Roberts (ankle) is active for Tuesday's game versus the Titans.
Roberts was limited during Saturday's session and has proven he's healthy enough to play in the rare Tuesday outing. The veteran receiver could enjoy some extra reps on offense with John Brown (knee) sitting out, but he'll mainly work as a kick and punt returner.
Roberts (ankle) was a limited participant for Saturday's walkthrough practice and is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game in Tennessee, the Bills official site reports.
Roberts doesn't see much action on offense, but he's one of the best return men in the league and consistently puts the Bills' suddenly high-powered offense in good field position, so his presence is important toward the team's chances of starting out 5-0.
Roberts (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
Roberts appears to have suffered an ankle injury during Sunday's win over the Raiders, during which he caught his first target of the season for six yards. If the veteran special-teams ace were forced to miss any time, Isaiah McKenzie would stand to take over as Buffalo's top return man.
Roberts returned five punts for 69 yards and one kickoff for 31 yards during Sunday's win over the Jets.
The veteran only saw two plays on offense and seems to be the No. 6 receiver, but he's also the top guy on both return squads and should be among the league leaders all season. Roberts accrued 664 kickoff return yards in 2019, fourth in the league, and he did so in just 13 games played. His 223 punt return yards ranked eighth. The previous season with the Jets, Roberts led the NFL in kickoff return yards and was second in punt return yards. He's essentially the Saquon Barkley of special teams categories, especially with the Bills making an effort to beef up their special teams units this offseason.
Buffalo re-signed Roberts on Sunday, Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN.com reports.
Roberts was cut in a move likely relating to the salary cap Saturday, but he now rejoins the Bills only a day later. He'll reprise his usual key role in the return game and as a depth receiver.
The Bills released Roberts on Saturday, Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic reports.
Although Roberts was released, the team plans to re-sign him Sunday and roster him the entire season. The move is likely related to the salary cap, but the Bills don't want to lose Roberts, who averaged 26.6 yards (fifth in the league) on 25 kickoff returns and 8.0 yards (10th) on 28 punt returns in 2019.
Roberts averaged 26.6 yards on 25 kickoff returns (fifth in the NFL among qualifiers) and 8.0 yards (10th in the NFL) on 28 punt returns this season in 13 games.
Roberts didn't do much in the passing game, catching just three of seven targets for 20 yards all season, but he remains one of the league's better return men and we imagine the Bills will be happy to have him back after he signed a two-year deal in March.
Roberts (foot) practiced on a limited basis for the third straight day Thursday and is listed as questionable for Saturday's playoff game in Houston.
The lean seems to be Roberts playing in the big game, where he won't add much to the offense but does have the ability to change the contest with his fantastic return abilities.
Updating a previous report, Roberts (foot) was able to practice on a limited basis Tuesday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
Roberts said afterward that his injured foot held up well, so it looks like he could play in this weekend's playoff game in Houston. The veteran doesn't add much offensively (just three catches on seven targets all season), but he's one of the league's better return men, an area that could make a difference in what figures to be a tight game between two good-but-not-great teams.
Roberts (foot) is not participating in Tuesday's practice, Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic reports.
Roberts hasn't participated in practice since suffering a foot injury Week 16. He'll have two more chances to upgrade his activity ahead of Saturday's wild-card playoff round in Houston. Devin Singletary and Micah Hyde will be called upon to handle kick and punt return duties, respectively, if Roberts is forced to miss any more time.
Roberts (foot) is ruled out for Sunday's regular-season finale against the Jets.
Roberts has missed three straight practices due to a foot injury sustained Week 16. The Bills would normally call upon Devin Singletary and Micah Hyde to handle kick and punt return duties, respectively, though with the No. 5 seed in the AFC all locked up, the team may just play it safe with those two key players and let others get some time returning kicks, such as Isaiah McKenzie on punts.
Roberts (foot) is not practicing Thursday, Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic reports.
Roberts has missed back-to-back practices due to a foot injury sustained Week 16. He's not trending in the right direction for Sunday's divisional tilt against the Jets. If Roberts were to miss any time, Devin Singletary and Micah Hyde would be called upon to field kick and punt returns, respectively.
Roberts (foot) was projected as a non-participant in the team's injury report Wednesday.
Roberts sustained a previously unspecified injury in the team's Week 16 loss to the Patriots. The first practice report of the week indicates that he suffered a foot injury, and his projected non-participation isn't a positive sign for his availability Sunday against the Jets.
Coach Sean McDermott said Monday that Roberts sustained an unspecified injury during Saturday's loss to the Patriots, Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN.com reports.
Roberts wasn't targeted on 13 offensive snaps but returned two kicks for 57 yards and one punt for 17 yards. The 31-year-old's potential availability for the regular-season finale should come into focus when the Bills return to practice later this week, though for now we'll note the team has nothing to play for this week as the locked-in No. 5 seed.
Roberts caught one of two targets for seven yards during Sunday's win over the Steelers. He also returned two kickoffs for 45 yards and one punt for 12 yards.
Roberts saw 26 percent of the offensive snaps, his second-most playing time on offense this season. While he only sees the occasional look in the passing game, they still give him a little extra fantasy value in formats that reward his fine return skills. Roberts' 607 kickoff return yards ranks fourth in the league through 14 weeks, while his 206 punt return yards ranks sixth.
Roberts caught one of three targets for seven yards during Sunday's 19-16 loss to Cleveland, adding 115 yards on five kick returns and 34 yards on two punt returns.
Roberts' three targets were his most of 2019 and his catch was just his second of the season. The veteran has been an effective returner for Buffalo, ranking fourth in the league with 28.6 yards per kick return and 14th in the league at 6.9 yards per punt return, but his value seems to begin and end there. He shouldn't be on your radar Sunday against a rapidly improving Dolphins squad.
Roberts was unable to haul in his lone target during Sunday's 31-21 win over the Dolphins.
In Buffalo's first game since Zay Jones was traded to Oakland, Roberts' role in the offense didn't change much, with seven total offensive snaps after averaging 7.3 offensive snaps in the previous three games. Duke Williams' (shoulder) status Sunday could give Roberts a little more opportunity against a leaky Philadelphia defense, but it's hard to imagine a scenario in which Roberts catches more than a pass or two as a gameday WR3 or WR4.
Roberts returned six punts for 46 yards and two kickoffs for 71 yards in Sunday's loss to the Patriots. He also caught one ball for six yards while seeing eight snaps on offense.
Roberts is one of the league's best in the return game, and though he missed the first two contests with a quadriceps injury, he's on his way to boosting the Bills' special teams in his first season with the team. He'll see nearly all the returns from here on out, while being sprinkled in occasionally on offense.
Roberts, returning from a quadriceps injury, made his Bills debut Sunday. He returned one kickoff for 23 yards and three punts for four yards.
Roberts only saw two snaps on offense, somewhat disappointing after his strong summer, though the team seemed to move on without him offensively following the untimely injury. He looked to be getting re-acclimated with things on punt returns, visibly out of sync with the team's blocking. Given Roberts' fine return skills though, there's no reason he won't start ripping off better returns now that he's seemingly past the injury.
Roberts (quadriceps) was a full participant in Friday's practice.
Roberts was limited in practice Wednesday and Thursday, but he appears to have gotten over his quadriceps issue. He'll look to make an impact in the return game versus Cincinnati on Sunday, as he'll likely serve as the primary guy on both kickoff and punt returns.
