Wright, who missed some practice time earlier in the week with a thumb injury, started Thursday's preseason game opposite Tre'Davious White as a starting cornerback and played several series in the first quarter, Canio Marasco of the Bills' official site reports.
Wright is in a battle with Kevon Seymour and likely newcomer E.J. Gaines (acquired from the Rams in the Sammy Watkins trade) for the starting spot, with the rookie White being pretty much a lock to start from Day 1.
Wright (thumb) is listed as questionable for Thursday's second preseason game, Vic Carucci of The Buffalo News reports.
His injury doesn't sound serious, and with starting cornerback Ronald Darby getting traded to the Eagles last week, Wright will have his hat in the ring -- along with a few others -- for the vacant starting spot. Rookie first-rounder Tre'Davious White is the only sure starter for now.
Wright exited Sunday's practice with an injured right thumb, ESPN's Mike Rodak reports.
This is an unfortunate development for Wright, as he was taking first-team reps in place of Ronald Darby, who was traded Friday. It isn't clear how long he'll be out.
Wright's calf injury doesn't appear to be serious at this point, but it could keep him sidelined throughout the remainder of minicamp. His next chance to return would be in late July at training camp, when the calf issue figures to be a thing of the past.
Wright joins Buffalo after visiting the team as a free agent earlier this offseason. The 30-year-old spent the past two years with the Ravens, totaling 92 tackles and 11 pass deflections over 23 appearances, including 16 starts. After drafting Tre'Davious White in the first round last week, the Bills have now further boosted their options at cornerback by adding Wright to the mix.
