Gilliam (knee) was absent from Tuesday's injury report. Gilliam's injury is no longer a concern after he missed the final two games of the season, and he'll be ready for Saturday's wild-card game against the Colts. The rookie fullback/tight end played in 14 games during the regular season, mostly as a special-teams contributor.
Bills head coach Sean McDermott said that Gilliam (knee) won't suit up Sunday against the Dolphins, Sal Capaccio of WGR Sports Radio 550 Buffalo reports. Gilliam is set to close out the regular season with back-to-back missed games, though it's possible that the fullback will manage to return during the playoffs. On a positive note for Buffalo, McDermott didn't rule out any other players for Week 17.
Gilliam has been ruled out for Monday's game at New England due to knee/hamstring injuries, the Bills' official site reports. Gilliam sees the bulk of his snaps on special teams, so the Bills will have to dig a little deeper on those units Monday as they shoot for the No. 2 seed in the AFC after clinching the AFC East crown already.
Gilliam (knee/hamstring) was listed as a non-participant on Thursday's practice report. Gilliam is the one guy on the Bills' roster capable of playing fullback even though he also serves as a depth tight end, though he's really more of a special teams guy at this stage of his career. We'll see if he can upgrade his practice participation ahead of Monday's game at New England.
Gilliam (hamstring) returned to full practice participation Friday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports. The fullback's full practice participation suggests he'll be able to suit up Monday against the 49ers. Gilliam has caught only two passes all season, though one went for a touchdown.
