Buffalo Bills coach Doug Marrone said safety Jairus Byrd and guard Doug Legursky both will be listed as questionable for Sunday's game at the New York Jets.

That's an upgrade since last week. Byrd was doubtful heading into the game against Carolina.

Marrone was careful to make clear Byrd's availability is uncertain due to the sore foot that has kept him out the first two games.

"What I don’t want to do is give any misreadings on how it may go," Marrone said. "We all understand it’s a condition that he’s working extremely hard to get better on. And it is getting better. It's always going to be tough for me, because I think it's going to be one of those points where he says I’m ready to go and he’s going to go. So I don’t want to misinterpret where he’s at. … There is progress."

Legursky is coming back from a sprained knee suffered in the exhibition finale three weeks ago. The guess is he's on the doubtful side of questionable.

Meanwhile, rookie place-kicker Dustin Hopkins remains out due to a strained groin. Dan Carpenter will kick for the Bills for a third straight game. Stephon Gilmore, Marquise Goodwin and Ron Brooks remain out.
