Salas (groin) was released from the Bills' injured reserve list Friday, ESPN reports.
Salas, expected to be the Bills' No. 3 receiver before succumbing to injury in Week 2, has been training at the Bills' practice facility through this week and could still come back to Buffalo before season's end. However, he won't be eligible to re-sign with the team that cut him until three weeks after being released.
Salas (groin) has been placed on the injured reserve list.
Salas joins fellow wideout Sammy Watkins (foot) in landing on Buffalo's IR, further depleting the team's options at the position. With him sidelined, Robert Woods and Marquise Goodwin should see more opportunities in the Bills' passing game, with tight end Charles Clay (knee) and running back LeSean McCoy (hand) probably the most reliable targets besides them.
Salas (groin) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Rams, Sal Capaccio of WGR 550 Buffalo reports.
Salas has been unable to play since suffering a groin injury following the Bills' Week 2 game against the Jets. As a result, the team has been accustomed to playing without him lately, even though it could use him back healthy as soon as possible. Since that won't come Sunday, expect Robert Woods and Marquise Goodwin to continue to lead Buffalo's receiving corps, with Walter Powell also in the mix and Justin Hunter a candidate to see some fringe snaps as well.
Salas (groin) did not practice Thursday.
After missing practice for a second straight day Thursday, Salas looks iffy, at best, for Sunday's game against the Rams. If Salas sits out the contest, look for Walter Powell to work as the Bills' No. 3 wideout Sunday, behind Robert Woods and Marquise Goodwin.
Salas (groin) did not practice Wednesday.
With Salas' practice week starting off on the wrong foot, the Bills could well continue to go with Walter Powell as their No. 3 wideout (behind Robert Woods and Marquise Goodwin) this weekend against the Rams.
Salas (groin) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in New England.
With Sammy Watkins (foot) also absent, Marquise Goodwin will likely get the start across from Robert Woods, with Walter Powell serving as the No. 3 wideout. The Bills will try to win on the legs of LeSean McCoy and Tyrod Taylor.
Salas (groin) did not practice Thursday.
After practicing in a limited fashion Wednesday, the downgrade to a missed session puts the wideout's Week 4 status in question. Added clarity on that front could arrive Friday, upon the release of the Bills' final injury report of the week.
Salas (groin) was limited at practice Wednesday.
We'll track Salas' status in the coming days, though after seeing him practice in a limited fashion at the end of last week and then be deemed inactive this past Sunday, he can't be considered a lock to return to action this weekend against the Patriots.
Salas (groin) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.
With Sammy Watkins also out this week, the Bills' Week 3 wideout corps figures to be headed by Robert Woods and Marquise Goodwin.
Salas (groin) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.
Salas was limited in practice both Thursday and Friday, but could become a more important member of the Bills' passing game should Sammy Watkins (foot) be ruled out Sunday. While Salas will need to be active himself for that to happen, his upside this weekend seems higher than it usually would be for a depth receiver with a groin injury.
Salas suffered a groin injury at practice Thursday, ESPN's Mike Rodak reports.
With Salas hurting now and Sammy Watkins missing practice again Thursday, the Bills' top healthy wideout options in advance of Friday's practice are Robert Woods and Marquise Goodwin.
Salas brought in four of five targets for 89 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 37-31 victory over the Bills.
The five-year pro brought in a career-long 71-yard bomb early in the third quarter against his old team, closing the Bills' deficit to 20-17 at the time. Salas was not targeted in the opener against the Ravens, but seemed to benefit from a game that turned into a high-octane shootout, as well as from the physical limitations of fellow wideout Sammy Watkins. Although he is currently entrenched in the No. 3 receiver role behind Watkins and Robert Woods, Salas' solid hands and typically savvy route-running could help him generate some value in very deep PPR leagues this season.
Salas saw just 21 offensive snaps during Sunday's loss to the Ravens and was targeted just one time, a pass he did not catch.
Neither did No. 4 wideout Marquise Goodwin, illustrating just how much this offense runs through LeSean McCoy and Sammy Watkins. Salas would likely have value only if Watkins' nagging foot issues end up sidelining him.
Salas has made the final 53-man roster and is expected to open as the team's main slot receiver, BuffaloBills.com reports.
Salas has strong route-running ability and decent size, and it was enough to land a decent spot behind starters Sammy Watkins and Robert Woods among a group of ho-hum candidates. The Bills don't pass the ball enough to where a third wide receiver can be a fantasy factor, but Salas has already surprised with the No. 3 role and could be worth keeping an eye on should Watkins or Woods get hurt.
Salas (hamstring) returned to practice in full pads Monday, Mike Rodak of ESPN reports.
Salas will return to practice with an opportunity to work his way up the team's depth chart. He is currently looking up at Sammy Watkins, Robert Woods and Marquise Goodwin. However, with both Dezmin Lewis and Greg Little closing the gap, Salas will need to prove his health to solidify his spot as a depth receiver in Buffalo.
Salas (hamstring) continues to be a spectator at practice, BuffaloBills.com reports.
Salas is still in the running for the third and fourth receiver spot, but it would certainly help if he's able to get back on the field soon. Meanwhile, Dez Lewis, one of the other close competitors for the open jobs behind starters Sammy Watkins and Robert Woods, is back from his injury.
Salas (hamstring) won't play Saturday against the Colts, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports.
In the midst of Wednesday's practice, Salas was removed with a hamstring injury, which is presumably the reason for Saturday's DNP. As long as the ailment hinders his practice participation, his quest to lock down a roster spot will follow in kind.
Salas was forced out of Wednesday's practice due to a hamstring injury, BuffaloBills.com reports.
Salas is in the mix to land a final roster spot, but nothing on the WR depth chart beyond Sammy Watkins and Robert Woods is locked up, thus even a small injury could be a problem in his quest to have a meaningful role.
The Bills have released their first depth chart and Salas is listed with the second group (along with Marquise Goodwin) behind starting receivers Sammy Watkins and Robert Woods.
We actually felt the group behind the starters would include the high-upside Dez Lewis and veteran Greg Little, but instead the Bills have listed the speedy Goodwin as well as Salas in that 3/4 group. It's going to be a fluid battle the entire preseason and several decent receivers will eventually get cut. Salas has a strong knowledge of the game as well as an ability to run precise routes while being capable of being used as a returner. We'll see if it all adds up enough to gain him a spot on the final roster.
Salas, who saw action in two games with the Bills last season and signed a contract extension with the team in January, is being eyeballed for an increased role in 2016 due to Chris Hogan being signed away by the Patriots, BuffaloBills.com reports. "He's very smart, understands football, works hard," said Bills receivers coach Sanjay Lal. "What he lacks is elite, top-end speed, explosion, but he more than makes up for it in how he can separate by leaning in, using his physicality. He's gotten better at releasing over the years. Great catch radius, strong hands. I think he can be a force in the slot and as a third-down receiver."
Hogan caught 36 passes for Buffalo in 2015, and Salas has a similar skill set. The Bills are in no cap position to add a key free agent and may need to address a leaky defense at the top of the draft. While the fan base is calling for a higher-upside wideout to work across from budding star Sammy Watkins, Salas could find himself toward the top of a battle for one of the first four spots this season. That said, he hasn't done much in his pro career and doesn't offer any explosiveness, plus the Bills are a run-oriented program.
