Streater, who missed all of last season due to a dislocated big toe suffered in the preseason, is healthy again and has been practicing with the second unit, Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News reports. Streater hasn't been on the fantasy radar since 2013, when he tallied 888 yards and four touchdowns with the Raiders. The Bills really liked him last summer, as he had a shot at a starting job until the injury did him in. With Kelvin Benjamin the only sure thing in the Buffalo receiving corps, Streater has a good shot at landing one of the 3-4-5 spots, and he could work his way to as high as No. 2 if Zay Jones continues to disappoint.
Streater signed a reserve/future contract with the Bills on Monday, Mike Rodak of ESPN reports. Streater impressed the Bills' coaching staff in training camp but hurt his toe in August and was let go prior to the season opener with an injury settlement. Although his career has largely gone downhill since his breakout 2013 campaign with the Raiders when he caught 60 passes for 888 yards and four scores, Streater has a legitimate shot to earn a roster spot with Buffalo if he can avoid the injury bug.
Streater (toe) was let go Saturday with an injury settlement, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports. Streater actually had a shot at a starting job at one point, but a toe injury ultimately did him in. Considering the Bills later traded for Kaelin Clay, Streater probably doesn't fit into the team's immediate plans in the short term, even when he gets healthy. But things can change quickly in the NFL whether it's with the Bills or elsewhere, and we'd be surprised if a veteran with his size and experience stayed unemployed for long.
Streater (toe) hasn't been spotted in his uniform on the sideline and appears unlikely to play in Thursday's preseason finale against the Lions, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports. Streater had been climbing up the depth chart in rapid fashion, but the toe injury -- which he suffered in the second preseason game -- really set him back and may have cost him an outside shot at a starter's role. The veteran wideout still may have done enough to earn his spot on the Week 1 roster, but being able to return to practice next week would help remove any consideration from Streater receiving a long-term injury designation.
Streater (toe) has been ruled out for Saturday's preseason game against the Ravens, Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News reports. Streater suffered from the toe injury in last Thursday's preseason game against the Eagles and looks to still be recovering, as he hasn't participated in practice since. Streater is currently fighting to be the No. 3 wideout behind Jordan Matthews and rookie Zay Jones.
