Bills wide receiver Robert Woods returned to the practice field Wednesday for the first time since injuring his knee in the team’s game in Cincinnati on November 20.

Woods participated in a limited role, according to head coach Rex Ryan, but gave no indication of what his status may be for this Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fellow wideout Sammy Watkins did not practice Wednesday, but Ryan said he “felt better physically” after Sunday’s game in Oakland than he did after the previous week’s contest against Jacksonville.  The Jaguars game was the first action Watkins had seen after missing eight games recovering from a broken foot.  Ryan indicated Watkins should be ready to play Sunday.  

Wednesdays are often a maintenance/rest day for players who have various ailments they are recovering from.

Also limited were TE Charles Clay (knee) and CB Ronald Darby, who didn’t practice or play last week due to a concussion.  Darby lined up with the starting defense in early pursuit drill during practice.  

Along with Watkins, not practicing were LB Lorenzo Alexander (rest day), LB Lerentee McCray (concussion protocol), and OT Cordy Glenn (back).

QB Tyrod Taylor was a full participant, although still listed as dealing with a groin issue.
