Bills vs. Dolphins Injury Report: Eric Wood Likely To Play

It's looking like center Eric Wood will suit up for the Buffalo Bills this Sunday in Miami.

Timothy T. Ludwig-US PRESSWIRE

The Buffalo Bills will likely have center Eric Wood back for Sunday's road game against the Miami Dolphins.

Wood, who was injured in a home loss to St. Louis on December 9, was diagnosed with a partially torn MCL, and there were initial fears that the fourth-year veteran may miss the final four games of the season. Instead, it's looking like he'll suit up two weeks after the injury, relegating rookie David Snow back to his reserve role.

Already ruled out for the Bills: wide receiver Marcus Easley, defensive end Mark Anderson and linebacker Chris White. Easley has a hamstring issue, while White - the team's most-used special teams player - has hand and hamstring ailments that will prevent him from playing. Anderson, who hasn't played since Week 5 with a knee issue that required two surgeries (he was active for last week's loss to Seattle, but did not play a snap), is also back on the inactive list.

Chris Hogan and Kirk Morrison will almost certainly suit up on Sunday in place of Easley and White. Anderson's absence could pave the way for Jay Ross to suit up as an eighth defensive lineman; more likely, it will open the door for sixth corner T.J. Heath to play special teams.

10 more players are listed as probable, but they'll all play, so it's barely worth mentioning.
