Buffalo Bills injuries: cornerback E.J. Gaines (hamstring) out for game

Seems like he leaves the game every week.

NFL: Detroit Lions at Buffalo Bills Kevin Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports

The Buffalo Bills have announced that cornerback E.J. Gaines will miss the remainder of the game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with a hamstring injury.

Gaines has missed at least one play in every game this season due to injury, including the entire game against the Cincinnati Bengals with a groin injury. Shareece Wright has filled in for him all year, and will do so again today.

The Buccaneers have been moving the ball well even with Gaines on the field. Wright could be even more of a liability against Jameis Winston, Mike Evans, DeSean Jackson, and the rest of the Buccaneer passing game.

We’ll see if Gaines misses any games due to the injury, but for now we’ll just hope that Wright can hold the fort down and keep Tampa out of the end zone. Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer are also available to help out in pass coverage.
