Like most teams in the NFL, the Buffalo Bills are dealing with their fair share of injuries after two weeks of preseason action.
Several high-profile veterans, notably Pro Bowl running back LeSean McCoy (sore groin) and defensive tackle Kyle Williams (knee injury) sat out Monday’s practice session. McCoy’s injury shouldn’t sideline him for too long, while Williams is week-to-week with his ailment.
After getting the good news that quarterback AJ McCarron didn’t break his collarbone in the 19-17 win over the Cleveland Browns Friday night, head coach Sean McDermott provided a brief update on his injured quarterback, who was in the running to win the starting QB job before suffering the injury.
“Nothing really new, but we’re still working through some things here. He will not practice [Monday], so no real change as far as that’s concerned,” McDermott said.
When asked if he had any sense of a rough timetable for McCarron’s return, McDermott added: “Not at this point, we really don’t. We’re just taking it one day at a time. I’m passing along information to you as I get it from our medical staff.”
Veteran defensive end Trent Murphy, who has been dealing with a groin injury, was fully dressed for practice but spent his time working with the Bills’ training staff.
Wide receiver Brandon Reilly, who is dealing with an injury to his ribs, was seen sporting the red non-contact jersey during Monday’s session, but was also observed taking part in individual wide receiver drills.
Meanwhile, safety Kelcie McCray missed practice with an unknown injury.
The Bills hit the field again today at One Bills Drive.
