Bills injury report

Posted by Chris Brown on November 13, 2013 – 4:10 pm

With Robert Woods already ruled out for Sunday’s game by head coach Doug Marrone, here is how the rest of the Bills injury report is shaping up.

Marrone said it’s a wait and see on Stevie Johnson, but that Searcy and Kyle Williams should be good to go Sunday.

“Stevie I’ll know more about that,” said Marrone. “Searcy I think will be practicing (Thursday) and Kyle is on his regular schedule.”

Bills official injury report

Posted by Chris Brown on October 23, 2013 – 6:30 pm

Here’s the Bills official injury report for Wednesday. It only had players who did not participate at all. That list included Buffalo’s top two tailbacks in Fred Jackson (knee) and C.J. Spiller (ankle). As we reported on Buffalobills.com late today, Spiller is again preparing to play Sunday.

EJ out, everyone else probable

Posted by Chris Brown on October 18, 2013 – 12:31 pm

The Bills are getting healthier by the week. Even though EJ Manuel is out for Sunday’s game and several after that, the rest of the players on Buffalo’s injured list are all probable for Sunday’s game.

That according to head coach Doug Marrone following Friday’s practice. Here’s a look at the probable players on Buffalo’s injury list.

OUT
QB EJ Manuel – knee

PROBABLE
RB C.J. Spiller – ankle
DT Kyle Williams – illness/achilles
CB Ron Brooks – foot
WR Stevie Johnson – low back
LB Manny Lawson – hamstring
DE Mario Williams – hip
QB Thad Lewis – foot

The most encouraging of the probable players are Brooks and Spiller. Brooks hasn’t played since Week 1, but has a chance to be at least active for Sunday’s game. Spiller has been listed as questionable the last two games, but this week is probable, a sign that his ankle injury is improving despite playing on it each week.

That’s consistent with what Spiller told us on Wednesday this week.

“I think it’ll be something that’ll be healed up before the bye week,” said Spiller. “I don’t think it’s going to be something that’s going to linger into November. It’s getting better and better each week and as long as it continues to do that I’ll be fine. There are a couple of more hurdles that I have to get over, but I can definitely see the finish line of me getting back to 100 percent quickly.”

Mario limited with hip ailment

Posted by Chris Brown on October 16, 2013 – 6:10 pm

Bills DE Mario Williams stepped out of practice early with what is listed as a hip injury, so he was limited on Wednesday. Head coach Doug Marrone insists his top pass rusher will be ready come Sunday.

“Mario Williams is fine,” said Marrone. “We limited him a little bit (Wednesday).”

Here’s Buffalo’s full injury report for Wednesday.

Player Pos Injury Participation   Wednesday
EJ Manuel QB Knee DNP
CJ Spiller RB Ankle DNP
Jonathan Meeks S Ankle DNP

C.J. does walk thru, Goodwin too

Posted by Chris Brown on October 1, 2013 – 9:04 am

Monday’s practice for the Bills was just an evening walk through, and C.J. Spiller (ankle) participated as did Marquise Goodwin.

Goodwin has been out since Week 1 with a broken hand. The past two weeks he’s been working on the side at practice and running routes. He just hasn’t been catching any passes. We’ll see if he takes that next step in practice Tuesday.

Fred Jackson (knee) also participated. Here’s the full practice report. This practice report is based on what the level of participation would be for each of these players were they to have a regular Wednesday practice this week.

Did not practice
CB Stephon Gilmore – wrist
CB Ron Brooks – foot
RB C.J. Spiller – ankle

Limited in practice
WR Marquise Goodwin – hand
K Dustin Hopkins – groin
CB Leodis McKelvin – hamstring
S Aaron Williams – low back
RB Fred Jackson – knee
WR Stevie Johnson – hamstring
OL Kraig Urbik – knee
S Jairus Byrd – foot

Leodis questionable, Stevie, C.J. probable

Posted by Chris Brown on September 27, 2013 – 12:37 pm

The Bills injury list is long, but it sounds like most of Buffalo’s nicked up players will be available on Sunday.

The only major question mark is Leodis McKelvin, and a decision on him won’t be made until late Sunday morning according to head coach Doug Marrone.

“He looked good out there today, but again we’re just practicing. That’ll be a game time decision. We’ll bring him in early and work him out,” said Marrone.

Three starters on both offense and defense are probably after sustaining injuries in last Sunday’s game.

OUT
CB Ron Brooks – foot
CB Stephon Gilmore – wrist
K Dustin Hopkins – groin
WR Marquise Goodwin – hand

QUESTIONABLE
S Jairus Byrd – foot
CB Leodis McKelvin – hamstring

PROBABLE
DL Marcell Dareus – ankle
DL Mario Williams – ankle

WR Stevie Johnson – hamstring
