Bills' Dion Dawkins: Ready for Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dawkins (shoulder) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Raiders.

The 26-year-old sustained the injury during last Sunday's win over the Rams and began the week not practicing, but he progressed to full practice participation Friday to avoid the questionable tag. Dawkins should post up in his usual spot at left tackle versus Las Vegas.

Bills' Dion Dawkins: Misses Week 4 opening session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dawkins (shoulder) did not practice Wednesday after hurting himself in Sunday's win over the Rams.

Dawkins ended up missing eight of the team's 62 offensive plays in the win. The Bills have done a good job protecting an incredibly effective Josh Allen so far this season, so their left tackle's status for Sunday's game in Las Vegas is something that should be monitored.

Bills' Dion Dawkins: Gets hurt Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dawkins suffered a shoulder injury during Sunday's game against the Rams.

Dawkins suffered the injury late in the fourth quarter, so he failed to return to the contest. His practice status Tuesday and Wednesday will paint a clearer picture on his chances to suit up for next week's game against the Raiders.

Bills' Dion Dawkins: Staying in Buffalo long term
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dawkins signed a four-year contract extension with the Bills on Thursday.

One day after the team extended its coach for the next several years, the Bills decided to do the same with their starting left tackle. The Bills are well-positioned to have long-term success in the AFC East -- especially with the Patriots going through some changes -- so locking up as many pieces as they can for the next 4-5 year stretch seems like prudent planning.

Bills' Dion Dawkins: Healthy to enter regular season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dawkins (hip) participated in Wednesday's practice.

Buffalo's best lineman by a fair margin, Dawkins' continued health is key to the performance of every skill position player on the Bills. Dawkins will work to protect starting quarterback Nathan Peterman during Sunday's season-opener against the Ravens.

Bills' Dion Dawkins: Misses preseason contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dawkins (hip) missed Sunday's preseason game against the Bengals.

We mention this not so much to inform the public that an offensive lineman missed a meaningless game, but more that those owning any Buffalo skill position players should be wary if Dawkins misses any time this season. The line was a disaster for most of the game in what was supposed to be a rehearsal for the regular season, and clearly it's a pretty big step down when the team's best lineman is not out there. Remember also the Bills lost three O-line starters from last season. On the bright side, no one has indicated yet that Dawkins' injury is more than a day-to-day thing.

Bills' Dion Dawkins: Works with trainers on side
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dawkins (hip) was spotted in full pads during Thursday's practice working with team trainers, Mike Rodak of reports.

Dawkins missed Wednesday's practice with the hip injury but a one-day absence before working with trainers suggests the injury isn't of the severe variety. In all likelihood, Dawkins figures to be a game-time decision for the team's dress rehearsal preseason contest Sunday.

Bills' Dion Dawkins: Hip injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dawkins has a hip injury and is listed as day-to-day, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

The Bills already lost three starting offensive linemen during the offseason for various reasons, leaving Dawkins as the best remaining returnee, probably by a good margin. The options behind him at left tackle are a steep downgrade, so the team is clearly hoping it's truly a day-to-day situation.

Bills' Dion Dawkins: Not on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dawkins (illness) is not listed on the injury report ahead of Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

Dawkins did not practice Wednesday due to an illness, but it looks like he's put that behind him and should be a full go for Sunday's matchup in Kansas City.

Bills' Dion Dawkins: Dealing with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dawkins was held out of Wednesday's practice with an illness, Mike Rodak of reports.

If Dawkins is able to shake off the illness and return to practice Thursday or Friday, he'll likely receive clearance to suit up Sunday against the Chiefs. He could pick up another start at left tackle again if Cordy Glenn (foot/ankle) can't play.

Bills' Dion Dawkins: Picked by Bills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bills selected Dawkins in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 63rd overall.

A huge but athletic mauler who played left tackle at Temple, Dawkins was generally projected to move inside to guard at the NFL level. NFL Network's Mike Mayock speculated that Dawkins may be a right tackle for the Bills, however. With 35-inch arms and a 7.3-second three-cone drill, Dawkins has the length and athleticism to do it.
