  • Buffalo Injuries
    DatePosPlayerInjuryNFL StatusFantasy News
    08/28/16TEChris GraggKneeOUTGragg suffered a torn ACL during Friday's preseason loss at Washington, Vic Carucci of the Buffalo News reports.

    One day removed from predicting the diagnosis, head coach Rex Ryan confirmed the news Saturday. With Gragg lost for the season, Blake Annen and Nick O'Leary may have clearer paths to spots on the 53-man roster.

    (Updated 08/27/2016)
    08/27/16DBJonathan DowlingKneeOUTDowling sustained a torn ACL during Friday's preseason loss in Washington, Vic Carucci of the Buffalo News reports.

    One day removed from predicting the diagnosis, head coach Rex Ryan confirmed the news Saturday. The injury has sealed Dowling's fate for the 2016 season.

    (Updated 08/27/2016)
    08/27/16WRWalt PowellUndisclosedPROBABLEPowell (undisclosed) did not suffer a serious injury and has a good shot make the final roster, ESPN's Mike Rodak reports.

    Powell starred in the second half of Friday's preseason game against Washington, catching five passes for 55 yards and adding three punt returns for 57 yards. He appeared to get shaken up on the final play of the game, but the Bills haven't diagnosed him with any injury. Although Reggie Bush is expected to return punts, Powell could make the team as a depth receiver and return man. The Buffalo wideout depth chart is up for grabs behind starters Sammy Watkins and Robert Woods, with all of Powell, Greg Lewis, Greg Salas, Dez Lewis and Marquise Goodwin (concussion) vying for roles.

    (Updated 08/27/2016)
    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)
    08/24/16LBKevin 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)
    08/23/16WRMarquise GoodwinConcussionQUESTIONABLEGoodwin 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.

    (Updated 08/23/2016)
    08/23/16QBCardale JonesShoulderPROBABLEJones (shoulder) will be limited as he returns to practice on Monday.

    Jones has missed the past couple practices and also did not suit up for Friday's preseason game against Washington due to a sore shoulder. The coaching staff has yet to determine if the rookie will play in Thursday's preseason finale against the Lions, but will make a decision after monitoring him the next couple of days. The former Ohio State quarterback is competing with Austin Trainor for the No. 3 spot on the depth chart behind Tyrod Taylor and EJ Manuel.

    (Updated 08/29/2016)
    08/23/16DBNickell RobeyQuadricepsPROBABLERobey-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)
    08/23/16WRGreg SalasHamstringPROBABLESalas (hamstring) returned to practice in full pads Monday, Mike Rodak of ESPN reports.

    Salas will return to practice with an opportunity to work his way up the team's depth chart. He is currently looking up at Sammy Watkins, Robert Woods and Marquise Goodwin. However, with both Dezmin Lewis and Greg Little closing closing the gap, Salas will need to prove his health to solidify his spot as a depth receiver in Buffalo.

    (Updated 08/22/2016)
    08/21/16RBMike GillisleeConcussionQUESTIONABLEGillislee remains in the concussion protocol, but has begun the Return-to-Participation process, BuffaloBills.com reports.

    Gillislee was in pads for Sunday's practice and participated in the media viewing portion, so we wouldn't be surprised if he returns to practice fully this week. He still has a decent chance of landing the No. 2 running back job behind LeSean McCoy.

    (Updated 08/28/2016)
    08/17/16DLMarcell 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)
    08/16/16LBManny LawsonPectoralQUESTIONABLELawson (pectoral) may be facing a one-game suspension for a domestic violence incident, Tim Graham of the Buffalo News reports.

    The nature of Lawson's offense is unclear, as violations of the NFL's domestic violence policy are supposed to result in a minimum suspension of six games. The veteran outside linebacker was just activated from the Non-Football Injury list on Tuesday, after tearing his pectoral while lifting weights in the offseason. Between injuries and suspensions, the Buffalo front seven is already looking severely depleted.

    (Updated 08/16/2016)
    08/15/16TEJim DrayAnklePROBABLEDray (ankle) was fully dressed Monday and returned to practice, Jon Buscaglia of WKBW reports.

    Dray was not active during Saturday's preseason opener against the Colts after suffering from the ankle injury over the week ago, but his turn around has been quick and it looks like he should be good to go for practice this week, barring a setback. He'll continue to compete for the backup tight end job behind Charles Clay.

    (Updated 08/15/2016)
    08/12/16DBAaron WilliamsHeadQUESTIONABLEWilliams remains in the concussion protocol, but has begun the Return-to-Participation process, BuffaloBills.com reports.

    As long as Williams can get back to practice later this week or next week, he'll be the team's Week 1 starter at safety. That said, he's coming off a serious neck injury, so a little more time and hitting this preseason might have proven helpful.

