For the entire season, the Buffalo Bills have had to deal with key players dealing with injuries and missing games. Fortunately, entering the biggest game of the season the Bills are getting a lot of those players back.

On Friday, the team announced the injury report for Week 6 and the team had only two players with injury designations. Wide receiver Jake Kumerow was ruled out with an ankle injury and defensive tackle Jordan Phillips was questionable due to a hamstring injury.

This means that players like safety Jordan Poyer, tight end Dawson Knox, wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie, and linebacker Tremaine Edmunds should be all set to return this week after missing last week’s game due to injuries.

In addition to those players, it appears that cornerback Christian Benford is also set to make his return. He suffered a broken hand against the Miami Dolphins in Week 3 and has missed the past two games. This week, Benford practiced every day but was limited in each practice.

Perfect time for the Buffalo Bills to get back to near full strength

The Buffalo Bills have been able to navigate the absences of key players pretty well to begin the season as evidenced by their 4-1 record. The Bills have shown they have excellent depth across the roster and have been able to remain one of the best teams in the NFL even when dealing with the absences of players like Poyer, Knox, and Edmunds.

However, on Sunday the Bills are set to play the other team that could make a strong case for being the best team in the AFC, the Kansas City Chiefs. This game is likely to carry serious playoff ramifications and for the Buffalo Bills to have almost their entire roster available will give them a great chance of securing the win in Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday.
