Bills head coach Sean McDermott said on Wednesday that he expected CB EJ Gaines to be fit to start on Sunday at Carolina, despite sustaining a shoulder contusion in Week 1 that forced him from the game. That contention was reinforced by Gaines’ full participation in practice on Thursday, but another cornerback was added to the injury report.
Gaines was just a limited participant in Wednesday’s practice. Coming back and practicing fully Thursday is a great sign.
“I’m feeling good,” said Gaines. “As far as Sunday that’s kind of up to the coaches based on how I look out there, but yeah I felt good and I’m feeling better every day.”
While the Gaines news was good, fellow CB Leonard Johnson was added to the injury report Thursday with a quad injury. He was limited in practice Thursday.