    (Updated 08/28/2016)
    08/11/16DBSterling MooreConcussionQUESTIONABLEMoore is in the concussion protocol after taking a blow to the head during a two-minute drill during Wednesday' practice, BuffaloBills.com reports.

    Moore is trying to land a roster spot as a reserve cornerback, but based on his depth chart slotting when that came out earlier this week, he may be on the outside looking in.

    (Updated 08/10/2016)
    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)
    08/04/16LBJamari LattimoreNoseQUESTIONABLELattimore broke his nose during a walk-through and has missed Buffalo's last few days of practice.

    Lattimore's injury was described as a freak accident by head coach Rex Ryan. Fellow linebacker Randell Johnson slipped and fell backwards, kicking Lattimore in the face in the process. Currently, Lattimore is without a time table to return and is considered day-to-day. Kevin Reddick will likely continue to see added reps until Lattimore returns.

    (Updated 08/04/2016)
    07/29/16WRKolby ListenbeePelvisOUTCoach 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.

    (Updated 08/24/2016)
    06/15/16DLJerry HughesIllnessPROBABLEHughes finished the 2015 season with 52 tackles, five sacks, four passes defensed, two forced fumbles, and one fumble recovery. He played in all 16 games for the fourth straight season, while seeing action on 92.5 percent of the defensive snaps.

    Hughes picked up 67 points in standard IDP scoring after putting up 90 the previous season, and that's mostly due to the drop in sacks. If your league counts passes defensed, he closed that gap a bit. In truth, almost every member of the Bills' defensive line struggled with Rex Ryan's new system, and there's little reason Hughes can't get back to double-digit sacks in 2016 as his familiarity in a complex scheme grows. Hughes also took some dumb penalties in 2015, and it won't sit well with the coaching staff if he doesn't clean that up permanently.

    (Updated 01/13/2016)
    Denver Injuries
    DatePosPlayerInjuryNFL StatusFantasy News
    08/28/16WRCody LatimerKneePROBABLELatimer (knee) suffered a minor sprain during Saturday's preseason game according to initial tests, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

    Latimer appears to have avoided any kind of major injury, and should be ready for Week 1 against the Panthers. The former second-round pick will likely begin the regular season as the No. 3 option in the receiving corps, while Bennie Fowler (elbow) could earn that spot upon his return from injury.

    (Updated 08/29/2016)
    08/25/16TEGarrett GrahamShoulderPROBABLEGraham (shoulder) isn't expected to play in Saturday's preseason game against the Rams, Jeff Legwold of ESPN reports.

    A shoulder injury has kept Graham on the sideline for each outing of his first exhibition season as a Bronco. With Jeff Heuerman (hamstring) also on the pine, Virgil Green has emerged as the clear-cut No. 1 tight end in Denver.

    (Updated 08/27/2016)
    08/24/16TEManasseh GarnerAbdomenPROBABLEGarner was waived by the Broncos on Thursday after undergoing an appendectomy on Wednesday, Mike Kils of 9News reports.

    Garner was competing for a spot at the bottom of the depth chart for the Broncos and his surgery couldn't have come at a worse time. It can take up to a month to recover from an appendectomy, which would be enough to keep the undrafted rookie out nearly all of camp, and is likely the reason Denver waived him.

    (Updated 07/28/2016)
    08/23/16QBTrevor SiemianShoulderPROBABLESiemian will be the Broncos' starter to begin the season the Broncos' official site reports.

    The decision hardly comes as a surprise given the ineffectiveness of Mark Sanchez and inexperience of rookie first-rounder Paxton Lynch. Siemian has completed 27 of 43 passes for 285 yards, a touchdown and two picks in three preseason games, including two starts. Those numbers are hardly awe-inspiring, so Siemian will likely have to continue to improve in order to fend-off a mid-season switch to Lynch.

    (Updated 08/29/2016)
    08/23/16LBDeMarcus WareUndisclosedPROBABLEWare (undisclosed) practiced in half-speed team drills Wednesday, Mike Klis of 9news reports.

    The Broncos looked like their old selves Wednesday with the returns of both Aqib Talib and Ware. While the quarterback dilemma is likely to linger on all season long, having Ware back on the field is a huge boost, regardless of form. In just 11 games last season, the 34-year-old registered 7.5 sacks to compliment 25 combined tackles. Ware is an unquestionable leader of Denver's defense, and the mere sight of him on the practice field is likely to lift team spirits.

    (Updated 08/24/2016)
    08/17/16TEJeff HeuermanHamstringPROBABLEHeuerman (hamstring) isn't expected to suit up for Saturday's preseason game versus the Rams, Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com reports.

