06/15/17DBShareece WrightCalfQUESTIONABLEWright is considered day-to-day after injuring his calf during Wednesday's practice, Chris Brown of BuffaloBills.com reports.

Wright's calf injury doesn't appear to be serious at this point, but it could keep him sidelined throughout the remainder of minicamp. His next chance to return would be in late July at training camp, when the calf issue figures to be a thing of the past.

06/09/17DBJames IhedigboSuspensionSUSPENDIhedigbo (leg/suspension) wants to play in 2017 after appearing in just four contests in 2016, Michael Rothstein of ESPN reports.

Ihedigbo's 2016 season ended after he fractured his fibula late in the year while playing for the Bills. Though he claims his leg has "100 percent healed," he will still have to sit out four games due to a suspension. The age-33 safety last saw significant playing time in 2015, when he played in 15 games for Detroit and recorded 63 tackles and an interception. The veteran believes he still has gas in the tank, but he may need to wait until a team faces injuries to the safety position before he gets signed.

06/09/17WRWalt PowellSuspensionSUSPENDPowell has received a four-game suspension for violating the league's performance-enhancing drug policy, the Bills' official site reports.

Powell claims he accidentally used a product that caused the positive result, but has accepted the NFL's discipline and won't appeal. He'll be eligible to return to the team's active roster in early October following the Bills' Week 4 matchup against the Falcons. Powell has hauled in just 14 passes throughout his past two seasons in Buffalo, while news of a suspension won't bode well for his chances at making the team in the long run.

05/18/17WRZay JonesKneeQUESTIONABLEJones (knee) will be a full participant during Thursday's OTA session, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports.

Jones, who missed multiple weeks of OTAs due to a minor knee injury, will compete with Andre Holmes and Philly Brown for the No. 2 spot on the depth chart at wide receiver behind Sammy Watkins (foot). The Bills have yet to see a healthy Jones on the practice field, but the second-round pick probably has the best shot at immediately earning the starting role across from Watkins after racking up 158 receptions, 1,746 yards and eight touchdowns during his senior campaign with East Carolina last year. It's worth noting the Bills seem quite interested in Jeremy Maclin, however.

01/25/17DBRobert BlantonFootQUESTIONABLEBlanton (ankle) signed a contract with the Cowboys on Thursday, Adam Caplan of ESPN reports.

Blanton played for the Bills last season, accumulating 35 combined tackles in 10 games. He started for a short stretch, but an injured ankle ended his season in what was an awful campaign health-wise for the Buffalo secondary. Blanton will likely fill a reserve role for the Cowboys going forward behind starting free safety Byron Jones. Blanton has 19 career starts and is only two years removed from a 106-tackle season, so he has some NFL experience if he were to be called upon during some portion of the upcoming season.

01/25/17DLCorbin BryantShoulderQUESTIONABLEBryant (shoulder) was signed by the Giants to a one-year deal Thursday, Dan Graziano of ESPN.com reports.

Bryant, who has spent the past four seasons in Buffalo, was placed on IR last year with a shoulder injury after notching 11 tackles in eight games. He'll look to provide depth for a defensive tackle corps led by Damon Harrison in New York.

01/25/17WRMarcus EasleyKneecapQUESTIONABLEEasley (knee) was released by the Bills on Wednesday.

Easley never saw the field in 2016 as he recovered from knee surgery. The wideout had just three receptions for 71 yards and a touchdown in his six seasons with the Bills. He's now an unrestricted free agent, but it's unclear how his surgically repaired knee is doing, which could cause teams to take caution when considering signing him.

01/25/17TEChris GraggKneeQUESTIONABLEGragg, who suffered a torn ACL during Friday's preseason loss at Washington, was waived/injured Tuesday, BuffaloBills.com reports.

The Bills can place Gragg on IR if he passes through waivers, which we assume they might be up for since he was coming on strong before the nasty injury.

01/25/17WRPercy HarvinMigraineQUESTIONABLEHarvin (head) plans to retire, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports.

Harvin came out of retirement to play for the Bills last season, only to be sidelined after two games by the migraines that have bothered him throughout his career. A first-round selection back in 2009, the speedy 28-year-old is apparently calling it quits for good. He isn't fielding offers in free agency -- which may or may not have been the case at this time last year.

01/25/17LBReggie RaglandKneeQUESTIONABLERagland (knee) was a full participant during Thursday's OTA, Joe Buscaglia of WKBW.com reports.

Ragland had been limited to individual drills during OTAs up to this point, but the 2016 second-rounder is now back on the practice field in full. Whether it be on the outside or in the middle, Ragland will have a solid chance to start at linebacker despite missing all of last year due to an ACL injury.

01/25/17DBAaron WilliamsNeckQUESTIONABLEWilliams (neck) has been released by the Bills, ESPN's Mike Rodak reports.

The Bills are revamping their secondary with a new coaching staff in town, while Williams doesn't know if he can continue with his career following several scary neck injuries that have kept him out of 22 games over the last two seasons. With Stephon Gilmore signing with New England, the Bills will likely take secondary player with one of their first two draft picks, with receiver being the other glaring need.

01/01/17WRSammy WatkinsFootQUESTIONABLEWatkins (foot) is unlikely to be handed a full workload once training camp begins, Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News reports.

Watkins is coming off two foot surgeries over the previous two seasons, but was able to partake in a handful of plays during team drills at Buffalo's mandatory minicamp earlier this month. That progress provided a source of encouragement going into the summer, but coach Sean McDermott maintains the Bills will handle Watkins on a day-to-day basis once training camp starts. As a result, it's doubtful that he'll be turned loose in a full capacity right away. Instead, expect Watkins to gradually build his activity level, with a larger focus on being ready for Week 1.
