  • Bills' A.J. Epenesa: Not suiting up

  • Bills' A.J. Epenesa: Questionable for Sunday

    Epenesa (ankle) is questionable for Sunday against the Panthers. Epenesa was able to log a limited practice Friday. The second-year pro plays a rotational role on the Bills' defensive line, and if he were unable to go Sunday, Efe Obada and Mario Addison would likely see a jump in snaps.

  • Bills' A.J. Epenesa: Foot injury surfaces

    Epenesa practiced on a limited basis Thursday due to a foot injury. The defensive lineman, whose play has been turning heads in his second season, was able to practice fully Wednesday, so he must have picked up the injury in practice this week. We'll see if he's able to practice Friday ahead of Sunday's big road game in Kansas City.

  • Bills' A.J. Epenesa: Ready for Week 15

    Epenesa (head) practiced fully again Saturday and does not have an injury designation for Monday's game at New England. This is no surprise for the Iowa rookie, who avoided a concussion following a hit last Saturday against the Broncos. He'll resume his depth role on the defensive line against the Patriots.

  • Bills' A.J. Epenesa: None the worse for wear

    Epenesa, who exited the Week 15 win over the Broncos with. a head injury, was listed as a full participant on Thursday's practice report. The rookie from Iowa avoided a concussion, so he appears ready to serve his usual depth role when the Bills take on the Patriots on Monday night. Epenesa has posted a modest 10 tackles and 1.5 sacks in his first campaign as he continues to get up to speed in the pro game.

  • Bills' A.J. Epenesa: Back to practice

    Epenesa, who had to leave the team's Week 9 contest against the Cardinals with a concussion, was able to practice fully Wednesday. Not that concussions can ever come at the right time, but the rookie from Iowa did get the advantage of the bye to work his way through the protocol and will likely not miss any game action. Epenesa continues to work as a rotational piece as he gets acclimated to the NFL, as he hasn't seen more than 35 percent of the defensive snaps in any game this season.

  • Bills' A.J. Epenesa: Sustains injury Sunday

    Epenesa is being evaluated for a head injury during Sunday's game against the Cardinals. The team is likely checking Epenesa for a concussion, and if that diagnosis is confirmed, the rookie second-rounder will be done for the day. Epenesa recorded one solo tackle before departing.

  • Bills' A.J. Epenesa: Buffalo debut will wait

    Epenesa has been made a game-day inactive for Sunday's game against the Jets. This is a bit of a shocker considering the rookie out of Iowa was a second-rounder in April and was the team's top pick. But hey, this was a strange offseason and players received no preseason game experience, so the Bills will start the season with a more veteran look at defensive end, an area where they have plenty of depth.

  • Bills' A.J. Epenesa: Heading to Buffalo

    The Bills selected Epenesa in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft, 54th overall. Epenesa had some first-round hype during the draft process but a poor showing at the combine hurt his stock. He had a 5.04 in the 40-yard dash and his three-cone drill is in the 25th percentile among defensive ends. That lines up with what he showed on tape, but Epenesa's calling card is his play strength. He collected double-digit sacks in each of his last two years at Iowa. Epenesa will need to develop his pass-rush rush skills in Buffalo to be a contributor as a rookie, but his power and frame (6-foot-5, 275 pounds with 34.5-inch arms) are a good foundation.
