Bills WR T.J. Graham was sidelined with a slight groin pull in Monday’s practice and did not participate in practice Tuesday. Head coach Doug Marrone is not taking any chances with the speed receiver as he intends at this point to sit the wideout for Friday’s preseason game against Minnesota.
“I don’t foresee him (playing) this week,” said Marrone. “I think tomorrow he’ll start running a little bit. I think when you get those types of things, little pulls and little strains, once you get them out there running it becomes how it feels when they’re
running full speed. That’s why it’s tough to gauge when he’s coming back, but right now in my mind I’m thinking it’ll be after this game.”
Graham will join Stevie Johnson on the sidelines as non-participants in Friday’s preseason game. Brad Smith is also unlikely to play, which will afford some of the younger receivers more opportunity to play.
