Powell 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.
Powell (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports. Powell was carted off the field Sunday against the Jaguars and will now spend the remainder of the season on the sideline. A depth option at wideout, the 25-year-old recorded 14 receptions for 142 yards in nine games this year. The team promoted wide receiver Dezmin Lewis from the practice squad as result of the injury.
Powell was forced out of Sunday's game against the Jaguars with an ankle injury. Powell was carted off after suffering what had the look of a serious injury, per ESPN's Mike Rodak. The wideout finished Sunday's game with one catch for one yard.
Powell (hip) was not on the Bills' Wednesday injury report. Powell appears to be over the hip injury that kept him out of Sunday's win over the Bengals. He projects to be available in Week 12 against the Jaguars at this rate.
Powell (hip) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Bengals. With Powell out, Marquise Goodwin, Justin Hunter and Percy Harvin are in line to jostle for wideout targets behind Robert Woods on Sunday.
