ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) - Buffalo Bills rookie receiver Zay Jones is listed week to week after spraining his knee during a recent practice.

The team provided the update on Thursday, when the Bills closed a three-day voluntary minicamp. The Bills didn't say when the injury occurred or which knee Jones hurt.

The injury presents a slight setback for a team overhauling its group of receivers. Jones was a second-round pick out of East Carolina and being counted upon to compete for the No. 2 receiver job opposite starter Sammy Watkins.

Watkins also isn't practicing because he's still recovering from surgery in January to repair a broken left foot.
