In a slight show of gamesmanship, the Buffalo Bills listed all three of their most severely injured players as questionable on Friday ahead of the weekend’s showdown with the Tennessee Titans. Micah Hyde, Rafael Bush, and Charles Clay all technically have a chance to play on Sunday.
To be realistic, though, it wouldn’t be a shock to see both Hyde and Bush out of the picture this weekend. Following his original injury diagnosis, Hyde (groin) was labelled “week-to-week” by head coach Sean McDermott, and he didn’t practice at all this week. Bush (shoulder) also failed to practice from Wednesday through Friday, and though he’d be needed with Hyde out, his availability may stretch out one more week.
Charles Clay (ankle) followed a similar trajectory to last week, just with a different injury. After missing practice on Thursday, he was a full participant on Friday, and it wouldn’t be surprising to see him on the field against the Titans.
Shaq Lawson and Marcus Murphy were both listed sans injury designation this week, which means if either one is held out of the game on Sunday, it wouldn’t be due to health.
The Titans will be without starting safety Kenny Vaccaro or linebacker Wesley Woodyard, but most of their roster is fully intact.
