The Bills were without three offensive starters on the practice field Wednesday. And a key defensive starter was limited with a hamstring injury.

Cordy Glenn, Charles Clay and Sammy Watkins were all sidelined with injuries. Moving forward it appears Watkins will have a reduced practice workload for the rest of the season in an effort to keep his ailing foot as fresh as possible for game days.

“He’s practicing once a week and you can only do so much,” said new offensive coordinator Anthony Lynn of Watkins in an appearance on the John Murphy Show Wednesday.

Head coach Rex Ryan said at the beginning of the week that they were hopeful Cordy Glenn could return from his ankle injury and play Sunday. The chances of that happening will be better determined based on Glenn’s level of practice participation Thursday.

Ronald Darby’s hamstring injury did not surface in the game on Sunday according to head coach Rex Ryan, but it was enough to keep Darby from doing much at all in practice Wednesday.

“He got through the game and finished the game,” said Ryan of Darby. “Hopefully it’s not a serious injury.”

If Darby can’t go on Sunday, veteran Corey White is expected to step in at cornerback.
