Bills QB Josh Allen appeared to injure his right (throwing) elbow near the end of Sunday's loss to the Jets. “There was some slight pain, but I’ll get through it," Allen said afterward. We'll obviously keep a close eye on the situation this coming week. The Bills host the Vikings next Sunday.

Patriots RB Damien Harris (illness) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Colts. RB Kevin Harris is a healthy scratch, leaving RBs Pierre Strong and J.J. Taylor behind workhorse Rhamondre Stevenson.

As expected, Bills LB Matt Milano (oblique) is inactive for today's game against the Jets. Rookie Terrel Bernard is expected to start in his place.

Bills LB Matt Milano (oblique) is not expected to play today against the Jets, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That would leave rookie Terrel Bernard starting in his place. Milano's absence is good news for Jets RB Michael Carter and TE Tyler Conklin. He is Buffalo's best LB, especially in coverage. We have removed Milano from our Week 9 IDP rankings.

ESPN's Adam Schefter calls Patriots RB Damien Harris "unlikely" to play vs. the Colts today due to his illness. It's a bit of a surprise after Harris was able to return to a limited practice on Friday -- but Schefter almost never misses on these early-Sunday reports. Harris' absence would put RB Rhamondre Stevenson back in a workhorse role. He racked up 19 carries and 5 targets when Harris missed Week 6.

Patriots RB Damien Harris (illness) is questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Colts after getting in just a limited practice on Friday. We’re expecting him to play on Sunday, but it’s certainly possible that his volume and/or effectiveness is impacted. Harris is a TD-dependent fantasy play. Rhamondre Stevenson should lead the backfield in touches again.

The Bills have ruled S Jordan Poyer (elbow) out for Sunday’s game against the Jets. LB Matt Milano (oblique) is questionable. He put in a limited practice Friday after missing the first 2. We’ll check his status Sunday mornin

Patriots RB Damien Harris (illness) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. Players almost always play through illnesses -- but we just saw Raiders WR Davante Adams struggle playing through the flu last week. We'll get another update on Harris tomorrow.

Bills S Jordan Poyer (elbow) and LB Matt Milano (oblique) missed Wednesday's practice. According to The Buffalo News, HC Sean McDermott said afterward that each player is "day to day." That indicates each has a chance to play this week, so we'll track their practice participation. NFL Network had reported "week to week" for Poyer, who is probably at greater risk than Milano of missing Sunday's game against the Jets.

The Bills are acquiring RB Nyheim Hines from the Colts, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The move continues Buffalo's pursuit of an upgrade at receiving back. The timing -- after a solid game from James Cook -- points to the Bills not believing the rookie is ready for a bigger role. Hines brings more proven NFL ability as a runner. He figures to challenge the playing time of RB Devin Singletary as well. It should be an upgrade in opportunity for Hines, who sits just 68th among RBs in opportunity share for his 2022 games with Indy. He garnered a stronger 11.8% target share in his 5 healthy games. Buffalo ranks 5th in the league in pass attempts but just 16th in RB receptions. We'll see whether that shifts at all with Hines around. Hines is signed through 2024 but has 2 cuttable years beyond this one. His arrival hurts the short-term outlook for Cook, though there's a chance Buffalo moves on from Hines after this year. The Bills are sending RB Zack Moss and a conditional 6th-round pick in the 2023 NFL Draft to the Colts. Moss has a chance to push past Deon Jackson on the Indy depth chart, but that's far from a sure thing.

Bills HC Sean McDermott said Monday that the team plans to activate CB Tre'Davious White from the PUP list ahead of Wednesday's deadline. "He'll remain day-to-day, and not really going to get into speculating on whether he's going to play this week or not," McDermott said, per ESPN's Alaina Getzenberg. "We're just going to continue to take it day by day like we've done to this point." White has been getting some work in with the team since Week 6. We'll see this week how close he is to game action.

Bills S Jordan Poyer left in the 4th quarter of Sunday night's win over the Packers after hurting his left elbow. He said afterward that it "felt like a pop," according to the Buffalo News. Poyer also said he'll have an MRI today. We'll see about the severity. It's the same elbow Poyer hurt in training camp, costing him the entire preseason. He said this injury feels different. Jaquan Johnson stepped in after Poyer left.

