Coach Rex Ryan is unsure of Karlos Williams ' status for Sunday's game against the Texans. "Karlos' shoulder we'll see how it progresses through the week," Ryan said Monday. "Hopefully he can play, we're not 100 percent sure."
With the Buffalo Bills having waived Boom Herron last week, the team's healthy backfield options are currently down to LeSean McCoy, Boobie Dixon and fullback Jerome Felton. Meanwhile, Mike Gillislee could possibly be another option, though he on the team's practice squad.
Nigel Bradham left Sunday's loss to Kansas City due to an ankle injury and was seen in a walking boot leaving the locker room, The Buffalo News reports.
Bradham managed just four total tackles with no other stats prior to leaving, so his day was pretty poor for IDP owners. As for the Buffalo defense, Preston Brown and Bradham are the best two linebackers amid a corps without much experience, so if Bradham has to miss any time it's going to be felt by a Buffalo defense that's already down several key players.
Charles Clay caught five balls on eight targets for 31 yards in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs.
Clay hasn't scored since Week 3. Even though the Buffalo Bills love the all-around game he brings to the table, the passing attack is so inconsistent that Clay's production typically trails his skill set. There may be one or two decent games in store the rest of the way as the team continues to figure things out, but no one outside of LeSean McCoy has proven consistent in this offense and it's best to avoid most of the constituents as every-week starters if you can help it, McCoy and Sammy Watkins aside.
Chris Hogan caught three balls on five targets for 34 yards in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs.
Hogan had the second-most yards in the passing game, but the first half was all the Sammy Watkins Show and then the Buffalo Bills couldn't get anything going in the second half. When the Chiefs threw the entire defensive playbook at stopping Watkins, that should have been the time for Hogan and Roberts Woods to find seams in the passing game, but as has been the case for much of the season, that didn't happen. Simply put, this is a rushing offense and there's no consistency to be had from a third wideout like Hogan, even though he's a guy who has shown the ability to get open.
