Running back Marshawn Lynch did not practice for a third straight day Friday and is almost surely out for Sunday's game against New England. The Bills officially listed him as doubtful for the game. However, he still is wearing a protective boot on his severely sprained ankle and has watched practice all week.
Bills tight end Robert Royal (concussion) practiced fully Friday and is expected to play.
Patriots starting free safety Eugene Wilson (ankle) did not practice all week and is listed as questionable.
The Bills will accept donations of new winter clothing items and cash at all stadium gates Sunday as part of the annual Gift of Warmth drive to support the Salvation Army.