Bills rookie RB James Cook played his 2nd most snaps of the season and garnered his 2nd largest touch count in Sunday night's win over the Packers. he ran for 35 yards on 5 carries and caught a 41-yard pass while playing 25% of Buffalo's offensive snaps. The only game that has seen more snaps or touches for Cook was the 41-7 Week 2 win over Tennessee that allowed him to clean up in garbage time. RB Devin Singletary operated as the clear backfield leader, posting a 14-67 rushing line and adding a 16-yard catch while playing nearly 3 times as many snaps as Cook. RB Zack Moss was active but did not see the field. There's room for Cook to pick up some touches over the 2nd half of the season, especially in games that find the Bills jumping to large leads. He also looks like the clear #2 now, should anything happen to Singletary. Cook should be rostered in most fantasy football leagues of 12+ teams. He's available in 74% of ESPN leagues as of this writing.

Bills WR Stefon Diggs posted numbers Sunday night that belied his team's overall passing struggles in the win over Green Bay. He led Buffalo in targets (8), receptions (6) and yards (108), accounting for 46.2% of QB Josh Allen's completions and 49.5% of his yardage. Diggs also snagged 1 of Allen's 2 TD tosses. TE Dawson Knox grabbed the other, for 1 yard out, among 2 catches for 10 yards on 3 targets. WR Gabriel Davis managed only 2 receptions for 35 yards among 7 targets. No other Bill drew more than 2 looks.

Bills QB Josh Allen had an uncharacteristically mediocre passing night in Sunday's win over the Packers. He completed just 13 of 25 passes (52%) for 218 yards, throwing 2 TD and 2 INTs. The 2nd was particularly bad. Allen was clearly trying to throw the ball away into the ground but put it at the feet of Green Bay's top corner, Jaire Alexander, allowing him to make a diving INT near the Packers goal line. Allen nearly made up for it on the ground, with 49 yards on 6 attempts but came up short of the end zone on a 1st-quarter run that preceded TE Dawson Knox's TD catch. Buffalo gets the Jets, Vikings, Browns and Lions ahead of a Week 13 visit to New England.

Patriots RB Damien Harris (hamstring) is off the final injury report for Monday night's game against the Bears. That should mean he's ready to split the carries with Rhamondre Stevenson once again. New England heads into the game as an 8-point favorite, so there should be plenty of rushing work to support both backs in fantasy football lineups. We'll see if the split gets back to what it was before Harris' injury.

Patriots RB Damien Harris (hamstring) put in another full practice on Friday. He remains on track to return for Monday night's game vs. the Bears.

Patriots RB Damien Harris (hamstring) was a full participant in Thursday's practice. That puts him on track to return for Monday night's game vs. the Bears. Expect New England to revert back to a rotation with Harris and RB Rhamondre Stevenson. In their last 3 healthy games together, Harris out-carried Stevenson 44 to 35, with Stevenson holding a 12 to 6 edge in targets.

Bills WR Stefon Diggs racked up a 10-148-1 receiving line on 13 targets in Sunday's win over the Chiefs. He garnered 32.5% of Josh Allen's pass attempts and accounted for 45% of Buffalo's passing yardage for the game. WR Gabriel Davis finished 2nd on the team with 6 targets, catching 3 balls for 74 yards and a TD (from 34 yards out). TE Dawson Knox snagged the other TD passes, 1 of his 3 catches for 37 yards on 3 targets. WR Isaiah McKenzie and RB Devin Singletary tied for 3rd on the team with 5 targets.

Bills QB Josh Allen wound up with 329 yards and 3 TDs passing in Sunday's victory at Kansas City. He completed 27 of 40 throws (67.5%), finding WR Stefon Diggs, WR Gabriel Davis and TE Dawson Knox for TDs. Allen added 32 rushing yards on 12 attempts. He sits 3rd among fantasy QBs for the week, with the Monday night game yet to go.
