Bills LB Matt Milano finished the week with a full practice Saturday and carries no game status into Monday night against the Titans. That's noteworthy after he missed the Week 5 contest in Kansas City with a hamstring injury. Assuming Milano gets back to full playing time, he carries plenty of upside against a Titans offense that has supplied the 2nd most fantasy points to LBs so far.

Bills LB Matt Milano (hamstring) is inactive for tonight's game against the Chiefs. That should mean starter-level playing time for A.J. Klein.

Bills LB Matt Milano is questionable for Sunday night's game against the Chiefs with a hamstring injury. He missed practice Wednesday and Thursday before returning for limited work Friday. The late kickoff plus a negative scoring matchup for LBs makes Milano a tough guy to wait for in Week 5 IDP lineups. Try to go another route if you can help it. In deep leagues where you plan to wait, teammate A.J. Klein can serve as insurance. He'd likely see full or near-full time work if Milano sits. Consider available Chiefs, Colts and Ravens LBs as options as well. Elsewhere on the defense, S Jordan Poyer and CB Taron Johnson are ready to return after missing last week. DE Gregory Rousseau is also good to go after opening the week missing practice with a toe injury. CB Tre'Davious White was limited in practice every day with a shoulder issue but carries no injury status into the game. So he should be set for normal playing time as well.

Bills LB Matt Milano left Sunday's win over the Texans with a hamstring injury. We'll see how serious the issue is, but it marks the 3rd straight season that Milano has injured a hamstring. If he is set to miss more time, A.J. Klein would likely step into full-time duty with Tremaine Edmunds. Klein had 5 games last year where he played 88+% of the snaps, as Milano dealt with multiple injuries. The veteran delivered good fantasy numbers over that span, including a stretch with 4.5 sacks over 3 weeks.

Bills LB Matt Milano will miss at least the next 5 days as a close contact to the staff member who tested positive for COVID. It’s the same situation affecting WRs Cole Beasley and Gabriel Davis, which means Milano is also unvaccinated. Fellow Bills LB A.J. Klein is out for the same reason. As long as both guys test negative, they’ll be back after the 5 days. We’ll see where the situation goes from here

The Bills have agreed to a 4-year, $44 million extension with LB Matt Milano, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The deal includes $24 million guaranteed. It obviously locks Milano in as a full-timer for at least the next couple of seasons. Milano struggled through hamstring and pectoral injuries last season that limited him to just 3 games of at least 50% playing time. It's particularly telling that Buffalo paid up in spite of that. Milano carries top-20 IDP scoring upside at his position.

The Bills have activated LB Matt Milano from IR (pectoral) and plan to play him against the 49ers tonight. Coaches haven't revealed details on his role, though. HC Sean McDermott pointed out early in the week that A.J. Klein has been the one playing while Milano has missed weeks. That sounds like a coach hesitant to return even a healthy Milano to full playing time. It's also worth noting that MLB Tremaine Edmunds has scored poorest among Bills LBs across the board in Pro Football Focus grading. Klein, meanwhile, holds a higher coverage grade than even Milano right now and rates among the team's best pass-rushers. If you've been planning to use Klein in your Week 13 IDP lineup, we'd stick with him. We'll see about the role tonight for Milano, who also played limited snaps the 2 games before landing on IR while trying to manage the injury.

The Bills have ruled LB Matt Milano out for Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Sal Capaccio of WGR 550 reports. Milano played a limited role each of the past 2 weeks because of a pectoral injury that cost him the previous 2 games. This week's change at least keeps us from having to guess at how to treat Milano in IDP lineups. A.J. Klein has been the 2nd Bills LB in playing time when Milano has missed time (behind MLB Tremaine Edmunds).

Bills S Micah Hyde (concussion) is inactive for today's game against the Patriots. LB Matt Milano (pec) is active but could still see his role limited. DE Jerry Hughes (foot) and DT Quinton Jefferson (knee) are active as well.

Bills S Micah Hyde (concussion), DE Jerry Hughes (foot), LB Matt Milano (pec) and DT Quinton Jefferson (knee) are all questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots. Hyde looks unlikely to play after missing practice all week. Hughes and Jefferson each put in a full practice Friday and looks likely to be available. Milano played through a questionable tag last week and continued to practice on a limited basis this week. He played just a fraction of his normal role in Week 7, though. We have to assume he won't be back to full playing time this week.

Bills LB Matt Milano and CB Tre'Davious White are active for today's game against the Jets. Milano had missed the past 2 games with a pectoral injury but looks good to go for IDP lineups. White's back issue popped up during the week, so we'll see if it affects his playing time today. But White looks ready to go if you were planning to play him in your IDP lineup. The team defense only becomes a stronger fantasy play with 2 key starters in the lineup.

Bills LB Matt Milano (pec) and CB Tre'Davious White (back) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets. White played through a questionable tag last week. But after not showing up on the Wednesday injury report, he was limited Thursday and then sat out Friday. We wouldn't be surprised to see him sit out this game. Milano missed his 2nd straight game last week despite mixing in a full Thursday practice between 2 limited workouts. He spent all 3 days limited this week. We'll update the status for both players Sunday morning. If Milano can't go, A.J. Klein would see full playing time. He played 88% of the snaps against Kansas City, tallying 7 tackles and a forced fumble. White's backup is Siran Neal. Buffalo will also miss CB Josh Norman, who suffered a hamstring injury Thursday. Levi Wallace, the season-opening starter opposite White, is already on short-term IR.

Bills LB Matt Milano (pec) is inactive for the 2nd straight game tonight against the Chiefs. Tyrel Dodson should start in his place. Dodson played 91% of the snaps vs. Tennessee in Week 5, with Milano out. Bills CB Tre'Davious White (back) is active. He finished the week with a pair of full practices and should be good to go for IDP lineups.

Bills LB Matt Milano (pec) is questionable for Monday's game against the Chiefs. He practiced all week, though, sandwiching a full Friday workout between 2 limited practices. We'd bet on him playing. If Milano does sit, A.J. Klein would likely elevate to full playing time.

Bills HC Sean McDermott has called LB Matt Milano (pectoral) and CB Levi Wallace (ankle) "week to week" with injuries they suffered in Sunday's win over the Raiders. That indicates each starter has a decent chance to miss Sunday's game at Tennessee. Make sure you plan for IDP alternatives.
