Joique Bell (concussion) is out along with Joe Fauria (ankle), running back Theo Riddick (hamstring) and LB Travis Lewis (quad).
Cornerback Cassius Vaughn (ankle) is doubtful after limited practice.
Right tackle LaAdrian Waddle has had full practices all week and is probable Sunday for the first time since he injured his calf in the opening game.
