Karlos Williams injures shoulder

Sunday, November 29, 2015, 8:58pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

Buffalo Bills running back Karlos Williams left in the first half of Sunday's 30-22 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs and did not return.

Williams injured his shoulder on a 2-yard run in the first quarter and immediately departed for the locker room. He had two carries for 5 yards before leaving the game.

Fantasy Impact:

LeSean McCoy's primary backup this season, Williams was averaging 5.8 yards per carry entering Sunday's game. He scored a touchdown in each of his first six career games. Dan Herron is next up on the depth chart.

Report: Danny Amendola to miss Week 12

Saturday, November 28, 2015, 12:31pm

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Another week, another key offensive weapon is out for the Patriots.

Tom Curran of CSN New England, confirming a report from Steve Burton of WBZ, says that receiver Danny Amendola won’t play on Sunday night in Denver.

If, as expected, Amendola doesn’t travel to Colorado, the Patriots will be (or at least should be) issuing an updated injury report downgrading Amendola from questionable to out.

Amendola injured his knee on Monday night against the Bills. He had become the primary replacement for Julian Edelman, who had broken a bone in his foot the prior Sunday against the Giants. A week before that, the Patriots lost running back Dion Lewis for the year with a torn ACL.

Fantasy Impact:

The Patriots also recently put receiver Aaron Dobson on injured reserve, leaving them very thin at the position. Brandon LaFell looks to be Tom Brady's top targets in Week 12, and it could also mean we see more Keshawn Martin, but Martin has been inactive in recent weeks. Chris Harper and Matt Slater are next up on the depth chart.

Friday, November 27, 2015, 6:20pm

Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (right shoulder, probable) took limited practice reps all week and is probable for Week 12. Taylor will play but he's not a great option in a bad matchup with a surging Chiefs defense.

Friday, November 27, 2015, 6:20pm

Bills WR Marcus Easley (concussion, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 12.

Wednesday, November 25, 2015, 6:15pm

Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (right shoulder) took limited practice reps Wednesday. Rex Ryan expects that Taylor will play through the shoulder injury, though he’s not a good option this week given the injury and a tough matchup with a hot Kansas City defense.

Bills WR Marcus Easley (concussion) did not practice Wednesday.

Tyrod Taylor (shoulder) expected to play Week 12

Tuesday, November 24, 2015, 5:12pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan expects quarterback Tyrod Taylor to be able to play Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs despite a right shoulder injury that Taylor suffered late in Monday night's loss to the New England Patriots.

"We all know it’s a right shoulder thing," Ryan told WGR 550 in Buffalo on Tuesday afternoon. "I don’t know the particulars of what they call things or whatever. If we had the technical terms on it, you guys wouldn’t know it either. We’ll see how the week progresses how everything goes, but I think he’ll be ready to roll."

Fantasy Impact:

Ryan was ready to replace Taylor with backup E.J. Manuel on Monday, but Taylor told the Bills' coach that he was healthy enough to remain in the game.

Week 11 MNF Injury Report: Keshawn Martin QUESTIONABLE

Saturday, November 21, 2015, 5:18pm

Bills vs. Patriots

DT Kyle Williams (knee)

G Richie Incognito (shoulder)

T Cyrus Kouandjio (knee)

CB Justin Coleman (hand), LB Jamie Collins (illness), WR Julian Edelman (foot)

T Marcus Cannon (toe), G Tre' Jackson (knee), WR Keshawn Martin (hamstring), T Sebastian Vollmer (concussion)

DT Alan Branch (elbow), DE Chandler Jones (abdomen), G Shaquille Mason (knee), DE Jabaal Sheard (ankle)

Fantasy Impact:

Keshawn Martin popped up on the fantasy radar this week as a possible replacement for Julian Edelman. But Martin is dealing with a hamstring issue and that makes him even more risky for lineups this week. Best to take a wait-and-see approach with Martin. Danny Amendola looks like a safer play right now until we see how this unfolds. As for the Bills, in terms of fantasy offensive players, they enter this contest healthy.

Friday, November 20, 2015, 6:29pm

Bills RB Karlos Williams (illness) took limited practice reps Friday. Williams should be fine to play by Monday.

Bills RB LeSean McCoy, WR Sammy Watkins ACTIVE, as expected

Bills Inactives

QB EJ Manuel
LB Randell Johnson
OL Gabe Ikard
DT Kyle Williams
CB Mario Butler
OT Cyrus Kouandjio
DT Stefan Charles

Fantasy Impact:

The probable tags indicate that McCoy and Watkins will play their usual role, health permitting. Watkins will have to deal with Darrelle Revis, while McCoy and Karlos Williams will form a 1-2 punch against a Jets defense that has yielded a combined 5.20 YPC to T.J. Yeldon and Latavius Murray in the last two weeks.

Buffalo Bills

DT Kyle Williams (knee)

T Seantrel Henderson (illness), T Cyrus Kouandjio (knee)

RB LeSean McCoy (shoulder), WR Sammy Watkins (ankle), DE Mario Williams (calf)

New York Jets

S Dion Bailey (ankle), S Calvin Pryor (ankle)

Fantasy Impact:

McCoy and Watkins are probable for the Bills, so they're in. For the Jets, Ivory, Marshall, Decker and Fitzpatrick are all probable, so they're all but certain to play as well.

Jets sign Randy Bullock; Nick Folk to IR

Tuesday, November 10, 2015, 2:02pm - [Full Article]

The frisky New York Jets don't plan to battle Rex Ryan's Buffalo Bills without a kicker on Thursday night.

Gang Green signed former Texans leg Randy Bullock to replace Nick Folk, who bowed out of Sunday's win over the Jaguars with a right quadriceps strain. The Jets placed Folk in injured reserve in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Impact:

Bullock has been shaky in his career, including early this year with the Texans, although there's some fantasy potential as the Jets offense can move the ball.

LeSean McCoy (shoulder) 'sore'

Monday, November 9, 2015, 8:53pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

Star running back LeSean McCoy was on the field for the Buffalo Bills' walk-through Monday but would not have participated in a full practice because of a shoulder injury, the team said on its injury report.

A source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter on Sunday evening that McCoy would “probably” need an MRI on his shoulder before knowing if he could play Thursday night against the New York Jets.

Fantasy Impact:

Head coach Rex Ryan said McCoy was sore, and with a short week his status is up in the air for Thursday's game with the Jets at least right now. Karlos Williams would get a bulk of the work if McCoy can't go.

Bills Beat: Sammy Watkins has 'noticeable limp' Monday

Monday, November 9, 2015, 4:32pm

Fox Sports - [Full Article]

Sammy Watkins exploded for a career day against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday after missing three of the previous four games. Watkins caught eight passes for 168 yards and a touchdown and gave the Bills offense a much-needed boost.

Following the performance, though, there were questions about how Watkins' previously-injured ankle would respond. On Monday, the team got an idea of just how healthy he is.

According to Mike Rodak of ESPN, Watkins was walking with a "noticeable limp" in the team's walkthrough. It's not a good sign obviously, but there's little doubt that he'll be able to play against the Jets on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact:

It's a short turnaround as the Bills and Jets play Thursday night. We had a story earlier that Watkins said he was going to play but we can't always trust players so this is something for owners to keep an eye on.
