The Buffalo Bills are entering the first regular season game almost completely healthy as the team had only two players with injury designations for Week 1 against the Los Angeles Rams. Those players are backup offensive tackle Tommy Doyle, who is dealing with a foot injury, and backup tight end Quintin Morris, who has a hamstring injury.

Both players missed the first two practices of the week but were able to practice in a limited fashion on Wednesday. It will be interesting to see how the team approaches this game for both players as they are backups and with other options on the roster, the Bills could be cautious and give both players the week off to rest.

Jordan Poyer and Isaiah McKenzie ready to go for the Buffalo Bills

The bigger news for the Buffalo Bills is the players who don’t have injury designations as there were some questions around safety Jordan Poyer and wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie.

Poyer has been out for a few weeks now as he has been dealing with an elbow injury from training camp. He has been slowly working his way back and the concern for his availability went away pretty early in the week as he was a full participant.

The same could be said for Isaiah McKenzie as he was dealing with a groin injury from last week. However, he also was a full participant the entire week and is now ready for the first game of the season as the starting slot receiver.

McKenzie also is listed as the starting kick returner so if he was not able to play, it would have been a challenge for the coaching staff to find options at both spots. The likely scenario would have been calling up Tavon Austin from the practice squad and having Jamison Crowder replace him in the slot.
