Buffalo Bills injury report; Jordan Poyer, E.J. Gaines still ailing

Many Bills making progress after sitting out recently

The Buffalo Bills had a few key members of their starting secondary out with injuries on Sunday. The next man stepped up and on a short week don’t be surprised if the Bills are without starters again, even if they are making progress.

At Monday’s afternoon press conference, head coach Sean McDermott updated the media on the many injured players on the Bills roster.

Tight end Charles Clay will likely miss another game with a knee injury he suffered three weeks ago. Clay did not practice on Monday, which probably rules him out for Thursday’s contest against the New York Jets.

Along with Clay, cornerback EJ Gaines did not practice Monday with a hamstring injury, which means Shareece Wright is likely to start opposite Tre’Davious White this week.

Safety Jordan Poyer has made some good progress since his knee injury, which he suffered on the last play against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and was a limited participant at practice, making it very possible for him to return Thursday night. If he can’t go, Trae Elston will get the nod again. He had an interception against the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.

Linebacker Ramon Humber is still not practicing so Matt Milano, who tallied a fumble return for a touchdown, will get another start.
