Clay (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Chargers.
Clay was limited in practice for the second straight day Friday, which prevented him from being removed from the injury report heading into the Week 11 matchup. Despite carrying the questionable tag, Clay is generally expected to suit up Sunday after enduring no reported setbacks in his return to action Week 10 against the Saints following a three-game absence due to a knee scope. That will likely put Clay in store for an uptick from the 29 snaps he logged in the previous contest, though the presence of a new starter under center in rookie Nathan Peterman may leave the tight end hard-pressed to match the strong numbers he posted with Tyrod Taylor at quarterback in the first five games of the season.

Clay is thus on track to suit up Sunday against the Chargers, though it remains to be seen if he draws a questionable designation for the contest or is simply removed from the Bills' Week 11 injury report. In his return to action following a three-game absence, Clay caught just two of three targets for 13 yards in last Sunday's 47-10 loss to the Saints. With a game under his belt, he could be more involved this week, especially if he ends up serving as a safety valve for Buffalo's new starting signal caller, Nathan Peterman.
Clay (knee) didn't practice Wednesday.
Clay returned from a month-long absence in time to play in Sunday's 47-10 loss to the Saints, catching two of three targets for 13 yards while playing 60 percent of the offensive snaps. With no setback reported, Clay likely is just missing practice for maintenance reasons ahead of a Week 11 road game against the Chargers. Clay will have two more days of practice to get acclimated with rookie signal caller Nathan Peterman, who was named the starter over Tyrod Taylor for the upcoming game.

Making his return after a month-long absence, Clay was unable to make a significant impact as the passing attack struggled mightily as a whole. The big target had established a strong rapport with Tyrod Taylor prior to undergoing knee surgery that should begin to rekindle sooner rather than later. Another week removed from the injury, Clay should be further integrated into next week's game plan against the Chargers.

Clay is back in the mix following a three-game absence after having practiced in a limited fashion all week. While it remains to be seen how close to 100 percent he is at this stage as he bounces back from a procedure to address a torn meniscus and MCL sprain, in his return, look for Clay to reclaim his starting role at tight end from Nick O'Leary. Despite having only played five games this season, Clay still leads the Bills with 258 receiving yards. He'll now look to re-establish his on-field rapport with QB Tyrod Taylor in a Buffalo passing offense that was recently bolstered by the acquisition of big-bodied wideout Kelvin Benjamin.
