Bills | Stevie Johnson misses practice

Buffalo Bills WR Stevie Johnson (back) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 10. He's currently in California due to a death in the family, and head coach Doug Marrone said it'll be a "tough call" as to whether Johnson will suit up in Week 6 against the Cincinnati Bengals. Johnson has played in 53 straight games since he became a starter in 2010. He's not expected to return in time for the team's practice Friday, Oct. 11.

Fantasy Tip: It's conceivable that Johnson will be able to play this weekend, but the fact that he is dealing with an injury and a death in the family and hasn't practiced all week is a major red flag. Plus, his value has dropped now that Thaddeus Lewis is at the helm. Play it safe and bench Johnson if you have the luxury of doing so.
