McCloud was unable to haul in his lone target during Sunday's 41-9 loss to Chicago.
The rookie has recorded multiple touches just once this season in a Buffalo offense which is hard to find value in. Nathan Peterman threw three more picks Sunday in the comedy of errors that Buffalo has started at quarterback. Derek Anderson (concussion) might be the guy in Week 10, but a trip to a Jets defense among the best in the league at generating turnovers likely makes McCloud a nonfactor.
McCloud (undisclosed) was removed from the injury report and will be available to play Monday against the Patriots.
The rookie didn't make the trip to Indianapolis in Week 7 because of an undisclosed reason. It's at least worth noting the Bills pulled the rookie from return duties after he fumbled twice on returns in Week 6 against the Texans. McCloud and the team have seemed to move past the issues, but it's unclear what sort of role McCloud will have Monday.
McCloud didn't make the trip for an undisclosed non-injury reason. Specifics of the issue remain unclear as the 22-year-old will hopefully be ready for a return in Week 8 against New England.
Armstrong caught his lone target during Sunday's 20-13 loss to Houston, gaining two yards. He fumbled twice during the contest, losing one.
McCloud had two big special-teams snafus early during Sunday's game, fumbling the opening kickoff -- which Buffalo recovered -- and then muffing a punt that set up the Texans to score the game's first touchdown. On offense, he has yet to gain 10 yards in game so far. With Buffalo entering quarterbacking uncertainty for the next few weeks, McCloud's value should drop even lower despite Sunday's matchup against an Indianapolis pass defense that ranks in the bottom third of the league.
McCloud recovered from a knee injury and made his NFL debut in Sunday's upset win over Minnesota, catching his only target for six yards while returning one punt for 13 yards.
McCloud saw action on 14 offensive snaps, but it's likely special teams where the rookie will make his most immediate mark. Considering McCloud was the only Buffalo player to return a punt Sunday, it looks like that's his job to lose for the foreseeable future.
