News: Rambo (shoulder) was limited at practice Wednesday.
Impact: Rambo injured his shoulder during Monday's loss to the Patriots, but his availability at practice Wednesday has to be viewed as a good sign for IDP owners. We'll check back on his game-time status as the week progresses, but as of now it seems as if the 25-year-old safety could make an appearance in Sunday's game against the Chiefs.
News: Easley (concussion) did not practice Wednesday.
Impact: Easley suffered a concussion during Monday's loss to the Patriots, and it remains to be seen whether the special-teams ace will be able to play this week against the Chiefs. He's made just one catch all season for the Bills, so his absence shouldn't hurt fantasy owners too much, but it's likely his game-time status will be decided closer to the end of the week.
Impact: Williams left Monday's game against the Patriots early due to a foot injury, so it remains to be seen if the former first-round pick will be able to practice at all this week. He's recorded just 14 tackles and three sacks in 10 games this season, so his absence will likely affect the Bills' defensive line depth more than IDP owners.
News: Clay, who left Monday's game against the Patriots for a time with a neck issue, is not listed on the Bills' Week 12 injury report.
Impact: Coming off a one-catch, 14-yard effort on three Week 11 targets, Clay is a speculative play Sunday against the Chiefs, a team that has reeled off four straight wins and held San Diego tight ends Ladarius Green and Antonio Gates to a combined two catches for 15 yards this past weekend.
News: Taylor (right shoulder) was limited at practice Wednesday, ESPN's Mike Rodak reports.
Impact: Per Rodak, Taylor relayed that he rested his shoulder Wednesday, but plans to resume throwing at Thursday's practice. Assuming that occurs without any setbacks, we'd expect the QB to remain on course to be able to play Sunday against the Chiefs.
Impact: With Leodis McKelvin having some issues holding on to the ball as a punt returner of late, and Boom Herron and Denarius Moore having been let go by the team, Thigpen will once again join the Bills' return mix in advance of Sunday's game against the Chiefs.
Impact: With fellow running backs LeSean McCoy and Karlos Williams healthy these days, Herron was deemed expendable by the Bills. He'll now look to catch on with a team in need of some backfield depth at this time.
News: The Buffalo Bills have signed Groy and receiver Marcus Thigpen.
Impact: Groy fills an immediate need after being signed off the Tampa Bay Buccaneers practice squad Wednesday. Starting right guard John Miller is out indefinitely with a high left ankle sprain sustained in a 20-13 loss at New England on Monday. Groy had three starts in four games as a rookie last year in Chicago.
News: Miller suffered a high-ankle sprain during Monday's loss to New England and did not return. Coach Rex Ryan does not expect him back this week for an important game in Kansas City, BuffaloBills.com reports.
Impact: Miller has had ups and downs as a rookie, while long term everyone seems to think he's going to be an excellent NFL guard. Even though he's still prone to mistakes, there's a drop-off from him to veteran Kraig Urbik.
News: Bills head coach Rex Ryan said Tuesday that Taylor (right shoulder/collarbone) should be able to play in Sunday's game against the Chiefs, WGR 550's Mike Schopp reports.
Impact: The Bills apparently got some good news Tuesday morning, as Ryan didn't sound nearly this confident in the immediate aftermath of Monday's game. Taylor repeatedly clutched at his right collarbone late in the contest, but the injury didn't actually appear to impact his accuracy or arm strength. If Taylor is ultimately unable to play, EJ Manuel will likely get the nod.
News: Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan says Taylor should be healthy enough to play against Kansas City on Sunday.
Impact: Taylor's status was a concern. Though he finished Monday's game against New England, he was hampered by an injury to his right shoulder in the final quarter. He went 20 of 36 for 233 yards without a TD or an INT.
