    10/02/16SColt AndersonFOOTQUESTIONABLEAnderson (foot) is questionable to play in the Bills' Week 4 game against the Patriots.

    Anderson was limited in practice throughout the week. He serves as depth in the Bills' secondary and his absence shouldn't have a significant impact on the outcome of the game if he's ultimately ruled out.

    (Updated 09/30/2016)
    10/02/16TECharles ClayKNEEQUESTIONABLEClay (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots.

    With wideouts Sammy Watkins and Greg Salas both out this week, Clay could be a key cog in the Bills' Week 4 passing attack, assuming he suits up Sunday, which we expect he will. That said, the tight end's quiet effort this past week against the Cardinals (zero catches on two targets over 53 snaps) makes him a roll of the dice in fantasy lineups this weekend.

    (Updated 09/30/2016)
    10/02/16CBRonald DarbyHAMSTRINGQUESTIONABLEDarby (hamstring) is questionable to play in the Bills' Week 4 game against the Patriots.

    Darby was out of commission in Week 3 but participated in every practice this week. He's expected to be ready by Sunday, but his status will be confirmed prior to kickoff nonetheless.

    (Updated 09/30/2016)
    10/02/16TCordy GlennANKLEQUESTIONABLEBills left tackle Cordy Glenn has a knee injury and will not return to Sunday's game against the Patriots. Glenn injured his knee early in the fourth quarter and was able to limp off the field. 
    10/02/16QBCardale JonesRIGHT SHOULDERQUESTIONABLEJones (shoulder) is inactive for Sunday's matchup with the Cardinals.

    Jones will have to wait at least one more week before he suits up for his first NFL game, as he has been inactive the first three weeks of the season with a shoulder injury. EJ Manuel will again serve as the No. 2 quarterback behind Tyrod Taylor on Sunday.

    (Updated 09/25/2016)
    10/02/16TCyrus KouandjioANKLEOUTBills tackle Cyrus Kouandjio was beaten out for a starting spot last season by Seantrel Henderson. He is poised to turn the tables this year, per the team website.
    10/02/16CPatrick LewisKNEEOUTThe Seahawks worked in a new first-team center on Tuesday and it wasn't the one projected to fill Max Unger's vacant spot.
    10/02/16SJonathan MeeksFOOTQUESTIONABLERookie wide receiver Sammy Watkins has been deemed probable by the Bills for the Sunday game against San Diego. He has practiced in full all week with a rib injury.
    10/02/16WRGreg SalasGROINOUTSalas (groin) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in New England.

    With Sammy Watkins (foot) also absent, Marquise Goodwin will likely get the start across from Robert Woods, with Walter Powell serving as the No. 3 wideout. The Bills will try to win on the legs of LeSean McCoy and Tyrod Taylor.

    (Updated 09/30/2016)
    10/02/16SAaron WilliamsANKLEQUESTIONABLEWilliams (ankle) practiced on a limited basis all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots, BuffaloBills.com reports.

    There seems little chance Williams will miss this week's game against the team's biggest rival in an effort to try and avoid a 1-3 start. Williams had one pass defensed and a fumble recovery -- one in which he scored his first NFL touchdown -- in the Week 3 upset over the Cardinals. However, Corey Graham remains the more consistent play from an IDP perspective.

    (Updated 09/30/2016)
    08/24/16LBKevin ReddickKneeQUESTIONABLEReddick, who suffered a sprained MCL in practice Friday, was waived/injured by the Bills on Sunday.

    The Bills didn't have much choice here with several other linebackers injured and reinforcements needed. If Reddick clears injury waivers, the Bills can then either place the him on IR or agree to an injury settlement with him.

    (Updated 08/07/2016)
    08/17/16DLMarcell DareusSuspensionSUSPENDWhile Dareus will return from suspension following this weekend's game against the Patriots, he likely won't be able to play a full workload Week 5 against the Rams, BuffaloBills.com reports. Said general manager Doug Whaley, "There is no conditioning or workout that can get you in total football shape. He's been working out with weights and aerobically during his suspension. I assume we'll get him in (the lineup) right away, but he'll rotate otherwise he'll be gassed ... it's going to take him a game or two to get in football shape where he can play a full game."

    Dareus is certainly worth a look in IDP formats where he was cast aside due to his four-game suspension, though you might have to be willing to stash him on the bench for more than just this week. That said, he's one of the league's better defensive tackles when it comes to accruing stats, plus he has quite a bit to prove after the talented lineman let his teammates down yet again.

    07/29/16WRKolby ListenbeePelvisOUTListenbee, still recovering from double hernia surgery, was placed on the Reserve/Non-Football Injury list on Tuesday, BuffaloBills.com reports.

    Listenbee will miss at least the first six weeks of the regular season. The Bills have a major logjam at wide receiver and with some tough roster decisions to make may just stash the speedy Listenbee away for the bulk of the season, then work on his upside once he's fully healthy and more prepared for action.

    10/02/16DERobert Ayers Jr.ANKLEOUTAyers (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 4, ESPN reports.

    Although Ayers is no longer donning a cast on his ankle, he did not return to practice this week. It's unclear if he'll be ready for Week 5.

    (Updated 09/30/2016)
    10/02/16CJoe HawleyANKLEQUESTIONABLEHawley (ankle) is questionable for the Buccaneers' Week 4 game against the Broncos, ESPN reports.

    After missing practice on Wednesday, Hawley returned in a limited capacity on Thursday before practicing in full on Friday. He's expected to be ready by Sunday.

    (Updated 09/30/2016)
    10/02/16RBDoug MartinHAMSTRINGOUTMartin (hamstring) is expected to be out about three weeks, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

    Martin had a MRI on Tuesday and the results must not have been great. Charles Sims figures to become the Buccaneers' lead tailback as a result, with recent signing Jacquizz Rodgers in line for snaps behind him.

    (Updated 09/21/2016)
    10/02/16WRCecil Shorts IIIHAMSTRINGOUTShorts (hamstring) will not play Sunday against Denver, ESPN's Jenna Laine reports.

    Even when healthy, Shorts is no higher than fourth or fifth on the depth chart. Adam Humphries has emerged as an effective No. 3 wide receiver.

    (Updated 09/30/2016)
    10/02/16TELuke StockerANKLEOUTStocker (ankle) will not play Sunday against Denver, ESPN's Jenna Laine reports.

    Stocker's absence will leave a few more snaps for Brandon Myers, who caught one pass for seven yards on three targets in Week 3 against the Rams. Cameron Brate is the team's clear-cut top option at tight end.

    (Updated 09/30/2016)
    09/09/16WRKenny BellConcussionQUESTIONABLEBell (concussion) reached an injury settlement with the Buccaneers on Thursday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Bell suffered a concussion in Week 4's preseason finale against the Redskins, leaving him on the sidelines for an extended amount of time. The team decided to part ways with wideout instead of holding him on IR for the year.
