Beasley played through a fractured fibula during the playoffs, Michael Giardi of NFL Network reports.
The Bills listed Beasley with a knee injury from Week 17 through the AFC Championship Game, never revealing any details. The slot receiver missed only one game (the regular-season finale) but said the injury bothered him during the first two rounds of the playoffs. Beasley felt better during the AFCCG loss to Kansas City, and he expects to have a normal offseason after catching seven passes in his final appearance of the campaign. The 31-year-old should be safe in Buffalo for the third season of his four-year, $29 million contract, considering he finished 2020 with career highs for catches (82), receiving yards (967), targets (107), yards per catch (11.8), yards per target (9.0) and catch rate (76.6 percent).
Beasley caught seven of nine targets for 88 yards in Sunday's 38-24 loss to the Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game.
Beasley finished as the Bills' leading receiver on a night where the usually dominant duo of Josh Allen and Stefon Diggs were held in check. The slot specialist took another step forward in his second season with Buffalo, setting new career bests in receptions (82) and yardage (967) while hitting pay dirt four times across 15 contests during the regular season. Even with consistent improvements, the veteran receiver was only a must-roster player in PPR formats, offering a high floor and consistent targets to offset a lack of touchdowns. The four-year, $29 million contract Beasley signed back in 2019 is starting to look like a bargain for one the game's top slot receivers.
Beasley (knee) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game in Kansas City, Matthew Fairburn of The Athletic reports.
Beasley has been dealing with the same knee injury since late December, missing Week 17 before catching seven passes for only 57 yards in two playoff games. A return to full participation Friday suggests he'll be fine for his usual role, and he could even see a few extra snaps if No. 4 receiver Gabriel Davis (questionable - ankle) isn't able to play.
Beasley (knee) was a limited practice participant Thursday.
The Wednesday practice report was Buffalo's first one without Beasley's name on it since Week 16, but it turns out he's still dealing with the same knee injury. His Friday practice status bears watching, as a mid-week downgrade isn't ideal. Isaiah McKenzie took most of the slot snaps when Beasley missed Week 17, which was also the first 100-yard game of Gabriel Davis' career. Davis is now dealing with an ankle injury, missing practice Wednesday and Thursday.
Beasley did not haul in either of his targets during Saturday's 17-3 divisional-round win against the Ravens.
Beasley was limited throughout the practice week because of a knee injury, but he was able to suit up against Baltimore to remain with just one game absence on the season. Buffalo didn't lean on the veteran wideout, instead distributing 22 of 30 WR targets to Stefon Diggs and John Brown. A dud against the Ravens marks Beasley's first no-catch performance of the 2020 campaign, though it's notable he was capable of pushing through the same knee issue en route to seven catches and 57 yards in the wild-card round.
Beasley (knee) practiced on a limited basis for the third straight time Thursday but does not have an injury designation for Saturday's game against the Ravens, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
The valuable slot receiver is clearly playing below 100 percent, but it's also pretty much a certainty that he'll be out there Saturday for the primetime Saturday night matchup.
Beasley (knee) was listed as a limited participant for Wednesday's practice session.
The Bills are taking things slowly with their top slot receiver while he manages the knee issue, and it wouldn't be surprising if he was limited again Thursday in the final practice session of the week. Beasley seems headed for a questionable designation for the divisional-round game versus the Ravens, but he should be ready to go after previously playing through the injury in last week's wild-card win over the Colts.
Beasley was listed as a limited participant Tuesday due to a knee injury.
The knee issue is what had Beasley as a major question mark entering Saturday's wild-card win over the Colts, yet he gutted it out and caught seven balls in the victory. Beasley didn't practice at all until late in the week last week, so this news bodes well for the team, even though the tough receiver is obviously playing banged up, and it's reportedly more than just the knee issue.
Beasley (knee) caught all seven of his targets for 57 yards in Saturday's 27-24 wild-card round win over the Colts.
Beasley was a game-time decision but gutted it out and played well, leading the team in catches. The veteran slot receiver will look to heal up further by next week's AFC divisional round game, and he should continue to serve as a security blanket for quarterback Josh Allen in the pass-heavy Bills offense.
Beasley (knee) is active for Saturday's game against the Colts.
