Corey Graham concussion: Bills safety practices on Wednesday

New, comments

Corey Graham remains in the NFL's concussion protocol, but his return to the practice field on Wednesday brings some optimism to his potential Week 2 availability against the Patriots.

Just as he was two days ago, Buffalo Bills safety Corey Graham remains in the NFL's concussion protocol. There have, however, been positive developments in his race to be healthy enough to play in Week 2 against the New England Patriotshe practiced on Wednesday (albeit on a limited basis), and he told reporters that he has made it through "most" of the league protocol governing his return to the field.

All of that is to say: Graham's status for Sunday against Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski remains up in the air, but there are more reasons for optimism today than there were on Monday. If Graham cannot play, Bacarri Rambo will once again replace him in the starting lineup, as he did in last weekend's win over Indianapolis.

Three more Bills players are listed on the early Week 2 injury report: wide receiver Marquise Goodwin (ribs) and linebacker Tony Steward (knee), who both missed Week 1 due to injury and appear on track to do so again; and wide receiver Percy Harvin (hip), one of the stars of the win over Indianapolis that probably will end up taking many a rest day during the practice week this season, given the nature of his injury.
