Charles Clay (calf) was limited at Thursday's practice.
Clay, who recorded nine catches on a team-high 13 targets for 111 yards this past Sunday against the Giants, was added to the Buffalo Bills ' injury report Thursday, so we'll revisit his status no later than Friday's practice. At this stage though, there has been nothing to suggest that the tight end's Week 5 status is in peril.
Buffalo Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor (ankle) completed 28 of 42 passes for 274 yards with one touchdown and one interception Sunday against the New York Giants . He also rushed six times for 15 yards.
Taylor connected with nine different receivers as tight end Charles Clay led the way with nine catches on 13 targets for 111 yards. His streak of passing for at least three touchdowns ended at two, but he's thrown for 270 yards or more in successive outings. That's a fairly solid output without top wideout Sammy Watkins .
Up next is a trip to face the Tennessee Titans in Week 5.
Facing his former team, the Bills seemed determined to get him the ball early, as he had multiple catches on their first scoring drive, which culminated in his own 25-yard touchdown grab.
On the touchdown play, Clay showed impressive after-the-catch skills, making three defenders miss. With a touchdown in back-to-back weeks and strong QB play from Tyrod Taylor in general, Clay seems like a player with increased value. He and the Bills will face the Giants in Week 4.
A 7-62-1 line isn't bad through two games for a second-tier tight end, though it'd be nice to see the yardage output increase in the coming weeks. With LeSean McCoy, Sammy Watkins, Percy Harvin, and Robert Woods around on offense, however, amid an offense that likes to run the ball, Clay stands little chance of putting up huge totals every week.
