Roberts (back) practiced fully Saturday after being limited in this week's other practice and does not have an injury designation for Monday's game at New England. The elite return man will resume his normal kickoff and punt return duties in the Monday Night Football matchup. Roberts leads the NFL by a good margin with 1,173 total return yards this season.
Roberts, who exited the Week 15 win over the Broncos with a back injury, was listed as a limited participant on Thursday's practice report. Roberts has proven time after time that he's one of the league's best return men, so the Bills would love to have him back as close to full health as possible as they try to sweep the season series against the Patriots on Monday for the first time since 1999.
Roberts (Achilles) doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against Pittsburgh. Roberts upgraded to a full practice Friday after a pair of limited sessions, clearing him to suit up. He has just two catches this season, but Roberts' value comes primarily as a return man on special teams, as he's earned Pro Bowl honors in that role in each of the previous two campaigns.
Roberts was limited for the second consecutive day Thursday due to an Achilles injury. Coach Sean McDermott tends to take it easy on his veterans, especially this time of year, so while Roberts' injury is something to keep an eye on, we're optimistic about him playing in such a big upcoming matchup this week when the Bills take on the Steelers.
Roberts (Achilles) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday. This is the first mention of an Achilles injury for Roberts. The veteran return specialist's practice participation will be worth monitoring ahead of Sunday's high-profile matchup with the Steelers, but there's little to suggest that his status for the game is in danger at this point.
