ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -Cornerback Terrence McGee, who wore a brace on his left knee and walked with a noticeable limp, was one of three Buffalo Bills defensive starters to miss practice Wednesday as the team prepared to play at Arizona this weekend.
Coach Dick Jauron wouldn't rule McGee out, saying he will continue to have his sprained knee tested through the end of the week. McGee said the knee was still sore, but had improved since Monday, when he had difficulty walking.
``I haven't given up hope yet,'' McGee said. ``I'm really not too sure. I'm just trying to see from day to day.''
Also missing practice were defensive tackle Marcus Stroud (left shoulder) and defensive end Aaron Schobel (foot). They were hurt in last weekend's 31-14 win at St. Louis, but both finished the game.
Jauron anticipated Stroud and Schobel returning to practice on Thursday.
The AFC East-leading Bills (4-0) have a chance to open a season with five wins for only the fourth time in franchise history, and first time since 1991.
McGee's injury is considered the most serious after the starting cornerback was hurt early in the first quarter against the Rams, when his leg was caught in the pile while making a tackle.
If McGee can't play, the Bills would have nickelback Ashton Youboty and rookie first-round draft pick Leodis McKelvin split time opposite starter Jabari Greer against the Cardinals. Arizona (2-2) is coming off a 56-35 loss at the New York Jets. Kurt Warner had an NFL-season high 472 yards passing with two touchdowns and three interceptions.
By not playing, McGee would get additional time to recuperate as the Bills are off next week until hosting San Diego on Oct. 19.
