.@buffalobills Injury Update: CB E.J. Gaines is out for the game with a hamstring injury.— Buffalo Bills PR (@BuffaloBillsPR) October 22, 2017
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.
