In their injury report heading into Week 16, the Buffalo Bills (10-4) remain relatively healthy, with only two players appearing on the official injury report.
Starting right tackle Ty Nsekhe (ankle), who has been sidelined since suffering a nasty ankle injury during Buffalo’s 37-20 win over the Miami Dolphins on Nov. 17, was the only player to miss Wednesday’s practice session because of an injury.
Defensive tackle Corey Liuget (knee), who did not see the field during the Bills playoff-clinching 17-10 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 15, was limited during the team’s practice session on Wednesday with his knee injury. He has not suited up since the team’s 24-17 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 14.
A trio of veterans—linebacker Lorenzo Alexander, running back Frank Gore, and defensive end Jerry Hughes—received rest days and were held out of practice Wednesday, the team’s first official practice of the week following Sunday night’s win in Pittsburgh. (They held a walk-through on Tuesday due to the short week.)
The Bills have already secured their second playoff appearance in three years and can finish no worse than fifth in the AFC.
Buffalo travels to Foxborough to face their AFC East rivals—the New England Patriots (11-3)—at 4:30 p.m. Saturday, with a chance at claiming a division title still on the line. If Buffalo wins out and the Patriots lose out (New England plays the Miami Dolphins in Week 17) the Bills would win the AFC East championship.
