The Buffalo Bills will be without wide receiver Zay Jones in the short term.

The rookie second-round pick out of East Carolina suffered a knee injury and is "week to week," according to the team, which held its third organized team activity of the spring Thursday inside the AdPro Sports Training Center.

Rookie quarterback Nathan Peterman also was not in attendance after he is attending the NFL Rookie Premier taking place Thursday through Saturday in Los Angeles. He's expected to be back with the team next week.

Also not practicing Thursday are: wide receiver Sammy Watkins (foot), tight end Blake Annen (neck), offensive tackle Cyrus Kouandjio (hip), wide receiver Kolby Listenbee (sports hernia), left tackle Cordy Glenn (ankle). Center Eric Wood and tight end Charles Clay were given "maintenance" days, according to the team. Fullback Mike Tolbert and linebacker Eddie Yarbrough were also not spotted, although it's unclear if that was injury related. OTAs are voluntary.
