As the Buffalo Bills continued practicing ahead of their matchup with the Green Bay Packers, the tight end position took a turn for the worse on Thursday. Starting tight end Charles Clay, who was a limited participant on Wednesday with shoulder and hip injuries, didn’t practice. In addition, Jason Croom (who scored a touchdown last week against the Vikings), appeared on the injury report as limited with a knee injury.
If Croom and Clay don’t improve before the weekend, then Khari Lee and Logan Thomas would be the main men in their place. Where Croom and Clay are more versatile pieces who can play inline or out wide, Lee is primarily a blocker and Thomas primarily a receiver, so this would take away some diversity from Buffalo’s offense.
On the other hand, the rest of Buffalo’s injury news was positive. Micah Hyde, who had been limited on Wednesday, was a full participant Thursday. Phillip Gaines was a full participant for the second day in a row, and will be able to play Sunday. Shaq Lawson, Trent Murphy, Marcus Murphy, and LeSean McCoy all practiced in a limited fashion for the second day in a row, which is a positive sign for each.
