The Buffalo Bills had three players sit out of Wednesday practice ahead of Week 2.
The Buffalo Bills were back on the practice field for the first time after their 27-17 win over the New York Jets. There were a few players who suffered injuries that were going to need to be closely monitored to determine their availability for this Sunday’s game against the Miami Dolphins.
The two players that fans were most concerned about were linebackers Matt Milano and Tremaine Edmunds. Milano left the game in the first half due to a hamstring injury and Edmunds hurt his shoulder in the third quarter and didn’t return.
On Monday, Sean McDermott didn’t know the severity but described them both as “day-to-day”. While the injury didn’t seem to be too concerning for the Bills head coach it wasn’t surprising to see that both did not practice on Wednesday. The Buffalo Bills will probably be extra cautious and try to do everything they can to make sure both are on the field against the Dolphins if they are able to go.
The Buffalo Bills had two other linebackers suffer injuries in Week 1 as backup Tyrel Dodson suffered a neck injury and Del’Shawn Phillips had a quad injury. Phillips joined Milano and Edmunds on the sideline while Dodson was able to be a limited participant.
If the Bills are without Edmunds or Milano then A.J. Klein and Tyrel Dodson should see an increase in playing time.
A surprise on the injury report was wide receiver John Brown, who did not practice due to a foot injury. He is coming off a great game against the Jets after he recorded six receptions for 70 yards and one touchdown.
If John Brown is forced to miss any time this presents a great opportunity for Gabriel Davis to see extended playing time.
