The Bills are still searching for someone to emerge as the No. 2 receiver to line up opposite Lee Evans, and as of now, undrafted rookie David Nelson is the leading candidate.
Nelson caught five passes for 47 yards and a touchdown in the first preseason game against the Redskins, before suffering an undisclosed injury that sidelined him for the second game against the Colts. Nelson returned to the lineup last week against the Bengals, catching two passes for 34 yards and another touchdown.
Former second round draft pick James Hardy found the field for the first time this preseason after battling a leg injury, and caught a 30 yard pass, but dropped another. Hardy is on the roster bubble as of now, and needs a strong outing against the Lions if he wants to continue as a Buffalo Bill.
Stevie Johnson, who was expected by many to emerge as the clear No. 2 hasn't done much of anything thus far, catching just three passes for 28 yards.
Chad Jackson was a former second round draft pick brought in this offseason, and had an impact against the Colts while Brian Brohm was under center, catching five passes for 52 yards, but has only caught one pass for four yards in the other two games.
Roscoe Parrish is a clear slot receiver, and found the endzone last week, but isn't really a No. 2 option. If someone steps up this week, the job could be easily theirs.
