McCloud sat out the Bills' season-opening 47-3 loss to the Ravens after failing to practice at any point last week and isn't starting off Week 2 preparations on a positive note. He'll have two more opportunities to prove the knee injury he suffered in the preseason is behind him, but McCloud likely won't have much of a role on offense even if he's cleared to play in Sunday's game against the Chargers.
The Bills kept five other receivers on the final roster, all of whom are healthy, so the offense won't suffer at all. However, McCloud is expected to have a big role in the return game, so the team will need to look elsewhere for the contest against the Ravens.
McCloud injured his knee on a punt return during Thursday's preseason finale against the Bears. The sixth-round rookie out of Clemson managed to make the Bills' 53-man roster, but will need to recover promptly to hold on to his position as a depth receiver. It remains to be seen what sort of role, if any, McCloud will have in Buffalo's starting offense.
This could be horrible timing for the sixth-round rookie from Clemson, as he's thought to be in a close fight for one of the final receiving spots.
