DiMarco (ankle) will be active for Sunday's game against the Patriots. DiMarco's availability comes as no surprise as he was deemed likely to play heading into the weekend. He could see a slight uptick in snaps with Mike Tolbert (hamstring) sidelined, though LeSean McCoy and Travaris Cadet figure to lead the backfield in touches.
DiMarco (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots but is expected to play, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports. DiMarco rarely gets offensive touches, but he's a skilled blocker in the team's rushing attack. If DiMarco is held out this week, Buffalo may have to get creative since LeSean McCoy (knee) and Mike Tolbert (hamstring) are both dealing with injuries ahead of Sunday's game, leaving Travaris Cadet as the Bills' lone healthy running back at the moment.
DiMarco (ankle) is not practicing Thursday, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports. DiMarco practiced fully Wednesday even though he was listed on the injury report, so perhaps this is just scheduled maintenance for a veteran with a minor injury. If it's anything more serious, the Bills would have some significant depth issues to address, considering they only have five running backs/fullbacks on the roster and three of them missed practice Thursday.
DiMarco will sign a four-year, $8.5 million contract with the Bills, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. DiMarco hasn't contributed much in the way of measured stats the past few years, recording just 20 receptions for 162 yards and three touchdowns while playing in all 32 games the past two seasons. That being said he's a great blocker and was a large factor in the Falcons offense this past season. He'll be a large help to LeSean McCoy and Tyrod Taylor now that he'll be in Buffalo.
DiMarco (shoulder) fully participated in Friday's practice. DiMarco was limited in previous practices throughout the week, but was able to get a full one in Friday. He has no injury status listed for Sunday's matchup with the Chargers, so he should be expected to take the field.
