  • Bills' Ryan Bates: Suffers knee injury

    Bates departed Saturday's game in Chicago due to a knee injury.

    During a 15-yard scramble by Bills quarterback Josh Allen late in the second quarter, Bates suffered the health concern.

  • Bills' Ryan Bates: Will miss Week 15

    Bates (ankle) has been ruled out for Saturday's game with the Dolphins, Alec White of the Bills' official site reports.

    Bates exited Sunday's win over the Jets with the injury, which was reported as a low-ankle sprain earlier in the week. He was expected to be day-to-day, but it appears that he ultimately may be more week-to-week with him being ruled out for Week 15's game with Miami already.
