    DatePosPlayerInjuryNFL StatusFantasy News
    08/28/16RBMike GillisleeHeadPROBABLEGillislee (concussion) will be held out of Friday's game against Washington.

    Buffalo's injury attrition throughout training camp has led the coaching staff to be extra cautious for Friday's game as Gillislee joins a lengthy list of inactive players for Friday. With Gillislee and LeSean McCoy sitting out, Reggie Bush, Jonathan Williams, and James Wilder all figure to see a bump in carries.

    (Updated 08/26/2016)
    08/28/16WRMarquise GoodwinHeadPROBABLEGoodwin suffered a blow to the head Tuesday and is currently progressing through the league's concussion protocol, Mike Rodak of ESPN reports.

    Goodwin is expected to help pillar Buffalo's receiving corps. While the nature of concussions are very serious, the Bills don't expect Goodwin to miss an extended period of time. Both Greg Little and Dezmin Lewis are expected to see more reps in practice during his absence.

    08/28/16DBNickell RobeyKneeQUESTIONABLERobey-Coleman left practice early Tuesday due to a quad contusion, BuffaloBills.com reports.

    Robey-Coleman just returned Monday from and ankle injury, so he must be getting frustrated that things aren't breaking his way as he tries to seal up the nickel job as a rising Kevon Seymour continues to make a good impression.

    (Updated 08/23/2016)
    08/28/16DBAaron WilliamsHeadPROBABLEWilliams (head) is not in uniform for Saturday's preseason affair with the Giants, Sal Capaccio of WGR550 reports.

    Williams presumed absence from Saturday's contest will mark his second consecutive missed game with Buffalo. It is unlikely that Williams coughs up his starting spot to those behind him as he remains on the sideline.

    (Updated 08/20/2016)
    08/27/16RBJonathan WilliamsRibsPROBABLEWilliams will not play this week while he continues to deal with a rib injury, Joe Buscaglia of WKBW.com reports.

    Williams left Friday's preseason matchup with a rib injury and despite original reports indicating he appeared fine after the game, he'll get the week off for further rest and recovery. The fifth-round pick of the 2016 NFL Draft is expected to play in a depth role during the upcoming season behind the likes of LeSean McCoy, Reggie Bush and Mike Gillislee, so he could struggle to see a significant amount of snaps early in the season barring any injuries higher up on the depth chart.

    (Updated 08/28/2016)
    08/16/16DLMarcell DareusSuspensionSUSPENDDareus (suspension) has opted to leave the Bills in order to receive treatment. "After careful consideration of recent events within my life, I have made the decision to enter a rehabilitation facility," he said in a statement. "I feel this is the best decision for me, my family and my teammates as I move forward with my career. I appreciate the support of my teammates and the Bills organization through this process."

    Earlier this week, Dareus received his second suspension for a violation of the NFL's Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse. Among other issues in his personal life, he'll extend his time away from the team with the aim of getting on the straight and narrow. If the defensive tackle indeed comes back to the Bills with a different state of mind, his pass-rushing prowess will be valuable, as he's notched 31.5 sacks in 78 career games.

    (Updated 08/20/2016)
    08/10/16LBReggie RaglandKneeOUTRagland's knee has too much swelling for a clear diagnosis to made right now regarding the injury he suffered during last Friday's practice, NFL.com reports.

    Ragland had an initial MRI that revealed what is believed to be a partial ACL tear, but was slated to get a second opinion Monday. However, since his knee is still pretty swollen, coach Rex Ryan could not give an update on his condition following practice. As a result, Ragland's situation will have to continue to be monitored, but Buffalo's signings of veteran linebackers Brandon Spikes and David Hawthorne on Sunday seem to indicate Ragland could be slated for an extended sideline stint.

    (Updated 08/08/2016)
    08/08/16DLKyle WilliamsKneePROBABLEWilliams, who was activated off the PUP list Monday, has been practicing all week.

    We'll see if Williams plays in the team's preseason opener Saturday, though there's a noticeable difference in the defense when Williams and Marcell Dareus are out there at the same time.

    (Updated 08/11/2016)
    07/29/16WRKolby ListenbeeUndisclosedNFICoach Rex Ryan said Wednesday that Listenbee (hernia) is not close to returning to practice, BuffaloBills.com reports.

    It's highly doubtful the super-fast sixth-rounder will be in the lineup come Week 1, so he's looking like a prime PUP or practice squad candidate.

    Pittsburgh Injuries
    DatePosPlayerInjuryNFL StatusFantasy News
    08/27/16DLCameron HeywardAnklePROBABLEHeyward (ankle) said he expects to be ready for Week 1, despite suffering a high ankle sprain in Friday's preseason game against the Saints, Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    While not completely unheard of, two weeks would represent a very quick recovery from a high ankle sprain. In all likelihood, Heyward will be no better than questionable for Week 1, perhaps even needing to miss the first few games of the season. It would be a big loss for Pittsburgh's defense, though the unit does boast improved depth in the front seven this year.

    (Updated 08/27/2016)
    08/15/16QBBruce GradkowskiHamstringOUTGradkowski, who is dealing with a left hamstring injury, is going to be out for "a number of weeks," per coach Mike Tomlin, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    The veteran QB could miss the rest of the preseason and in Gradkowski's absence, Dustin Vaughan figures to see added practice reps behind Ben Roethlisberger and Landry Jones.

    (Updated 08/16/2016)
    08/11/16RBLe'Veon BellSuspensionSUSPENDBell (suspension) gained 21 yards on three carries and 37 yards on five receptions (five targets) in Friday's preseason game against the Saints.

    Ben Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown only made brief appearances, but Bell played deep into the second quarter, perhaps because he uncharacteristically lost a fumble early in the game. Regardless, Bell appeared to be in mid-season form, showing no signs of the knee injury that brought his 2015 campaign to an early end. After he serves a three-game suspension to start the season, Bell should slide right back in as the premiere asset at his position. DeAngelo Williams figures to handle a heavy workload in his absence, with Fitzgerald Toussaint and/or Daryl Richardson occasionally mixing in.

    (Updated 08/26/2016)
    08/02/16DBSenquez GolsonFootDOUBTFULGolson (foot) claims he is a targeting a return to practice seven weeks from now, Dale Lolley of the Observer-Reporter reports.

    Golson underwent Lisfranc surgery roughly two weeks ago, but the former second round pick from 2015 is already mapping out his return to action. Just 23-years-old, Golson possesses tremendous upside and the Steelers remain optimistic that he can still carve out a role with the defense at some point in the season.

    03/14/16WRMartavis BryantSuspensionSUSPENDBryant was never under consideration of being cut by the Steelers despite his recently imposed year-long suspension, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

    Bryant's multiple violations of the league's substance abuse policy triggered a minimum one-year suspension from the league, but the Steelers never considered releasing him, according to general manager Kevin Colbert. Instead, Pittsburgh will hope Bryant makes the necessary changes to his life to get reinstated next year, when he would have two years remaining on his contract with the team. With Bryant suspended, Steelers receivers Markus Wheaton and, more specifically, Sammie Coates, will be looked upon to take advantage of their increased opportunities this season.
