Bills' Marquez Stevenson: Healthy scratch for MNF
Stevenson (coach's decision) is inactive for Monday's matchup with the Patriots.
Stevenson made his NFL debut in Week 12 against the Saints after spending the first 11 weeks of the regular season on injured reserve. The rookie sixth-round pick played just one offensive snap and eight special-teams snaps, so his absence Monday won't impact the Bills' offensive gameplan.... See More ... See Less
Bills' Marquez Stevenson: Comes off IR
Stevenson has been activated off injured reserve ahead of Thursday night's game against the Saints, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports. He's missed the entire season to date due to a head injury suffered during the preseason.
Now that he's been activated, we'll see if the rookie sixth-rounder suits up for what's become a huge game for the reeling Bills at New Orleans. If Stevenson does play, Buffalo will be looking for his top-end speed to boost the special teams, though we wouldn't be surprised if the Bills tossed out a gadget play involving Stevenson, either....

Bills' Marquez Stevenson: Gearing up for return
Bills head coach Sean McDermott confirmed that Stevenson (head) has been designated for return from injured reserve Tuesday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
The transaction opens up a 21-day window for the Bills to evaluate Stevenson in practice, and McDermott didn't rule out the possibility of the sixth-round rookie out of Houston playing in Thursday's game against the Saints, per Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic. Stevenson was a preseason star, but he got banged up along the way and was ultimately the team placed on injured reserve ahead of Week 1. There's not much room in the receiving corps on this high-powered offense unless injuries strike, but the special-teams group could perhaps use a boost, and Stevenson can fly. If he gets activated in the next few weeks, Stevenson's ability to contribute in the return game is probably his best path to seeing the field on game days.... See More ... See Less
Bills' Marquez Stevenson: Not practicing Wednesday
Stevenson (head) didn't practice Wednesday, Alaina Getzenberg of ESPN.com reports.
Stevenson is eligible to rejoin the team at any point after spending the mandatory three weeks on IR. However, he may need some more time to recover from the head injury he sustained during the preseason. When healthy, the rookie sixth-round pick will look to compete for a reserve spot as a depth receiver and kick returner.... See More ... See Less
Bills' Marquez Stevenson: Sent to injured reserve
The Bills placed Stevenson (head) on injured reserve Wednesday.
Stevenson made Buffalo's initial 53-man roster, so he will be eligible to come off IR as early as Week 4 against the Texans. The rookie sixth-round pick projects to operate as a depth receiver and kick returner when healthy.... See More ... See Less
Bills' Marquez Stevenson: Makes Buffalo's squad
Stevenson (head) has made the Bills' initial 53-man roster, The Buffalo News reports.
The sixth-round rookie from Houston can flat out fly, and even though he may be the No. 7 wide receiver on the depth chart, the Bills likely didn't want to risk losing his upside to the waiver wire. Stevenson is also expected to serve as a return option behind top guy Isaiah McKenzie (shoulder).... See More ... See Less
Bills' Marquez Stevenson: Evaluated for head injury
Stevenson was evaluated for a head injury during the Bills' 19-0 win against the Packers on Saturday.
Stevenson returned from a foot injury to play in the Bills' preseason finale, but he was pulled from the contest to be evaluated for the head injury. The rookie has been competing for a spot on the wide receiver depth chart throughout the preseason. Stevenson has also flashed as a punt returner, scoring a 79-yard touchdown on a punt return in Buffalo's game against the Bears in Week 2 of the preseason. The 5-foot-10, 182-pounder was building a solid case to make the team as a contributor on special teams; however, his potential head injury may have an impact on his ability to make the final cut....

Bills' Marquez Stevenson: Misses Wednesday's practice
Stevenson sat out Wednesday's practice after suffering a foot injury Saturday, Dante Lasting of the Bills' official site reports.
The speedy rookie out of Houston is in the running for one of the final spots at receiver for Buffalo. He's also being pegged as a potential return man -- he took a punt to the house Saturday's exhibition win over the Bears -- though Isaiah McKenzie appears close to locking down the top return job for the Bills....

Bills' Marquez Stevenson: X-rays negative
Stevenson (foot) was ruled out for the remainder of Saturday's contest against the Bears, but his X-rays came back negative.
Before being removed, Stevenson continued his strong preseason performance by returning a punt for a 79-yard touchdown. The sixth-round pick has a real shot at making the roster as a special teams contributor for the Bills this season.... See More ... See Less
Bills' Marquez Stevenson: Questionable to return
Stevenson is considered questionable to return to Saturday's preseason game against the Bears due to a foot/ankle injury, Matthew Fairburn of The Athletic reports.
Stevenson is apparently undergoing X-rays on the injury to get a better idea of the severity. When healthy, the Bills' sixth-round pick is competing for a job contributing on special teams and providing depth at receiver.... See More ... See Less
Bills' Marquez Stevenson: Strong pro debut
Stevenson, the Bills' sixth-round pick in the 2021 Draft, led the team in receiving Friday by catching all three of his targets for 50 yards.
Stevenson was also the team's leading kickoff returner with three returns for 74 yards. The rookie can all-out fly, but trying to figure out where he lands on the final roster is a tricky proposition, and perhaps the practice squad is his most likely path for now. However, Isaiah Hodgins did get hurt in Friday's game, which could give Stevenson more opportunity to stick.... See More ... See Less
