Though Kyle Williams (hamstring) is the headliner of the nicked up Bills this week, there’s another key player that was unable to practice fully on Thursday in FB Corey McIntyre.
“Corey was limited in what he could do out there,” said head coach Chan Gailey after practice Thursday. “He wasn’t full speed. Hopefully he can be back by Sunday.”
If McIntyre’s ankle injury, which he sustained in the Detroit game last Sunday keeps him out of this weekend’s game, Buffalo may have to make a move with respect to their roster. McIntyre is the only true fullback on the 53-man roster. They have Jehuu Caulcrick on the practice squad, but he’s only been with the team for a little more than a week.
McIntyre is also a valuable special teams contributor as he’s second on the team in special teams tackles.
On the plus side, Cordaro Howard (shoulder) practiced for the first time in over a week as he tries to come back from a shoulder injury suffered in Week 9. He was limited on Thursday.
