The Buffalo Bills hit the practice field on Wednesday to prepare for their season finale against the New York Jets on Sunday. Three players did not participate in practice, casting doubt onto their availability for Sunday, while five more players participated on a limited basis.
LeSean McCoy was the headline player among those not practicing. He missed last Sunday's win over Dallas with a knee injury, and it's possible that rather than risking further injury to the MCL in a meaningless game, the team will just shut McCoy down. Starting safety Bacarri Rambo (shoulder) and right guard John Miller (ankle) did not practice, either.
Tyrod Taylor was limited with a throwing shoulder problem, but he assured reporters that he'll be playing. Four more defensive starters were also limited - defensive end Mario Williams (hand), defensive tackle Marcell Dareus (neck), linebacker Nigel Bradham (ankle), and cornerback Ronald Darby (groin). Dareus, Bradham, and Darby are both trying to return from being sidelined, and having any of the three, let alone all of them, would be a big help for a defense that is reeling heading into the offseason.
