The Buffalo Bills unfortunately look like they will be heading into another game with a number of injuries that they are going to have to manage.

Of the 10 players, the Bills already ruled three out for the game against the Baltimore Ravens. That group includes cornerback Christian Benford, defensive tackle Jordan Phillips, and wide receiver Jake Kumerow.

These three players being ruled out isn’t too much of a surprise as all three appear to be dealing with more long-term injuries.

Buffalo Bills have seven players questionable including Gabe Davis, Jordan Poyer, and Ed Oliver

The Buffalo Bills have an additional seven players who are questionable this week and that group includes:

  • WR Gabe Davis (ankle)
  • CB Dane Jackson (neck)
  • TE Dawson Knox (back/hip)
  • C Mitch Morse (elbow)
  • OL Justin Murray (foot)
  • DT Ed Oliver (ankle)
  • S Jordan Poyer (foot)

Unfortunately, almost every player in this group was limited every practice this week and their availability certainly seems to be up in the air. The only player who wasn’t limited every day was Gabe Davis and the only day he wasn’t was on Thursday when he wasn’t able to practice at all.

Outside of Murray, who the Bills signed this week, all the other players who are questionable are starters for Buffalo. If any of them are able to return it is a boost for this team against the Ravens.

The good news for the injury report on Friday was that offensive guard Ryan Bates did not have any injury designation. He was in the concussion protocol and has steadily increased his workload after not practicing on Wednesday and being limited on Thursday. On Friday, he was able to practice in full and appears like he will be able to play this week.

The Buffalo Bills will have an opportunity to call players up from the practice squad tomorrow and this should give a good indication of what players might be trending to not playing this week and who could get back on the field.
