Four Players In Question to Play This Week for the Buffalo Bills
We're four days away from the Buffalo Bills' week 3 game against the Washington Commanders. The Bills will visit Washington for the first time since 2015, back when Kirk Cousins was the quarterback and Jay Gruden was the head coach.
The Bills are 1-1, while the Commanders are also 1-1 in a tough NFC East division.
The Bills are trying to keep pace with the 2-0 Miami Dolphins in the AFC East, as they will play against Miami in Orchard Park next Sunday. Until then, the Bills have to worry about second-year quarterback Sam Howell, young and talented wide receivers, and a tough defense with Washington.
The storyline around the NFL has been injuries. The Bills got through the first game or two unscathed, but this week has been a different story.
Four key players did not practice on Wednesday:
- Micah Hyde
- Leonard Floyd
- Dawson Knox
- Jordan Phillips
The last practice will be a walkthrough on Friday, which is usually the last chance to play on Sunday. Sean McDermott has typically declared players "out" is they were not a participant at practice all week.
Hyde hurt his hamstring towards the end of the win over the Las Vegas Raiders, while it's an ankle sprain for Floyd.
Knox missed practice because of a back injury, which we don't know much about right now.
Phillips' absence was due to an unspecified illness.
If Hyde can't play, that likely means veteran Taylor Rapp will start in his place and Damar Hamlin would be active for the first time this season.
Knox's absence on Sunday would mean rookie Dalton Kincaid would see a bulk of the workload at tight end.
