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.
Dawkins (hip) was spotted in full pads during Thursday's practice working with team trainers, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com 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.
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.
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.
Dawkins was held out of Wednesday's practice with an illness, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com 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.
