thursday and may not play in Sunday's game against the New York Jets.

"Stevie has missed two days," coach Doug Marrone said. "I don't feel as good about him being able to play, but I can't officially rule him out just yet."

Rookie receiver Robert Woods (ankle) has already been ruled out for Sunday's game, so if Johnson is unable to play, the Bills will be without their top two receivers.

If Johnson can't go, the Bills will turn to T.J. Graham and Marquise Goodwin as their top two options. Marrone said Thursday the Bills won't sign either of their two receivers on the practice squad.

Meanwhile, safety Da'Norris Searcy returned to practice Thursday and is expected to play Sunday.

"Searcy looked good," Marrone said. "No issues there, and unless he has a setback during the week, he should be in good shape."
