NFL week 7 Bills vs Patriots injury report: reviewing the latest update from both camps

The Buffalo Bills have kept their injury list to a minimum, with only three confirmed players out. The New England Patriots, who are their fiercest rivals, have suffered greatly from the injury bug this week, with 19 players on the injured list.

The Bills’ ability to keep their roster fit gives them a big advantage in their next game against the Patriots. Will the disparity in injuries have an important impact on determining the game’s outcome? The only way to know is to wait and see.

Bills injury report

According to the updated injury report from Bills head coach Sean McDermott, three players, including defensive tackle Ed Oliver with a toe injury and tight end Quintin Morris with an ankle issue, have been ruled out for Sunday’s game. Running back Damien Harris, who is dealing with a concussion and neck injury, has been placed on injured reserve and is expected to return in Week 11. None of these three players participated in Friday’s practice session, as reported by Audacy.

Cornerback Cam Lewis, dealing with a shoulder issue, practiced with limitations on Thursday, and his return remains in question. Meanwhile, offensive lineman Spencer Brown, who has been nursing a knee injury, quarterback Josh Allen with a shoulder concern, defensive end AJ Epenesa with a quad issue, tight end Dalton Kincaid recovering from a concussion, tight end Dawson Knox dealing with a wrist problem, cornerback Dane Jackson managing a foot ailment, and defensive end Greg Rousseau recovering from a foot injury all participated fully in Thursday’s practice.

Josh Allen, who was limited in the Bills’ Wednesday walk-through, returned as a full participant in Thursday’s practice. Despite concerns from the team’s head coach Sean McDermott regarding Allen’s shoulder injury sustained in Buffalo’s week 6 match, the latest update suggests that he is likely to resume play against the Patriots.

The Patriots listed a total of 19 players in their injury report. Offensive lineman Riley Reiff (Knee), linebacker Josh Uche (Knee/ankle), and defensive lineman Keion White (Concussion) didn’t appear in the practice session and were ruled out from the active squad for Sunday.
