ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -Bills safety Donte Whitner missed his second straight practice on Thursday because of the flu, leaving his status uncertain to play in Buffalo's season finale at Philadelphia on Sunday.
Coach Dick Jauron said Whitner, who's head is congested, was feeling ``a little better'' on Thursday and hoped he can practice Friday. Whitner ranks third on the team with 102 tackles in 15 starts this season.
No. 2 receiver Josh Reed also missed his second straight day of practice because of a sore lower back that has bothered him for several weeks. Reed had limited playing time in a 38-21 loss to the New York Giants last weekend, finishing with one catch for 11 yards.
The Bills (7-8) are out of playoff contention.