    After tearing his ACL in May of 2015, hamstring troubles continue to plague Heuerman in his first go-around at training camp. With offseason pickup Garrett Graham (shoulder) also on the pine, Virgil Green has emerged as the clear-cut No. 1 tight end in Denver.

    (Updated 08/27/2016)
    08/17/16DBShiloh KeoSuspensionSUSPENDKeo has been suspended two games for a violation of the NFL's substance-abuse policy, Nicki Jhabvala of The Denver Post reports.

    The suspension stems from a February arrest for driving under the influence. Keo was probably already on the roster bubble, and a two-game absence to start the season won't help his case to make the team.

    (Updated 08/12/2016)
    08/15/16DLVance WalkerKneeOUTWalker has an ACL injury that will cause him to miss the entire 2016 season, Mike Klis of The Denver Post reports.

    Walker was carted off the field during Monday's practice, and an MRI confirmed the worst case scenario. The veteran defensive lineman was projected to backup Derek Wolfe on the left side of the line this season. Calvin Heurtelou now figures to slide into that role.

    (Updated 08/15/2016)
    08/13/16WRBennie FowlerElbowQUESTIONABLEFowler, who didn't practice Saturday, is dealing with a fracture in his right elbow and will miss a few weeks according to coach Gary Kubiak, Nicki Jhabvala of the Denver Post reports.

    Fowler's Week 1 status is now in jeopardy given the timetable to return from his fractured elbow. Cody Latimer figures to slot in as the No. 3 option at receiver with Fowler sidelined, while Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders continue to lead the way.

    (Updated 08/13/2016)
    08/10/16DBRyan MurphyHamstringQUESTIONABLEThe Seahawks have six of their eight draft picks under contract.
    08/09/16DBTaurean NixonUndisclosedPROBABLENixon did not practice on Tuesday for undisclosed reasons.

    Head coach Gary Kubiak would only admit that Nixon had suffered "a little knick" during Monday's session. Thus, the severity or location of Nixon's injury is unknown, but Kubiak's lack of concern bodes well for his his health going forward.

    (Updated 08/09/2016)
    08/08/16DBAqib TalibLower LegPROBABLETalib (leg) returned to practice Wednesday, Mike Klis of 9news reports.

    Talib's roller coaster offseason seems to finally be approaching a halt. His leg is near 100 percent, and after a report earlier this week indicating that Talib is likely to play on Saturday, there is reason to be optimistic in Denver. The Broncos have a plethora of stability issues at the moment, so seeing Talib back on the practice field Wednesday has to be reassuring for coach Gary Kubiak and company.

    (Updated 08/24/2016)
    08/04/16DBChris HarrisHamstringPROBABLEHarris (hamstring) participated in walk throughs after being held out of padded practice, Troy Renck of 7News Denver reports.

    It was originally reported that Harris was being held out of practice due to his hamstring injury but it appears the injury isn't too serious since the corner got on the field for walk throughs. It's unclear how long he'll remain out but he should be expected back in full any day.

    (Updated 08/04/2016)
    07/30/16DLAdam GotsisKneePROBABLEGotsis (knee) divulged his knee is not yet 100 percent ready to resume practicing, ABC's Troy Renck reports.

    Gotsis had torn his ACL in 2015 during his final season at Georgia Tech, but although he was Denver's 2016 second-round selection, he will still need to get on the practice field to earn an early-season role during his rookie campaign. When healthy, he will compete with Jared Crick, Vance Walker and Kenny Anunike, among others, for a role in replacing the departed Malik Jackson along the Broncos' defensive line.

    (Updated 07/31/2016)
    07/30/16TEJohn PhillipsAnklePROBABLEPhillips (ankle) will not participate in practice Sunday, Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports.

    Not a guarantee to make the team's final roster, the ankle injury is a tough blow for Phillips, who appeared to have hurt it during Saturday morning's practice. Phillips will be evaluated again Monday prior to practice, but currently remains without a concrete timetable for a return. With guys like Virgil Green, Jeff Heuerman and Garrett Graham ahead of him on the depth chart, it could be tough for Phillips to secure a roster spot, barring a spectacular showing during the preseason.

    (Updated 07/31/2016)
    05/26/16LBBrandon MarshallFingerPROBABLEThe Broncos and Marshall (finger) agreed to terms of a four-year contract extension Tuesday, Andrew Mason of the team's official site reports.

    Marshall shuttled between the practice squad and active roster with both the Jaguars and Broncos in his first two seasons, seeing action in just six total games between 2012 and 2013. However, he took advantage of an injury to Danny Trevathan at the outset of the 2014 campaign and has been a regular at inside linebacker for the Broncos in the meantime. In addition to back-to-back 100-tackle seasons, Marshall has tacked on 3.5 sacks, three forced fumbles, and two interceptions in 30 regular season games, while playing a key role in Denver's run to the Super Bowl 50 title.
