Bills likely to insert Kraig Urbik into starting lineup at guard
"He’s got to be ready to step up and go," Marrone said of Urbik. "If he gets the call on Sunday I’m sure he’ll be ready to go."
The Bills have surrendered 13 sacks in their last three games, and the line faces a tough test against the Jets in Week 8.
Rams S T.J. McDonald (concussion) misses practice Wednesday
Jets LB Quinton Coples expects bigger role in Week 8
"It's back to what it was before Thursday," Coples said after practice Wednesday. "I'll be getting a lot more reps, and back out there a lot more than I was this past Thursday."
When asked if Coples would return to a starting role, coach Rex Ryan said, "Sure, why not?" before adding, "We play our players. We play all our guys."
Coples has recorded just five tackles and one sack in seven games this season.
Bills WR Marcus Easley returns to practice Wednesday
Easley has missed the last four weeks while recovering from a sprained MCL. If he's healthy enough to play Sunday, his presence on special teams could help counter the loss of Anthony Dixon on the unit, as he's expected to fill a much bigger offensive role in the wake of multiple injuries to the team's running backs.
Cordarrelle Patterson no longer on injury report

49ers WR Steve Johnson making most of limited snaps
Despite his success, Johnson might have a hard time earning more time because Michael Crabtree and Anquan Boldin are locked in as starters and Brandon Lloyd is a deep threat coaches want to get on the field, the paper said.
For now, the paper envisions Johnson continuing to split No. 3 receiver duties with Lloyd, who has played 38 percent of the snaps.
Rams WR Kenny Britt a non-participant Wednesday
Bears CB Kyle Fuller up in the air for Sunday

Colts have confidence in Hakeem Nicks if Reggie Wayne is sidelined
If Reggie Wayne is unable to play Week 8 against the Steelers due to an elbow injury,
"He comes here every day with his hat on, lunch pail, ready to work," Pagano said about Nicks, per ESPN. "He’s a competitive guy. We have a ton of competitive guys in that locker room. They all want to contribute and they all want to make plays. He understands that. He’ll be ready no matter when his number is called. He knows his stuff; he practices hard, prepares hard."
Nicks has posted modest numbers in his first season with the Colts, totaling 17 catches for 141 yards and two touchdowns in seven games.
