Bills injury updates

That’s right, more than 28% of Buffalo’s active 53-man roster (15 players!) had some sort of injury designation in Thursday’s injury report, led by wide receiver Gabe Davis (ankle), cornerback Christian Benford (hand), defensive tackle Jordan Phillips (hamstring), and wideout Jake Kumerow (ankle), who all sat out Thursday’s practice session. On the good news front, just nine days after he was hospitalized with a scary neck injury, cornerback Dane Jackson was back on the practice field.
