Dareus finished this season with a career-low two sacks under new coach Rex Ryan, hurting his IDP value significantly. As the defensive tackle now enters the offseason, he'll mend a broken foot and hope to return to form once healthy.
Marcell Dareus (neck) is active Sunday against the Jets.
Dareus is one of the more valuable interior linemen for the Buffalo Bills , though his fantasy upside is a bit limited given that he doesn't rack up a ton of tackles or sacks.
Marcell Dareus (neck) practiced on a full basis for the second straight day Friday and is listed as probable for Sunday's finale against the Jets.
The Buffalo Bills will have one of the more valuable interior linemen on hand this week while they try to knock the rival Jets out of the playoffs.
Marcell Dareus suffered a pinched nerve in his neck during Sunday's win over Dallas and the Buffalo Bills say he has a chance to play this week in the finale, BuffaloBills.com reports. "Marcell had a pinched nerve, or stinger or whatever, but it was longer than that," said coach Rex Ryan. "We're hoping to get him back. We hope to get him back."
Dareus must have suffered a pretty significant stinger, as he was initially listed as probable but never returned to the game. Even though the playoff ship has long since sailed, you know the Bills will let him play this week if he's able to practice, as Rex Ryan would like nothing better than to knock his former team out of the playoffs.
Marcell Dareus left Sunday's win over the Cowboys in the first half due to a shoulder injury and did not return, Buffalo Buffalo Bills .com reports.
The Bills have a chance to play spoilers in Week 17 against the Jets, but they've had so many injuries to the defense lately that it may be a tough challenge without getting Dareus or a couple of others back for the finale.