Beasley emerged from Week 16 with a knee injury that ultimately kept him sidelined in the regular-season finale. As the Bills prepared for the wild-card round, he didn't practice until Thursday, when he logged a limited session. That appearance was enough for Beasley to join Stefon Diggs (oblique) on the active roster Saturday as Buffalo takes on the Colts' 20th-ranked pass defense (241.6 yards per game).
Beasley (knee) is expected to play in Saturday's wild-card game against the Colts, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.
Both Beasley and Stefon Diggs (oblique) were listed as questionable following the team's final injury report, but it seems as if the Bills will have their full complement of weapons available ahead of the pivotal playoff match. Expect to see the team confirm the wide receiver's availability closer to the 1:05 p.m. ET kickoff.
Beasley (knee) is listed as questionable for Saturday's wild-card matchup with the Colts.
Beasley made his first appearance on the practice field in two weeks Thursday, logging a limited session. There's a cloud hanging over his head regarding his availability this weekend, which also can be said for Stefon Diggs (oblique). The status of both will be confirmed about 90 minutes before Saturday's 1:05 p.m. ET kickoff.
Beasley (knee) was spotted at practice Thursday, Sal Capaccio of WGR Sports Radio 550 Buffalo reports.
As was Stefon Diggs (oblique), with the duo's status for Wild-Card Weekend likely to be solidified later Thursday, when the Bills' injury report for Saturday's game against the Colts is released. Prior to his return to the field Thursday, Beasley had logged consecutive 'DNP' listings.
Beasley (knee) didn't practice Wednesday.
Beasley and Stefon Diggs (oblique) both sat out Wednesday's practice. Though the Bills remain optimistic Diggs will be available Saturday's wild-card matchup against Indianapolis, Beasley's status remains murkier. The veteran slot man hasn't practiced in any capacity since injuring his knee in a Dec. 28 win over the Patriots.
Beasley (knee) did not participate in Tuesday's walkthrough practice.
Coach Sean McDermott called the valuable slot man "week-to-week" in his Monday statements, so Beasley's status for Saturday's playoff opener is in serious jeopardy at this stage, a belief augmented by the team signing several receivers to its practice squad the past few days. If Beasley's knee does start to rally, the fact that the Bills play the opening game of this weekend's six-game playoff slate adds one final challenge, though perhaps that at least will make the decision on whether to use Beasley easier for playoff pool managers.
Coach Sean McDermott said Monday that Beasley (knee) is still considered week-to-week, Matthew Fairburn of The Athletic reports.
McDermott also said that the Bills will "see what tomorrow brings" with regard to Beasley's health, a hint that his status for Saturday's wild-card matchup against the Colts could come down to how much he's able to do in practice. Gabriel Davis once again would stand to join Stefon Diggs and John Brown in three-receiver sets if Beasley can't suit up this weekend.
The Bills have ruled Beasley (knee) out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.
Beasley wasn't able to practice in any capacity Wednesday through Friday, effectively sealing his fate for the regular-season finale. Fortunately for the Bills, their receiving corps will be fortified by the return of John Brown, who will suit up Sunday after missing the previous five games with an ankle injury followed by a short stint on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Look for Brown, Stefon Diggs and Gabriel Davis to operate as the team's starting receivers Week 17, though all three could have their workloads managed in the event Buffalo -- which is locked in as the AFC's No. 2 or 3 seed -- elects to rest players to some degree with an eye on entering the postseason at optimal health.
Beasley (knee) won't take part in Friday's practice, Maddy Glab of the Bills' official site reports.
The 31-year-old has been unable to practice all week after picking up the knee injury during the Week 16 win over the Patriots, putting his availability in doubt for Sunday's matchup with the Dolphins. The Bills previously labeled Beasley week-to-week, so he seems unlikely to be available for the final game of the regular season. John Brown was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, and he'll likely step back in as Buffalo's No. 2 wide receiver this weekend.
Beasley (knee) didn't practice Thursday.
With Beasley more week-to-week than day-to-day at this stage, he could be ruled out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins as soon as Friday. If that ends up being the case, added Week 17 opportunities would be available for some combo of Gabriel Davis, Isaiah McKenzie and Andre Roberts.
Beasley was listed as a non-participant on Wednesday's practice report due to a knee issue, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
The Bills are labeling Beasley as week-to-week with the injury, so at this stage, the wideout appears questionable -- at best -- for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. If Beasley misses the contest, added opportunities would be available for the likes of Gabriel Davis, Isaiah McKenzie and Andre Roberts.
