Both the Buffalo Bills and Oakland Raiders returned to the practice field on Wednesday in preparation for their Week 2 matchup this Sunday at Ralph Wilson Stadium. Fortunately for the Bills, their injury report after the week's first practice is significantly shorter than Oakland's.
The Bills saw two of their injured return to practice in a limited capacity today, with both nose tackle Torell Troup (back) and inside linebacker Arthur Moats (knee) participating, albeit on a limited basis. It's unclear if either will be available this weekend, but it's a step in the right direction. Terrence McGee (hamstring) was the only non-participant for Buffalo.
On Oakland's side, five players did not participate in practice, including three starters - wide receiver Jacoby Ford (hamstring), defensive lineman Richard Seymour (ribs) and safety Michael Huff (groin). A further four were limited in practice, including running back Darren McFadden (shoulder), tight end Kevin Boss (knee) and cornerback Chris Johnson (groin). In all, 11 Raiders players made today's practice report due to injury.
We'll know official injury designations for all of these players on Friday.
