Bills Links, 10/10: This is the perfect time for Buffalo’s bye week

New, comments

With the large number of players recovering from injuries, the bye week is welcome for the Bills.

NFL: Buffalo Bills at Cincinnati Bengals Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

With the number of injuries suffered by the Buffalo Bills in recent weeks, the bye week has come at the perfect time. Charles Clay could be out for a month following Sunday’s injury, and more specific details on his timetable for return should become available in the next few days. The bye will also give players like E.J. Gaines, Cordy Glenn, and Shareece Wright extra time to get fully healthy before the Bills face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on October 22.

Much of the focus on Monday was around the disappointing performance by the Bills offense, and what the coaching staff could do over these next two weeks to get the run game back to form. The latest Locked On Bills podcast is also worth a listen, as Erik Turner and Nate Geary take a closer look at the loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, while giving plenty of reasons for Bills fans to stop overreacting.
