The Buffalo Bills appear to be getting healthier heading into Sunday’s game against the New England Patriots. E.J. Gaines, Lorenzo Alexander, and Nick O’Leary are all practicing today for the Bills. All four missed practice on Wednesday, and will be valuable pieces should Buffalo pull off the upset in New England. Kelvin Benjamin was participating in positional drills, a sign of improvement for the Buffalo wide receiver.

Not on the practice field was Kyle Williams, who is continuing to deal with a groin injury. He was able to gut it out last week and while the Bills remain in the playoff race, it’s hard to imagine him going to injured reserve. Also out was receiver Andre Holmes, missing his second practice in a row with a neck injury. Buffalo added Brandon Reilly to the active roster two weeks ago and coukd dress for the first time in his young career if Holmes can't go.

The Bills are currently a 12-point underdog on Sunday, so any positive news on the injury front is welcomed. Check back with Buffalo Rumblings throughout the week for the latest injury updates leading into Sunday’s game against the New England Patriots.
