Streater suffered a toe injury in Thursday's preseason game against the Eagles, Sal Capaccio of WGR 550 in Buffalo reports.
The former Raider had an impressive start to the game Thursday, nabbing both of his targets for 40 yards before being felled by a toe injury. The Bills did not disclose the severity of Streater's issue after the game, so his level of participation in practice in the coming days will be worth monitoring.
In the early stages of training camp, Streater had been working his way up the depth chart to the point where Andre Holmes' job as the No. 2 wideout was already being questioned, but the Boldin signing really muddies the waters. For now, it's probably best to see if Streater can secure a spot on the team before making any sort of investment in him.
Streater worked with the first team briefly during Monday's training-camp session when No. 2 receiver Andre Holmes needed a breather, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports.
Streater may be the team's most impressive receiver so far, and the journeyman looks to be on the right side of the cut line for a roster spot. If everything went his way during the preseason and Holmes continues to underwhelm, it's not unthinkable for Streater to enter the regular season as a starter. Rookie Zay Jones is also in the picture.
Streater, a six-year veteran signed just a few months ago, is currently around sixth on the depth chart, but outside of Sammy Watkins and maybe rookie Zay Jones, no spot is really secure. At 6-foot-3, Streater has the size the team has been looking for in its passing game, and while it would take a lot for him to have fantasy value, he seems to be making his case for a role with the team.
Streater, now 29 years old, spent just one season in San Francisco where he caught 18 passes for 191 yards and two touchdowns on 27 targets throughout his 2016 campaign. The Bills have already added to their receiving corps earlier this offseason, drafting Zay Jones (knee) in the second round in addition to the signing of Andre Holmes from Oakland. Streater figures to compete for the No. 4 spot in the pecking order, with Philly Brown and Brandon Tate -- among others -- also in the picture.
