    08/28/16RBMike GillisleeHeadPROBABLEGillislee 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)
    08/28/16WRMarquise 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.

    (Updated 08/23/2016)
    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 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)
    08/27/16RBJonathan 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.

    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.

    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.

    08/14/16DLMario EdwardsHipQUESTIONABLEEdwards (hip) will not need surgery on his sprained hip, Scott Bair of CSN California reports.

    Edwards injured his hip while tackling Cardinals' running back David Johnson during Thursday's preseason contest. Edwards was given a four-to-six week timetable, but it was questionable if he needed surgery or not. Now that it's clear he just needs time and not surgery, he'll likely be able to return sooner than he otherwise would've, though his status for the regular season opener is still in question.

    08/14/16TEGabe HolmesAnkleDOUBTFULThe Raiders placed Holmes (ankle) on the IR Tuesday, Jimmy Durkin of the Bay Area News Group reports.

    Holmes suffered a severe high ankle sprain in Monday's practice, which has resulted in his placement on the IR. Holmes projected to be the fourth tight end on the team's depth chart this season.

    08/14/16RBJalen RichardKneeQUESTIONABLERichard rushed seven times for 35 yards and caught two passes for seven yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Titans.

    Richard got a couple of carries with the Raiders' starting offense, but managed only four yards from those touches. Instead, most his production came after half time, particularly on Oakland's opening second half series. Starting quarterback Derek Carr was still in the game at that point, which is encouraging for Richard, as is the fact that fellow rookie DeAndre Washington had a fumble returned for a touchdown to end that drive. While Washington was otherwise impressive, his error, along with Richard's solid production, keeps Richard in the mix for backup touches behind Latavius Murray going forward.

    07/11/16LBAldon SmithSuspensionSUSPENDSmith (suspension) has entered a treatment center, ESPN reports.

    Smith's reason for seeking treatment is unclear, but it comes just days after a Periscope video titled "Fire up session" surfaced of an unidentified man, suspected to be him, talking about a hand-rolled cigarette shown on screen. In wake of that video, which appeared under an account previously used by Smith, the NFL has launched an investigation into whether he violated protocols required of a suspended player seeking reinstatement from a substance abuse violation. While that investigation continues, Smith's move to now enter a treatment facility hardly seems coincidental, and more details regarding his situation should surface soon.

    (Updated 07/29/2016)
    04/27/16RBMarcel ReeceSuspensionSUSPENDReece has been suspended four games for violating the NFL's policy on performance enhancing drugs, CSN Bay Area reports.

    Reece, who will sit out Sunday's season finale against the Chiefs, is thus eligible to return to action after the Raiders' third game of the 2016 season. In the meantime, he can participate in all of the team's offseason and preseason practices and games.
