  • Bills' Ike Boettger: Heads to reserve/PUP

    Boettger (Achilles) has been moved to the reserve/PUP list, Grace Heidinger of the Bills' official site reports. Said general manager Brandon Beane, "I think he's going to need some time. He had a little bit of a setback with his (injury), but he still has a chance to play this year."

    The reserve offensive lineman suffered the injury in Week 16 of last season, but he still needs some time before being subjected to the rigors of regular-season play. Boettger will now miss at least the first four weeks of the season.

  • Bills' Ike Boettger: Lands on PUP

    The Bills placed Boettger (Achilles) on the active/PUP list Sunday, Chris Brown of the team's official site reports.

    Boettger continues to rehab from the Achilles tear he suffered in December of last season. If the Iowa product remains on the PUP list following the initial 53-man roster deadline, he'll be forced to miss at least the first four games of the regular season.

  • Bills' Ike Boettger: Not present at OTAs

    Boettger is missing OTAs because he's still rehabbing from the Achilles tear he suffered in December, Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic reports.

    It wouldn't be incredibly realistic to expect Boettger to be back to full health at this point, and it's still up in the air whether he'll be able to participate in training camp. Once he is ready to return, he'll provide depth for the interior of a Bills offensive line that allowed one of the lowest sack totals in the league in 2021.

  • Bills' Ike Boettger: Re-signed by Buffalo

    Boettger (Achilles) re-signed with the Bills on Monday.

    Boettger is recovering from a torn Achilles, so it remains unclear if he'll be healthy by the start of training camp. Regardless, he once again figures to provide depth along the Bills' offensive line when he's finally cleared for game action.

  • Bills' Ike Boettger: Moves to IR

    Boettger was placed on injured reserve Monday after suffering an Achilles in injury in Sunday's win over the Patriots, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

    While Boettger isn't always a starter, he's an effective depth lineman and had been receiving a lot of playing to lately due to numerous other issues on the offensive line. It looks like his season may have come to an unfortunate end.

  • Bills' Ike Boettger: Injures Achilles

    Boettger (Achilles) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's contest against the Patriots, Alaina Getzenberg of ESPN.com reports.

    Getzenberg reports that the initial diagnosis is a ruptured Achilles, which would knock Boettger out for the remainder of the season. Boettger started the contest at left guard in place of Jon Feliciano, who was sidelined due to COVID-19 protocols. In Boettger's absence, the Bills will likely turn to Ryan Bates for the remainder of the contest.

  • Bills' Ike Boettger: Back to work

    Boettger was activated off the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

    Fellow offensive lineman Dion Dawkins is also expected to come off that same list soon, and once that happens, the Bills will be back to full strength on their offensive line. Boettger is expected to compete for a reserve spot.

  • Bills' Ike Boettger: Exits camp due to COVID-19

    General manager Brandon Beane announced Wednesday that Boettger and fellow lineman Dion Dawkins have tested positive for COVID-19 and won't be allowed at the team facility until they pass all protocols, Dante Lasting of the Bills' official site reports.

    Boettger is thought to have a decent grasp on a reserve spot for the Bills, but his absence to begin camp isn't ideal for a player that's not guaranteed a job with a contending team. The veteran lineman signed a one-year, $2.13 million contract with the Bills earlier this offseason.

  • Bills' Ike Boettger: Re-ups with Buffalo

    Boettger re-signed Tuesday, the Bills' official site reports.

    Boettger has never been considered a top lineman after going undrafted out of Iowa in 2018, but he proved valuable to the Bills in starting seven regular-season games and all three playoff games in 2020 when injuries struck down some of the Bills' starters. Boettger will likely go back to providing depth on the O-Line in 2021.

  • Chiefs' Ike Boettger: Claimed by Chiefs

    Boettger was claimed by the Chiefs on Monday, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.

    An undrafted rookie out of Iowa, Boettger spent the preseason with the Bills before being cut this past weekend. At 6-6, 313 pounds, Boettger offers good size for a guard but figures to only see special teams action for now.
