The Buffalo Bills (4-8) injury report grew on Thursday heading into Sunday’s clash with the New York Jets (3-9) at New Era Field.
Only two Bills completely missed practice on Thursday: TE Jason Croom (groin injury) and CB Taron Johnson (shoulder) both sat out the practice session with their injuries. Johnson’s season is likely over after the promising rookie member of the secondary underwent surgery Wednesday.
In other injury-related news, WR Isaiah McKenzie — who has impressed since Buffalo scooped him up off waivers from the Denver Broncos on Nov. 5 — came up limping in practice Thursday after running a route. His status for Sunday’s game is unknown but he’s dealing with a toe injury and didn’t finish practice.
Backup quarterback Derek Anderson remains limited and is in the concussion protocol. We don’t know if Jonathan Miller was a full participant on Thursday, but he was limited on Wednesday with his oblique injury and did at least that much today.
The Bills and Jets wrap up their season series at 1 p.m. Sunday. Buffalo throttled the Jets 41-10 at MetLife Stadium in Week 10. The Bills are seeking their first season sweep of the Jets since the 2014 and 2015 seasons.
