  • Bills' Isaiah McKenzie: Healthy scratch Thursday

    McKenzie (coach's decision) is inactive for Thursday's game against the Saints.

    McKenzie played just nine offensive snaps in last week's loss to the Colts, and he wasn't targeted in the contest. Jake Kumerow could see a slight uptick in playing time Thursday.

  • Bills' Isaiah McKenzie: Plays through injury, scores TD

    Coach Sean McDermott said McKenzie is "fine" after briefly leaving Sunday's win over the Jets due to an injury, Sal Capaccio of WGR Sports Radio 550 Buffalo reports. He caught one of three targets for 12 yards and had two carries for 17 yards and a touchdown.

    McKenzie returned to the field after suffering the injury, so it doesn't appear to be much of a concern. The 26-year-old played 13 offensive snaps and was one of four different Buffalo players to notch a rushing touchdown Sunday, which was his first score of the season.

  • Bills' Isaiah McKenzie: Returns to full practice

    McKenize practiced fully Thursday after being limited during Wednesday's session due to a shoulder injury.

    The depth receiver and dangerous return man seems pretty likely to have a clear designation Friday ahead of the Bills' upcoming matchup with the rival Dolphins. McKenzie busted off 144 combined return yards in the Week 1 loss to the Steelers.

  • Bills' Isaiah McKenzie: Limited participant in practice

    McKenzie (shoulder) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

    McKenzie injured his shoulder catching a punt early in Sunday's season opener against the Steelers. The receiver was able to return to action later in the game. The Bills' starting return man's status for Sunday's game is uncertain at this point. If McKenzie is unable to play, the Bills will need to find a new return man, as McKenzie's backup, Marquez Stevenson, is on injured reserve.

  • Bills' Isaiah McKenzie: Back in Sunday

    McKenzie (shoulder) returned to Sunday's game versus the Steelers, Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News reports.

    McKenzie had to leave the field for a spell after calling for a fair catch in the first quarter, but he was able to come back in and field another punt in the second quarter. Expect him to resume return duties for the Bills moving forward.

  • Bills' Isaiah McKenzie: Picks up shoulder injury

    McKenzie suffered a shoulder injury during Sunday's game against the Steelers, Alaina Getzenberg of ESPN.com reports.

    McKenzie returned the opening kickoff 75 yards to set up the Bills at the Steelers' 24-yard line. After going up 3-0, Buffalo forced a punt on Pittsburgh's first possession, which resulted in a McKenzie fair catch. He promptly went to the sideline tent and then to the locker room without a jersey or pads, per Getzenberg. Now deemed questionable to return, it'll be interesting to see who the Bills entrust to return kicks as long as McKenzie is sidelined.

  • Bills' Isaiah McKenzie: Ready for Week 1

    McKenzie (shoulder) was listed as a full participant for the third straight day Friday and does not have an injury designation for Sunday's opener against the Steelers.

    McKenzie's status was never really in doubt, and he appears primed to serve as the team's main return man against Pittsburgh. His ability to take the field may prove more important if starting wideout Emmanuel Sanders (foot) is limited or unable to suit up.

  • Bills' Isaiah McKenzie: Ready for Week 1

    McKenzie (shoulder) was listed as a full practice participant Wednesday.

    McKenzie should be a full go for the Week 1 matchup against the Steelers in Buffalo, where he'll serve as the team's top return man and utility option in certain offensive formations.

  • Bills' Isaiah McKenzie: On track for Week 1

    Buffalo head coach Sean McDermott said Tuesday that he expects McKenzie (shoulder) to be a "full go" for Sunday's season opener versus Pittsburgh, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

    With that in mind, McKenzie looks on track to turn in three full practices Wednesday through Friday, which should erase any concerns about the health of the shoulder he injured in an Aug. 24 workout. McKenzie is expected to fill a depth role in Buffalo's wideout corps while also serving as the team's top option in the return game.

  • Bills' Isaiah McKenzie: Gearing up for Week 1

    McKenzie was back at practice Wednesday in a non-contact capacity after missing time with a shoulder injury, Mark Gaughan of The Buffalo News reports.

    McKenzie enters the season as the team's clear top return man. With fellow speedster Marquez Stevenson on injured reserve with a head injury, McKenzie's ability to suit up for at least the first three weeks of the season takes on added importance for the Bills.

  • Bills' Isaiah McKenzie: Still hurting

    McKenzie, who remains out after suffering a shoulder injury Tuesday, is in-between day-to-day and week-to-week in terms of when he'll return, coach Sean McDermott told Maddy Glab of the Bills' official site.

    McKenzie also picked up a fine this week for reportedly not wearing his mask in designated areas around the team, so it's been a rough stretch for the Bills' key utility guy. While McKenzie's status is iffy for the team's preseason finale Saturday, he does have two-plus weeks to heal up for the opener against Pittsburgh. He currently slots in as the Bills' No. 5 receiver and top return man.

  • Bills' Isaiah McKenzie: Injured during Tuesday's practice

    McKenzie suffered a shoulder injury during Tuesday's practice and will have an MRI to determine the severity, Sal Capaccio of WGR Sports Radio 550 Buffalo reports.

    McKenzie had been sitting pretty to secure the No. 5 receiver spot, so the injury could complicate things for the Bills. If it is something that sidelines the veteran, the team would also need to move down the list to find a return man as well, as McKenzie had been deemed the team's top guy to return kicks.

  • Bills' Isaiah McKenzie: Big game in one-sided win

    McKenzie caught seven of eight targets for 72 yards while rushing once for four yards in Saturday's preseason win over the Bears.

    McKenzie also returned three punts for 51 yards. He's got the top return job pretty much sealed up, but he's slowly proven himself in the passing game during his Bills tenure, and a big outing like Saturday could keep him involved offensively when the regular season begins. McKenzie can provide value in leagues that allow you to count offensive stats and return yardage for the same player. He's almost certain to open the season as Buffalo's No. 5 receiver, and he's continued to look like a guy that would be able to fill Cole Beasley's role in the slot should anything ever happen to the latter.

  • Bills' Isaiah McKenzie: In line for lead return role

    Bills special teams coordinator Heath Farwell said Thursday that McKenzie is in the "No. 1 spot" to replace Andre Roberts, who went to the Texans in free agency, as the team's primary returner, Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News reports.

    Brandon Powell and rookie Marquez Stevenson are also in the mix, but McKenzie has the most experience and he filled in behind Roberts last season, even taking a punt return to the house in Week 17. Based on his position in the return game, McKenzie seems like a near lock to make the roster as the fifth receiver. While he won't pass any of the four wideouts above him on the depth chart, offensive coordinator Brian Daboll loves including McKenzie in the game plan as a jet sweeper. If your league uses returners, McKenzie's 30-282-5 line in the receiving game is worth noting.
