09/17/18DBTaron JohnsonShoulderQUESTIONABLEJohnson (shoulder) missed practice for the third straight day Friday and will not play Sunday against the Chargers, the Bills' official site reports.

Although they don't have the exact same role, this could be the impetus to get veteran Vontae Davis back in the lineup. Davis was scratched in Week 1, and when Johnson was sidelined, the Bills had a tough time moving the pieces in their secondary around.

09/17/18DLShaq LawsonHamstringQUESTIONABLELawson (hamstring) missed practice for the third straight day Friday and will not play Sunday against the Chargers, the Bills' official site reports.

Even though he's not a true starter, Lawson had earned extra playing time with a good summer and preseason, but he'll have to take a step back for at least one game. Jerry Hughes and Trent Murphy will be counted on for more snaps as the Bills try to stop the Chargers' potent offense.

09/17/18WRRay-Ray McCloudKneeQUESTIONABLEMcCloud (knee) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Chargers, the Bills' official site reports.

The rookie will have to wait until at least Week 3 to make his pro debut, while the Bills will operate against the Bolts with just four healthy wideouts.

09/16/18DBPhillip GainesElbowQUESTIONABLEGaines dislocated his elbow in Sunday's loss to the Chargers, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports.

A dislocated elbow can take several weeks to fully heal, but the team is hopeful Gaines will be able to play through the injury next week against the Vikings. With Vontae Davis retiring, Gaines figures to step into a starting role so long as he's able to play, not to mention the depleted Bills simply need able bodies at the cornerback position.

09/16/18RBTaiwan JonesHeadQUESTIONABLECoach Sean McDermott said Monday that Jones did not suffer a concussion during Sunday's loss to the Chargers and had his head "bruised and cut up" from taking a hit after his helmet had previously fallen off, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Jones doesn't factor much into the offense, but he is a strong special teams player. Moreover, with LeSean McCoy (ribs) in pain and perhaps limited heading into Week 3, it'd help the team and the running back depth if Jones can suit up this week against Minnesota.

09/16/18RBLeSean McCoyRibsQUESTIONABLEMcCoy has cracked rib cartilage following a hit in Sunday's game and should be considered questionable for the Bills' upcoming Week 3 contest at Minnesota, a source told Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Schefter states that McCoy has had this injury before and even if the Bills take the safe route and sit him out against the Vikings, it's not expected to be a long-term thing. The running back has also showed an ability to play through pain throughout his career, though we'll know more as practice ramps up later in the week. McCoy owners or non-McCoy opportunists should be looking at the waiver wire for Marcus Murphy and Chris Ivory in the meantime.

08/25/18RBAaron GreenUndisclosedQUESTIONABLEGreen (undisclosed) agreed to an injury settlement and was waived from the Bills' injured reserve list Tuesday.

It still isn't clear what sort of injury Green is dealing with. In any case, he'll now become a free agent, assuming he passes through waivers unclaimed.
