As the Buffalo Bills prepare to travel to Foxboro, MA to take on the New England Patriots on Thursday Night Football, the team received both good and bad news on Sunday.

Today’s edition of Buffalo Rumblinks breaks down the good—center Mitch Morse, middle linebacker Tremaine Edmunds, and defensive end Greg Rousseau each returned to the practice field on Sunday—and the bad, with eight players sitting out the team’s workout with an illness.

Illness forces eight Bills to miss Sunday’s workout

The Bills are dealing with an illness running through their locker room that forced eight players—safeties Jordan Poyer and Jaquan Johnson, cornerbacks Dane Jackson and Siran Neal, linebacker Tyler Matakevich, running back Nyheim Hines, wide receiver Khalil Shakir, and tight end Quintin Morris—to sit out Sunday’s workout.

On the positive side, three key starters—center Mitch Morse, middle linebacker Tremaine Edmunds, and defensive end Greg Rousseau—were back on the field on Sunday.
