Long (finger) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Bills.
Long has battled finger issues for a good chunk of the season and was unable to finish last Sunday's loss to the Dolphins. Jonotthan Harrision should grab the start at center with Long unlikely to play against Buffalo.
Long sustained a finger injury during Sunday's 13-6 loss to the Dolphins, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.
Long exited the Week 9 loss due to a finger injury and not for performance-related reasons, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports. It remains to be seen whether the center's current injury is related to the finger issue that limited Long in early October, or whether his Week 11 availability is in danger.
Long (lower leg) is active for Sunday's contest against Chicago.
Long's status comes as a bit of a surprise after he was listed as doubtful following Friday's practice. He'll continue serving as the starting center, with Jonotthan Harrison set to fill in if Long experiences any setbacks.
Long (lower leg) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Bears.
Long spent the beginning of October nursing a finger injury, and now appears to be impeded by a lower leg injury suffered during a loss to the Vikings in Week 7. If the fifth-year pro is unable to suit up, Jonotthan Harrison will serve as Gang Green's starting center against the Bears on Sunday.
Long suffered a lower-leg injury against the Vikings on Sunday, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.
Long has already seen his snaps decrease in recent weeks due to a finger injury, and this news doesn't bode well for the former third-round pick. The extent of Long's absence, if any, has not been revealed so expect another update throughout the week.
