Goodwin (groin) was able to partake in batting practice prior to Washington's game Wednesday, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.
Goodwin started running on the field Tuesday, which marked the first time he was able to sprint since suffering a setback earlier this month. Wednesday's batting practice was also the first time Goodwin participated in any sort of live hitting, as he continues ramping up efforts to return before the end of the regular season.
Ruiz is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Nationals.
Ruiz retreats to the bench after going 0-for-3 with a pair of strikeouts during Tuesday's contest. In his place, Johan Camargo will draw the start at the hot corner.
Inciarte (thumb) was expectedly kept out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against Washington.
Inciarte was able to avoid any sort of major injury during his setback Tuesday, but will receive the night off for Wednesday's contest while resting his thumb. There has been no word on his condition, besides the fact that there was no structural damage, which leaves him in a day-to-day situation for the time being. In his place, Lane Adams will patrol center field and bat seventh in the order.
Holmes (arm) is not listed on the initial injury report for Sunday's game against the Broncos.
Holmes was removed from Sunday's 9-6 loss to the Panthers with an arm/shoulder injury, but it apparently isn't anything that warrants concern moving forward. Serving as Buffalo's No. 3 wideout, he's caught three passes for 19 yards and a touchdown on five targets while logging 73 offensive snaps through two weeks. A nightmare matchup with the 'No Fly Zone' secondary won't help matters.
Belt was moved to the 60-day DL earlier in the day, officially ending his season, but it seems 29-year-old is making some progress in his recovery from a concussion. Nothing should be taken for granted moving forward given his history of head injuries, but Belt just signed a five-year extension in 2016 and will be a starter next year if healthy.
