Buffalo Bills Injury Primer: Week 6

Published

on

The Buffalo Bills are back in Honky Tonk Town for another primetime matchup. Fresh off the second coming of Air Allen, the Bills are currently on top of the NFL world. They are also leading another chart, one that makes my quads clench. The Buffalo Bills are the NFL’s healthiest team right now.

The Tennessee Titans, on the other hand, are not as healthy. CB Kristian Fulton and LB Monty Rice are OUT. Meanwhile, FB Khari Blasingame, RB Jeremy McNichols, WR A.J. Brown, and WR Chester Rogers are QUESTIONABLE.

LB Matt Milano

Milano strained his right ‘hamstring’ in the second quarter of Week 4. He was removed from the game and never returned. Milano has had plenty of soft tissue injuries, especially his hamstring. This is now his fifth documented hamstring injury since the start of his career. Hamstring injuries vary based on grade of strain, but generally, take 2-6 weeks to recover.

Historically, Milano usually only takes two week (one missed game) to return to play. He was able to return to practice right before the Chiefs game, which drew optimism he would be able to play. However, the team stayed conservative and made him inactive. This Monday night, Milano will be 15 days post-injury, which should be sufficient to return from a Grade 1 hamstring strain. Milano may have some limitations in his body armor, but he sure does heal fast. The Italian Stallion will gallop tonight!!

RB Taiwan Jones

Taiwan first appeared on the injury report for his ‘hamstring’ after the Texans game. Not much information is available, but one can assume he injured it during that game. Last week, Taiwan defied all odds and went from double DNPs to gameday active. The same has been done again. Taiwan was DNP for two days, but has returned to fully active and will play tonight.

OL Jon Feliciano

Fresh off a ‘concussion’, Feliciano is now listed with an ‘elbow’ injury. I am speculating he had an insignificant sprain of his elbow, especially since he played 100% of the offensive snaps last week. He was first seen wearing an elbow sleeve on his left arm early in the second quarter. The injury can be seen during his pass set on Josh Allen’s intentional grounding play, which ended the previous series. 

Thigh Doctor on Twitter: “ICYMI Feliciano listed with an ‘elbow’. Appears to sustain an insignificant sprain during pass pro on Allen’s intentional grounding call late in 1st. Played 100% snaps, but returned with an elbow sleeve. Sleeves > elbow brace in terms of good health 👍🏻 pic.twitter.com/bx9U5LfF2v / Twitter”

He has been a full participant all week and did not miss any action in the Chiefs game. This is a non-issue.

OL Ryan Bates 

Listed with an ‘ankle’ on Thursday, it is unsure what happened to Bates. Possibly something occurred in practice, but he returned to full participation the next day. He is good to go.

CB Siran Neal

Siran appeared on the injury report Friday with an ‘illness’. He returned the next day and will play.
