Injury report: Buffalo Bills healthier than Kansas City Chiefs heading into AFC Championship

Matt Warren is Associate Director of NFL coverage for SB Nation and previously covered the Bills for Buffalo Rumblings for more than a decade.

While Patrick Mahomes was cleared from the concussion protocol, the Buffalo Bills are still healthier than the Kansas City Chiefs heading into the AFC Championship Game. The final injury report was released on Friday afternoon.

For the Bills, only DT Vernon Butler and WR Gabriel Davis are questionable after practicing Friday. They had been absent from practice all week with quad and ankle injuries, respectively.

WR Cole Beasley (knee) popped back onto the injury report Thursday but was a full participant Friday. Likewise, Stefon Diggs was limited on Wednesday and Thursday but practiced in full on Friday and will be full-go on game day with his quad injury.

For the Chiefs, Mahomes is dealing with turf toe, but said he was fine after clearing concussion protocol. He’s going to play but it remains to be seen how mobile he will be. Linebacker Willie Gay has been declared out with a high ankle sprain.

The Chiefs had a long list of questionable players on their final report; CB Bashaud Breeland (concussion), RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle/hip), CB Rashad Fenton (foot), and WR Sammy Watkins (calf) were all limited each day this week. Running back Le’Veon Bell was a full participant Wednesday but didn’t practice Thursday or Friday and is also questionable with a knee injury.

Injuries are likely to be a big storyline from the game, as they were in Week 6 when Buffalo was without Jon Feliciano and Matt Milano—and Tre’Davious White, Tremaine Edmunds, and Josh Allen were all banged up but played.
