ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) Buffalo Bills wide receiver Marquise Goodwin has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings with a hamstring injury.

Goodwin suffered the injury in practice Thursday.

Injuries have been a problem for the second-year pro since his rookie season. Goodwin has one catch, a 42-yard touchdown in Week 5 against Detroit.

Goodwin's injury means Mike Williams will likely return to the lineup. Williams was a surprise inactive against New England on Sunday, and his agent Hadley Engelhard was granted permission to seek a trade after the game. Williams, a Buffalo native, has since maintained he wants to stay with the Bills.

Receiver Marcus Easley (knee) is also out, giving the Bills only four healthy receivers.

Linebacker Ty Powell (ankle) is also out. Defensive tackle Kyle Williams (knee), safety Da'Norris Searcy (knee), linebacker Brandon Spikes (knee), safety Aaron Williams (wrist, neck) and long snapper Garrison Sanborn (knee) were limited at practice this week but are all listed as probable.
