Speaking with WGR 550 on Tuesday afternoon, Buffalo Bills head coach Rex Ryan provided a few injury updates following his team's loss to the New England Patriots on Monday Night Football.
The news was good for quarterback Tyrod Taylor and safety Bacarri Rambo, iffy for defensive lineman Mario Williams, and not so great for right guard John Miller and special teams stalwart Marcus Easley. This was Ryan's full quote on the injury front, as relayed on Schopp and the Bulldog.
"John Miller, I think, Miller’s definitely going to be out. He’s got a high ankle. It’s probably safe to say that Easley, with his concussion, it being a short week, I’m pretty sure that he won’t be available. But I think with Rambo, with some of the other guys, they should be able to play. Mario Williams, I think it’s too early to tell on him, so I’m not real sure about Mario. And then Tyrod, I expect him to play."
Taylor's injury was the biggest concern coming out of the Patriots game, as he was in clear, obvious discomfort on the Bills' final two drives in that contest, but the injury sounds like it's going to be minor enough that he won't miss Sunday's ultra-important game against the Kansas City Chiefs. Now the attention will turn to Williams, who has missed huge chunks of the last two games, and who the Bills could really use in top form as they make their playoff push.
