The Buffalo Bills released their injury report for Thursday’s practice and unfortunately a new injury appeared for this report. Edge rusher Von Miller missed Wednesday’s practice for Vet Rest but on Thursday didn’t participate in practice due to an ankle injury.

This would be a huge loss if Miller was not able to play this week against the New York Jets because it appears more likely that the Bills are going to be without two other key starters this week. Safety Jordan Poyer is dealing with an elbow injury suffered last week against the Packers and for the second straight practice was not able to participate.

In addition to Miller and Poyer, linebacker Matt Milano also missed his second straight practice this week due to an oblique injury.

The Buffalo Bills have typically needed players to participate at some point in practice to be available for the game. The team has to give injury designations for Sunday’s game on Friday and this will give a good indication of who might be available and who is trending toward missing the game.

Spencer Brown and Tremaine Edmunds were both limited for the Buffalo Bills for the second straight practice

While the Bills had a number of players unavailable for both practices this week, the team has been able to have starting right tackle Spencer Brown and linebacker Tremaine Edmunds participate at least some in each practice. It doesn’t necessarily guarantee they will play this week but it at least could indicate their chances are higher than the other players.

The good news for the Bills is that there were a number of players that either missed or were limited on Wednesday that got in full practices on Thursday. This group includes running back Taiwan Jones and center Mitch Morse and both appear trending in the right direction for their game on Sunday against the New York Jets.
