The Buffalo Bills are relatively healthy leading up to their game against the Washington Football Team, but cornerback depth could potentially be an issue on Sunday. In the team’s final injury report of the week, both Levi Wallace and Dane Jackson were listed as questionable with knee injuries.
In this case, both players did manage to practice fully on Friday. That’s a positive sign that they’ll be available on Sunday. However, it does spotlight the lack of depth at the position. With Tre’Davious White and Taron Johnson already on the field, the only other cornerback on the roster is Siran Neal. Neal, by the way, did not practice on Friday for personal reasons. That said, the Bills do have three corners on the practice squad if they need to make one active: Cam Lewis, Rachad Wildgoose, and Olijah Griffin.
It’s good news for everyone else on the list. Star Lotulelei’s groin injury (which he apparently suffered during warmups against the Miami Dolphins, but still played through) wasn’t an impediment on Friday. Gabriel Davis (ankle) was also able to practice in full. Micah Hyde (neck) was out of the no-contact jersey and a full participant on Friday. And Tremaine Edmunds (heat exhaustion) and Efe Obada (calf) were never in doubt for this week.
Washington had a much shorter injury list this week, with only two names. Running back Antonio Gibson seems full-go for this weekend, but defensive tackle Matt Ioannidis (knee) seemed to have a setback on Friday, and is questionable to play.
