Less than three weeks after sustaining a nasty ankle injury in the Buffalo Bills’ win over the Miami Dolphins, starting right tackle Ty Nsekhe “is making progress” in his efforts to rejoin his teammates on the field, according to Buffalo head coach Sean McDermott.
McDermott added that he expected to see Nsekhe back on the practice field “in some role” on Wednesday as Buffalo (9-3) prepares to face Lamar Jackson and the red-hot Baltimore Ravens (10-2) at 1 p.m. Sunday at New Era Field.
When the team released its official injury report, Nsekhe had a “did not practice” designation—the only Bill listed on the injury report.
Nsekhe collapsed to the field in pain after Dolphins defensive end Avery Moss landed with his full body weight onto Nsekhe’s ankle midway through the third quarter of Buffalo’s 37-20 win on Nov. 17.
With Nsekhe sidelined, rookie Cody Ford had taken over at right tackle, holding up admirably against the Denver Broncos’ Von Miller and Dallas Cowboys’ DeMarcus Lawrence, two of the league’s premier pass rushers.
