The Buffalo Bills (3-0) are preparing to face the New England Patriots (3-0) in a showdown of undefeated teams at 1 p.m. Sunday at New Era Field.
On Wednesday, several members of the Bills were held out of practice, led by rookie running back Devin Singletary (hamstring) and tight end Tyler Kroft (ankle).
Singletary missed last week’s 21-17 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals after pulling up lame with a hamstring injury in the second half of Week 2’s 28-14 win over the New York Giants. Kroft, who Buffalo signed to a three-year contract this offseason, sustained his injury last Thursday, preventing him from making his debut with the Bills against his former team.
Linebacker Corey Thompson (ankle) had surgery on Wednesday, and head coach Sean McDermott envisions Thompson returning at some point this season but he will be out for some time.
In other injury news, starting right guard Jon Feliciano and cornerback Taron Johnson were each limited in practice Wednesday. Feliciano sustained a neck injury in the win over the Bengals, while Johnson is still dealing with a nagging hamstring injury.
Feliciano, wide receiver Zay Jones, and cornerback Tre’Davious White wore the no-contact jerseys during Wednesday’s practice.
Cole Beasley was stung by a bee but soldiered on.
