Morse agreed to restructure his contract with the Bills on Tuesday, Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN reports.
Morse signed a four-year, $44.5 million deal with the Bills in March of 2019 and injuries have caused him to come nowhere near that type of value since. The Bills like what he brings to the offensive line, however, and don't really have a better long-term plan at center, so the restructure allows the team to keep Morse in the fold while perhaps having enough cap space left to take a run at keeping at least one of his fellow starters, Daryl Williams or Jon Feliciano.
Morse will start at center Sunday against the Chargers, Sal Capaccio of WGR 550 Sports Radio reports.
Morse was sidelined for multiple contests prior to the Bills' Week 11 bye, but he's now slated to resume a full workload Sunday. Buffalo's offensive line still isn't at 100 percent, however, as Cody Ford was recently ruled out for the remainder of the season with a torn meniscus.
Morse did not see the field Sunday against the Cardinals even though he's cleared the concussion protocol, Sal Capaccio of WGR Sports Radio 550 Buffalo reports.
The Bills didn't give Morse a $44.5 million contract so he can sit on the bench, so we suppose he either didn't get his practice reps up to snuff last week or that the team was protecting its prized lineman ahead of the bye. Expect to see Morse as part of the plan once the Bills kick things up again Week 12.
Morse, who missed the Week 9 victory over Seattle due to a concussion, practiced fully for the second straight day Thursday.
Barring anything unforeseen Friday, Morse will be ready to resume his normal starting center role Sunday in Arizona. Given that he's one of the league's better interior linemen when healthy, his presence will go a long way toward Buffalo's offense trying to keep up with Arizona's high-powered group.
Morse (concussion) was a full participant during Wednesday's practice.
Morse suffered the concussion in Week 8 against the Patriots, and he's appears to have cleared the league's concussion protocol. Now that he appears fully healthy, expect Morse to return to his usual starting role as the team's center for Sunday's game against Arizona.
Coach Sean McDermott said Friday that Morse (concussion) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Maddy Glab of the Bills' official site reports.
Morse will need to fully clear the league's five-step concussion protocol before being cleared to retake the field. The Bills will likely either roll with Jon Feliciano or Ryan Bates at center for one more game, though if starting guard Cody Ford (questionable, knee) is able to return this week, that allows the team to have more flexibility in trying to replace Morse.
Morse missed Wednesday's practice due to a concussion.
It would have been a big surprise had the starting center practiced this soon following the concussion suffered in Sunday's win against the Patriots. Morse will have to get through the protocol over the next three days to be an option for this week's game against the Seahawks.
Morse won't return to Sunday's game against the Patriots due to a concussion.
Morse made an early exit from Sunday's contest and won't return after the concussion was confirmed. Ryan Bates will work at center for the Bills in his absence.
Morse left Sunday's game against the Patriots to be evaluated for a head injury.
The obvious concern is a concussion, and it's likely Morse will need to clear the concussion protocol before retaking the field. Ryan Bates is next up at center for the Bills.
Morse (ankle) was listed as a full participant on Wednesday's injury report.
Despite exiting last weekend's game against New England with an ankle injury, Morse's full participation estimate (the Bills didn't hold a practice on the holiday) suggests he'll be good to go for Sunday's season finale against the Jets.
Morse left Saturday's loss to the Patriots in the fourth quarter with what appeared to be a lower-body injury.
No reports have surfaced yet as to what specifically caused the starting center to leave the game, though he was unable to return. Jon Feliciano was forced to kick over from right guard to center, while reserve Spencer Long filled in the vacant spot. The Bills are locked into the No. 5 spot in the AFC, meaning Morse's availability for Week 17 isn't a huge deal, but he's pretty important to the team's chances of making a playoff run.
Morse (finger) is active for Thursday's contest against the Cowboys, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
Morse has been limited in practice due to a finger injury that knocked him out of last week's win over Denver, but he'll play through the issue versus the Cowboys. The starting center's availability will be a notable boost for Buffalo's offensive line, assuming he's able to snap the ball properly.
Morse (finger) practiced on a limited basis for a second straight day Wednesday and is listed as questionable for Thursday's game in Dallas, The Buffalo News reports.
The potential problem lies in Morse's ability to snap the football as the center, so we imagine he'll test things out prior to the afternoon game and then consult with the team to make a decision. John Feliciano would switch over to center if Morse can't go, while Spencer Long would likely step into Feliciano's usual starting guard spot.
Morse, who left Sunday's game with a hand injury, was listed as limited on Monday's estimated practice report.
The fact that the starting center is listed as limited is a good sign, but because it was just a walk-through session, we won't have a good gauge on his likelihood for the Thanksgiving Day game against the Cowboys until the Bills get out on the practice field Tuesday. Morse was limited to just 16 snaps in Sunday's win.
Morse (finger) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Raiders.
Morse was shaken up on a play in the second quarter but walked off under his own power. With Morse sidelined, Jon Feliciano shifted to center, and Spencer Long entered as the right guard.
Morse (ankle) returned to a full practice Wednesday following the team's bye week, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
Morse left the team's Week 5 win over the Titans early, though the Bills never felt the injury was serious. It looks like the starting center will be ready to resume his normal duties as the lynchpin of the line Sunday against Miami.
Coach Sean McDermott said Monday that Morse's ankle injury -- which forced him out of Sunday's win over Tennessee -- is not considered serious and the center could have gone back out there against the Titans in an emergency situation.
With the Bills on bye in Week 6, it sounds like Morse should be expected to go in a home game Week 7 vs. the Dolphins. He's the straw the stirs the drink on the new-look offensive line, one that's performed far better to date than the 2018 group.
Morse (ankle) is questionable to return to Sunday's game versus the Titans.
Morse left the game and had tests performed on the sideline before being carted to the locker room.
Morse passed through the league's concussion protocol Thursday, Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN.com reports.
Morse practiced fully Monday as well, even though he had yet to pass concussion protocol. Now healthy, the 27-year-old seems poised to start at center for Buffalo after starting in 49 games for Kansas City over the last four seasons. He's by far the best interior offensive lineman on the Bills, though unfamiliarity with quarterback Josh Allen -- Morse didn't play a single preseason snap -- could be an issue for the first game or two.
Morse (concussion) was a full participant in practice Monday but remains in the concussion protocol, Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN.com reports.
Louis-Jacques also notes that it is unlikely Morse would play in Buffalo's preseason finale Thursday either way. The 27-year-old has a history of concussions, so it makes sense that the team would exercise caution with Morse, who started in 49 games for Kansas City over four seasons.
