ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) Buffalo Bills wide receiver Robert Woods expects to play Sunday against the San Diego Chargers after suffering a right ankle injury earlier in the week.
Woods is listed as probable. He suffered the injury late in practice on Wednesday while making a cut on the field. Woods missed practice Thursday, but returned on a limited basis Friday. After practice Friday, Woods was optimistic about his chances.
”I feel pretty good,” Woods said. ”I had the ankle injury before, this is a slight one and I just want to go out there and play. I feel good and I’m happy it didn’t take long.”
