Buffalo Bills: Injury report from Wednesday’s practice ahead of Colts game
The Buffalo Bills had two wide receivers sit out practice on Wednesday.
The Buffalo Bills are preparing for their first home playoff game since 1996 and will be facing the Indianapolis Colts on Saturday. On Wednesday, the team had two starting wide receivers miss practice.
The first player is Cole Beasley, who suffered a knee injury against the New England Patriots, and missed last week’s game against the Miami Dolphins. Head coach Sean McDermott described the injury as week-to-week after it occurred and the fact he hasn’t been able to practice yet this week, is not a good sign for his availability this weekend.
The other big name on the injury report is Stefon Diggs, who did not practice after being limited yesterday, which was a walk through. While this may cause some concern, the good news is that Stefon Diggs addressed it on Wednesday and said he was fine and would be good to go.
Stefon Diggs finished his first season with the Buffalo Bills as the league leader in receptions (127) and receiving yards (1,535). The fact that he was able to say this is not a major issue is going to be a big boost for this offense.
In addition to Diggs and Beasley, the Bills also had wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie limited with an ankle injury. McKenzie replaced Beasley in the starting lineup this past week against the Dolphins and had a career game with two receiving touchdowns as well as a punt return for a touchdown.
One player who looks to be on track to return for this game is Reggie Gilliam. The undrafted rookie tight end has missed the past two weeks due to injury but if he is able to return he should step back into his role as a key part of the special teams unit.
