Buffalo Bills head coach Rex Ryan spoke with reporters early Monday afternoon to discuss, among other things, the team's injury situation coming out of yesterday's win over Houston, and heading into the final quarter of the season.
We'll start with top cornerback Stephon Gilmore, whose shoulder apparently popped out during a third-quarter tackle yesterday. The Bills are taking the wait-and-see approach with both Gilmore and his backup, Ron Brooks, but Ryan put a stop to the notion that Gilmore's season is in jeopardy. Now we're left to see how much he practices this week.
It also sounds like the Bills are expecting both Karlos Williams and Seantrel Henderson to play this coming in weekend in Philadelphia. The outlook is not as rosy, however, for John Miller and Nigel Bradham.
Ryan thinks Henderson, Karlos Williams will be able to play against Eagles. Bradham seems doubtful, John Miller in same category— Sal Maiorana (@salmaiorana) December 7, 2015
Finally, we have top safety Aaron Williams, who has not played since Week 5 in Tennessee after landing on short-term IR with a neck injury. He was eligible to return to practice last week, but did not; he's actually eligible to play this week, but he won't. He won't practice this week, either, with Ryan telling reporters that while the team is hopeful to have him back sometime this month, it's a 50-50 proposition.
As is typical of their work week, Bills players will have the day off on Tuesday, and will return to the practice field to begin prep for Philly on Wednesday. We should know much more about these injury situations at that juncture.
