Jefferson (knee) is active for Sunday's game versus the Patriots.
Jefferson practiced fully Friday and avoided a setback over the weekend, so he'll suit up for Sunday's divisional clash. The 27-year-old could start at defensive tackle because Vernon Butler (groin) is inactive. Jefferson has played at least 50 percent of the defensive snaps in six games this season, but he doesn't carry much IDP value with just 15 tackles, a sack and a pass breakup through seven games.
Jefferson (knee) practiced fully Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots.
This is a big improvement from Thursday, when Jefferson was unable to practice at all, though sometimes these things are by design for Sean McDermott's veteran players. Assuming Jefferson can go Sunday, he could be in line for some extra work if fellow defensive tackle Vernon Butler (groin) is unable to go.
Jefferson (foot) practiced fully Thursday after missing Wednesday's session.
Jefferson is a key part of Buffalo's defensive line rotation and looks he should be fine as the team tries to move to 4-0 with a victory this week in Las Vegas.
Jefferson (foot) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice.
This news is a bit concerning since Jefferson underwent surgery in January to repair a Jones fracture in his foot, although there's no indication that his current injury is related. It's something to keep an eye on, though, as Jefferson has started and played at least 63 percent of snaps in every game this season.
Jefferson (illness) wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report and is expected to play in Sunday's game versus the Jets.
Jefferson underwent surgery in January to repair a Jones fracture, and he wasn't healthy entering camp. Once he shook that off, Jefferson fell ill. However, he appears back at full health heading into his first season with the Bills. The team has a loaded defensive front, but Jefferson could be in line for a decent workload anyway since he can play both defensive end and defensive tackle.
Jefferson missed Monday's practice session due to illness, Jourdon LaBarber of the Bills' official site reports.
While the illness is not thought to be COVID-19 related, Jefferson has already missed a short amount of time with a foot injury. With no preseason games with his new teammates, it would help if he can finish the last couple weeks of practices on a healthy run.
Jefferson (foot) participated in Wednesday's practice, Mark Gaughan of The Buffalo News reports.
Jefferson dealt with foot soreness last week, but it looks like the depth defensive tackle has already managed to return to full health. He could be a significant rotational player for the Bills' defensive front.
Jefferson (foot) didn't practice Wednesday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
Coach Sean McDermott labeled the injury as "soreness," so it sounds like Jefferson is dealing with something that might be on the mild side. Jefferson joined the Bills on a two-year pact this offseason after totaling 26 tackles, 3.5 sacks and three pass breakups over 14 games with Seattle in 2019.
Jefferson (foot) is expected to fill a rotational role on a Buffalo defensive line that includes Star Lotulelei, Ed Oliver, Vernon Butler, Jerry Hughes, Mario Addison and rookie second-rounder A.J. Epenesa, Maddy Glab of the Bills' official site reports.
The 27-year-old may end up seeing fewer snaps compared to his 2019 campaign with the Seahawks, but that doesn't necessarily mean he'll see a drop in production. Jefferson had career highs in tackles (26) and sacks (3.5) last season and suffered a fractured foot in the final game of the year, but the subsequent surgery shouldn't impact his status for 2020.
Jefferson (foot) agreed to terms on a two-year contract with the Bills on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
The Bills choose to beef up their defensive front by adding an established veteran in Jefferson. Although Jefferson underwent surgery this offseason to repair a fractured foot he suffered during the playoffs, he was only facing about an eight-week return after surgery Jan. 15. The 26-year-old finished the regular season with a career-high 26 tackles to go with 3.5 sacks and he added two more sacks in the wild-card win over Philadelphia. With former Bill Jordan Phillips expected to head to Arizona, Jefferson will fill a key rotational role along with Ed Oliver, Star Lotulelei, Harrison Phillips and fellow new signee Vernon Butler.
Jefferson will undergo surgery in the near future to repair the Jones fracture he suffered in last weekend's divisional-round loss to the Packers, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Jefferson's injury will require eight weeks of recovery, so he'll be healthy just in time for free agency in March. The Seahawks would like to retain Jefferson if the price is right, as the 26-year-old proved effective in a utility role in 2019, lining up at defensive tackle but also working as an edge rusher. He finished the regular season with a career-high 26 tackles to go with 3.5 sacks, and he added two more sacks in the wild-card win over the Eagles. His potential role for Seattle in 2020 would likely depend on whether the team retains Jadeveon Clowney (core).
Jefferson will undergo surgery to address his fractured foot in the near future, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.
The 26-year-old sustained the broken foot during Sunday's divisional-round loss to the Packers and was limited to 29 defensive snaps, his second-lowest snap total of the season. A specific recovery timeline likely won't be known until after he undergoes the procedure, but Jefferson will have until mid-March to recover before the official start of free agency.
Jefferson broke his foot in Sunday's 28-23 loss to the Packers in the divisional round, Josina Anderson of ESPN reports.
Jefferson told Anderson he'll go get further testing if need be. This loss ended Seattle's season, so the defensive lineman should have plenty of time to heal up before NFL training camps open in July. Jefferson, who registered 3.5 sacks and 26 tackles in 14 regular-season contests, is set to become a free agent in March.
Jefferson (foot) is questionable to return to Sunday's divisional round against the Packers, Gregg Bell of the Tacoma News Tribune reports.
Jefferson was spotted on crutches on the sideline, which doesn't bode well for his chances of returning to this one. There's a good chance this injury is related to the ankle injury Jefferson was battling during the week.
Jefferson (ankle) is officially active for Sunday's matchup versus the Packers.
After practicing in a limited fashion Thursday and Friday, Jefferson will be ready to rock for Sunday's playoff game. With the Maryland product suiting up, he's expected to assume his normal depth role on the interior of the defensive line.
Jefferson (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Packers, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
Jefferson practiced in limited fashion Thursday and Friday and appears to be a true game-time decision at this point. Bryan Mone would be the only interior depth available on the defensive line if Jefferson is unable to give it a go.
Jefferson (oblique) logged a full practice Friday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
Jefferson has been dealing with an oblique injury since mid-October but appears ready to suit up Monday. The fourth-year interior lineman played a large part in Seattle's defensive scheme prior to his injury and should play a key role in slowing down the 49ers' high-octane run offense in Week 10.
Jefferson (oblique) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.
Jefferson has been logging a starter's snap count this year at defensive tackle, but his ability to play all four positions on the Seahawks' defensive front gives the team additional versatility. The 26-year-old's absence will afford second-year pro Poona Ford a start Sunday.
Jefferson (oblique) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's tilt against the Buccaneers, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.
Jefferson missed the Week 8 win over the Falcons due to the oblique injury and looks on track to miss at least one more game on account of the issue. Al Woods and Poona Ford should pick up some additional snaps on the interior of the defensive line if Jefferson ends up being inactive for the second straight week.
Jefferson (oblique) did not practice Thursday, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.
Jefferson hasn't practiced in any capacity this week. He appears to be trending towards missing a second consecutive game, in which case Al Woods could see a larger role on defense during Sunday's tilt against the Buccaneers.
