With only three games left on the regular season schedule and their AFC playoff hopes all but completely dashed, the Buffalo Bills and head coach Rex Ryan are not ruling out the possibility that one or more injured players could be sidelined for the rest of the season.
Ryan was asked that very question during a press conference on Monday. While he wouldn't confirm anything, as the team's injuries were still being evaluated, he kept open the possibility that injured players could be lost for the final three games. Starting cornerback Stephon Gilmore, in particular, was brought up.
"I think that is something, with that shoulder as a dislocation, could it be a possibility, I am not ruling it out," Ryan said of his top cornerback.
One injured player that Ryan sounded hopeful to have back this week was linebacker Nigel Bradham, who has missed the last two games with an ankle injury. The team is taking a wait-and-see approach with not only Gilmore and Bradham, but running back Karlos Williams (shoulder), tackle Seantrel Henderson (illness), and tight end Charles Clay (back), as well.
