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.
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.
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.

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.

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.
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."

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.

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.

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.
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.
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.
