Worthy passed the NFL's concussion protocol and is expected to practice Wednesday, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports.
The Bills' release of DeAndre Coleman earlier this week appeared to signal that the team anticipated Worthy would be able to make his season debut Sunday against the Falcons, and the fact that Worthy has been cleared to practice only adds further credence to that notion. With Marcell Dareus (ankle) expected to be limited at practice Wednesday and at risk of missing the Week 4 contest, Worthy could be thrust into a sizable role right away if he indeed suits up this weekend.
Worthy (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Broncos.
Worthy has reportedly started to finally see some progress in the concussion protocol, but he's not far enough along yet to be ready for Sunday's game, where the Bills will now be extra short-staffed because Marcell Dareus has also been ruled out.
Worthy (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's season opener against the Jets, Sal Capaccio of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.
Worthy is still going through the league's concussion protocol after missing this past week of practice, and it appears as though the Bills already know the defensive tackle won't be symptom-free by the weekend. Adolphus Washington and Cedric Thornton will be the only reserve defensive tackle's in Worthy's absence Sunday.
