Bills Injury Report: Glenn out, Watkins questionable

New, comments

A few key players are on the injury report this week, including a certain star receiver who will almost certainly miss the team's third game of the season.

The Buffalo Bills will definitely be without Cordy Glenn for the second straight week as they take on the Arizona Cardinals at home this Sunday, and all indications point to Sammy Watkins joining him on the bench, according to the Bills' injury report.

Watkins, who has been dealing with an oft-discussed foot injury since the offseason, had the injury aggravated in a very Bills-like way this week:

Watkins is officially listed as questionable, but Rex Ryan isn't too optimistic about his chances to take the field against Patrick Peterson and the dangerous Cardinals secondary. The Bills head coach confirmed to Chris Brown of the team's website that they'll let Watkins "try it out" on Sunday, and he'll be a game-time decision. Greg Salas, he of the 71-yard touchdown reception last Thursday night, is also on the injury report as questionable, but is almost certain to play. Walt Powell will see his offensive opportunities increase against the Cardinals, although to what degree depends on whether Watkins suits up and how much action he sees.

Glenn has played less than one half of football since signing a five-year contract extension this offseason, missing the entire preseason with an ankle injury that reared its ugly had again in the season opener at Baltimore. Cyrus Kouandjio, who has performed very well in his stead, will be making his second straight start at left tackle.

Ronald Darby, who has been limited in practice all week with a hamstring injury, joins Watkins as questionable for the Cardinals game. Nickell Robey-Coleman, who returned a fumble for a touchdown against the Jets last week, figures to fill in on the outside of Darby can't go, although Ryan might opt to elevate rookie Kevon Seymour to face the 6'2" Michael Floyd and 6'3" Larry Fitzgerald while keeping Robey-Coleman closer to the 5'11" John Brown for most of the game.

Charles Clay missed practice on Wednesday with a knee injury, but returned on a limited basis for the last two sessions and is questionable for Sunday. Jim Dray and Nick O'Leary, who played a combined 14 of 53 offensive snaps against the Jets, should see their workloads increase regardless of Clay's status, but even more so if he can't go.

The remaining names on the injury report have been there all season. Quarterback Cardale Jones is questionable for the third straight game with a shoulder injury that appeared prior to the preseason finale, but likely wouldn't play even at full health. Safety Colt Anderson will miss his third straight game with a foot injury after missing practice on Friday and has yet to be active for a regular season game with the team.
