    Bills' Emmanuel Sanders: Sits out Thursday's practice

    Emmanuel Sanders (foot/veteran rest) didn't practice Thursday.Sanders was a full practice participant Wednesday and the fact that his Thursday absence was attributed to a combination of rest/foot issue, it appears as though the listing is maintenance-related. Friday's injury report will confirm whether Sanders approaches this weekend's game against the Dolphins carrying an injury designation. Heading into Week 1 action, Sanders was listed as questionable, but ended up suiting up this past Sunday, en route to catching four of his eight targets for 52 yards and logging 79 of a possible 85 snaps on offense.

    Bills' Emmanuel Sanders: Third in targets

    Emmanuel Sanders caught four of eight targets for 52 yards in Sunday's loss to the Steelers.Stefon Diggs and Cole Beasley were more involved, with those two combining for a whopping 27 targets and 17 catches. However, Sanders still saw the field for 93 percent of the offensive snaps, tied with Diggs for most on the team besides the line and quarterback Josh Allen. Sanders will continue to have a regular role in the offense, but with four talented receivers (one of them being a superstar in Diggs) and a quarterback that tends to run in some scores, we'd also be surprised if Sanders has a huge season. Expect more of the modest, steady production that Beasley usually puts out.

    Bills' Emmanuel Sanders: Set to play Week 1

    Emmanuel Sanders (foot) is active Week 1 against the Steelers.Sanders logged a trio of limited practices this week and appeared to be trending toward an "active" status as of early Sunday morning. The veteran will be set to join a Buffalo Bills receiving corps led by Stefon Diggs, and the unit will be going up against a Pittsburgh defense that allowed the third-fewest passing yards in the NFL in 2020.

    Bills' Emmanuel Sanders: On track to play Sunday

    Emmanuel Sanders (foot) is expected to play in Sunday's season opener against the Steelers, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.Rapoport indicates that Buffalo's No. 2 receiver is trending toward active status, barring any unexpected setbacks. Fortunately for those considering Sanders in Week 1 lineups, the Buffalo Bills kick off at 1:00 ET on Sunday. He's officially listed as questionable after being limited in practice this past week.

    Bills' Emmanuel Sanders: Questionable for Week 1

    Emmanuel Sanders (foot) will be limited at practice Friday and listed as questionable for Sunday's season opener against the Steelers, Chris Brown of the Buffalo Bills' official site reports.Fortunately for those considering Sanders in Week 1 lineups, the Bills kick off at 1:00 p.m. ET on Sunday. If the team's No. 2 receiver is limited or out this weekend, Gabriel Davis would be in line for added opportunities in a wideout corps headed by Stefon Diggs that also features slot man Cole Beasley.

    Bills' Emmanuel Sanders: Listed as limited again

    Emmanuel Sanders (foot) is listed as a limited participant for the second straight day Thursday on the team's estimated practice report.We'd be very surprised if the veteran receiver and No. 2 receiver is unable to suit up for his Buffalo Bills debut against the Steelers, though a full practice Friday would give everyone rostering Sanders in Week 1 a little more comfortability in starting him.

    Bills' Emmanuel Sanders: Limited Wednesday

    Emmanuel Sanders was listed as a limited practice participant Wednesday due to a foot injury.The foot issue has been a lingering concern for the veteran since the beginning of August, though his limited participation Wednesday could be more health management at this point. If Sanders is able to practice fully Thursday or Friday, it would erase any doubt about his availability for Sunday's game against the Steelers.

    Bills' Emmanuel Sanders: Targeted eight times

    Emmanuel Sanders caught four of eight targets for 27 yards in the first half of Saturday's preseason game against Green Bay.Stefon Diggs (knee) didn't play, and the Buffalo Bills came out with a pass-heavy gameplan that allowed Josh Allen to throw 26 passes on three drives (including eight to Sanders, five to Gabriel Davis and five to Cole Beasley). The throws to Davis and Beasley were more productive Saturday afternoon, but it's nonetheless interesting to see how frequently Sanders was targeted. Of course, Diggs should be back for Week 1 against Pittsburgh, coming off a 2021 campaign with 29 percent target share and a league-high 1,535 receiving yards. Diggs is the sure thing, while the division of snaps/targets between Sanders, Davis and Beasley will need to be monitored throughout the year.

    Bills' Emmanuel Sanders: Should make Buffalo debut Saturday

    Emmanuel Sanders (foot) is likely to play in Saturday's preseason finale against the Packers, Chris Brown of the Buffalo Bills' official site reports.Signed as a free agent during the offseason to take over for departed stater John Brown, a foot injury has cost Sanders some time getting familiar with the high-powered Buffalo offense. With Josh Allen scheduled to play at least a series or two, we imagine coach Sean McDermott would like to see his veteran receiver get at least a lick of game action with his new quarterback ahead of the Week 1 opener against the Steelers. The Bills have stated they intend to give most of the starters some amount of game action Saturday.

    Bills' Emmanuel Sanders: Not in line to play Saturday

    Emmanuel Sanders (foot) is not in uniform for Saturday's preseason game against the Bears, Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News reports.The same applies to fellow key wideout Stefon Diggs, who is dealing with a knee issue. As far as Sanders is concerned, he's been managing a foot injury of late, per Matthew Fairburn and Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic, so it appears as though he's being held out Saturday for precautionary reasons.
