Wide receiver Danny Amendola again was "limited" in practice Friday, according to Rams coach Jeff Fisher, and his presence versus the Bills in Buffalo on Sunday will be a game-time decision. He was listed as questionable on the official injury report.

Amendola suffered an injury to his foot and heel Nov. 18 against the New York Jets. He played in the first half the following week against the Cardinals but missed last week's victory over San Francisco.

"I had a good week relative to the injury," Amendola said, adding that he felt better this week than he did before the Cardinals game.

Despite playing only six full games and portions of two other games and being sidelined by shoulder and foot injuries, Amendola leads the team in receptions, 51, and receiving yards, 576.

Also listed as questionable was linebacker Mario Haggan, who returned to full practice along with center Scott Wells (knee). Wells and running back Steven Jackson (foot) were listed as probable.

Tight end Mike McNeill (thigh) did not practice and was listed as out.

Center Tim Barnes returned to practice. He was excused Thursday for the birth of his daughter, Madeline.

The most earth-shaking news concerned Fisher's pants, which were long for the first time in a practice session. Fisher said he had a soft deadline of Dec. 1 to ditch shorts in favor of sweats or longer workout wear for practices, a holdover from his days as a defensive back with the Chicago Bears.
