Jerry Hughes, Dawson Knox pop up on Buffalo Bills injury report

A couple injuries in practice to two key starters.

The Buffalo Bills, to be honest, have had some of the best injury luck of any team playing in the NFL in 2019. Ten weeks into the season, the team was practicing with a clean injury sheet (and only a handful of players on Injured Reserve). The disparity is best revealed by Miami Herald columnist Armando Salguero, displaying the Wednesday injury report for the upcoming game:

While Wednesday had a clean sheet, Thursday did see a couple of noteworthy changes. First, rookie tight end Dawson Knox did not practice with knee soreness. Sean McDermott told reporters that the decision was precautionary, and not a long-term issue, but it does bare watching leading into the weekend. Knox is the team’s third-leading receiver this year, behind John Brown and Cole Beasley.

Defensive end Jerry Hughes was listed as a limited participant with a groin injury. The severity is not yet known, but facing an elusive passer in Ryan Fitzpatrick next week, the Bills could really use Hughes to help close down escape routes. If Hughes needs to rest, Shaq Lawson would step up in his absence.
