Bills QB Josh Allen (shoulder) did not practice on Wednesday. It was initially reported that he'd be limited. Allen spoke to the media afterward and said he wants to "stay ahead" on the shoulder injury and make sure it doesn't become a long-term problem. "Every day it gets so much better," Allen added. "If I had to practice today, absolutely would have. If the game was today, I'm playing in the game." Allen can stay penciled into Week 9 fantasy lineups for now. We'll see if he practices on Thursday.

Bills QB Josh Allen will be limited in Wednesday's practice, HC Sean McDermott said. Allen is "working through" a shoulder injury he suffered in last Thursday night's game vs. the Bucs, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. Allen will surely play vs. the Bengals on Sunday night, but this shoulder issue is worth keeping a close eye on.

The Bills are acquiring CB Rasul Douglas from the Packers. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Buffalo is sending a third-round pick to Green Bay for Douglas and a fifth-rounder. Expect Douglas to quickly (perhaps immediately) take over the outside spot opposite Christian Benford. That has been Dane Jackson's spot since CB Tre'Davious White went down. According to Pro Football Focus, Jackson sits tied for 56th among all CBs in coverage grade, 100th in passer rating in coverage among 129 CBs who have played at least 100 snaps. Douglas has had trouble sticking, spending time with the Eagles and Panthers before landing with the Packers the past three seasons. He has been a playmaker when on the field, though, including 10 INTs since the start of 2021. Douglas will be intriguing in a Bills offense that has faced the sixth-most pass attempts so far.

Commanders WR Curtis Samuel suffered a toe injury in the second half of Sunday's game vs. the Eagles and did not return. He was questionable heading into this one with a foot injury. It's unclear if the toe issue is related. We'll look for an update on Samuel's status.

Commanders WR Curtis Samuel (foot) is active for today’s game vs. the Eagles. He was reportedly a game-time decision, so it’s safe to assume that he’ll be at less than 100% for this one. It leaves Samuel as a shaky WR4 play.

Commanders WR Curtis Samuel (foot) is a game-time decision for today's tilt with the Eagles, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "There is optimism about his status, but the team wants to see him work out," Rapoport adds. We'll get Washington's inactives around 11:30 am ET. Samuel will obviously carry elevated risk in fantasy lineups if he suits up.

Commanders WR Curtis Samuel (foot) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Eagles. There’s been no indication that he’s in danger of missing this one, but you’ll need to check back around 11:30 am ET on Sunday to make sure Samuel is active.

Commanders WR Curtis Samuel (foot) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. He should be ready for this weekend's game vs. the Eagles, but we'll see how Samuel is listed on the final injury report tomorrow.

Bills TE Dawson Knox will "likely" be placed on IR with his wrist injury that requires surgery, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That'd knock Knox out for the next four games. He's droppable in all redraft fantasy leagues. Dalton Kincaid has a good chance at TE1 production for however long Knox is sidelined.

Commanders WR Curtis Samuel (foot) did not practice on Wednesday. No word yet on whether he's in danger of missing this weekend's game vs. the Eagles. We'll update Samuel's status again tomorrow.

As expected, Bills TE Dawson Knox (wrist) is out for Thursday night's game vs. the Bucs. We still don't have a timetable for his return. Knox's absence should mean a boost in playing time for TE Dalton Kincaid, making the rookie much easier to trust as a TE1.

Bills HC Sean McDermott told reporters Monday that TE Dawson Knox needs wrist surgery. Knox first appeared on the injury report for the issue in Week 6 but has played through it the past two games. McDermott said they don't know yet how long the TE will be out. His absence obviously helps TE Dalton Kincaid's playing time. The rookie drew a season-high 8 targets in Sunday's loss to the Patriots but ran a route on just 63% of Josh Allen dropbacks. We're betting that will increase, which should steady his target counts at least while Knox is out.

Bills RB James Cook received 13 carries for 56 yards in Week 7 vs. the Patriots. He also hauled all 3 targets for 46 yards with a receiving TD as a pass-catcher in Sunday’s loss. Veteran back Latavius Murray produced very little as the sole RB2, posting just 28 total yards on 6 touches. With their Week 8 game vs. the Buccaneers coming on Thursday night, it’ll be interesting to see if Buffalo is inclined to more evenly distribute the workload. Regardless, Cook will be a quality RB2 option for lineups.

Bills QB Josh Allen completed 27 of 41 attempts for 265 yards with 2 TDs and 1 INT in Sunday’s loss vs. the Patriots. He also added 17 rushing yards and a TD on the ground in the contest. From an objective standpoint, Week 7 was a better showing from the Bills offense than their dysfunctional efforts against the Giants last week. Still, their fourth quarter efforts to battle back weren’t enough to secure the victory. At least Allen’s 24.3 fantasy points were useful for managers. The Bills will play next on Thursday night vs. the Buccaneers.

Bills TE Dalton Kincaid (concussion) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report for Sunday’s game vs. the Patriots. The rookie has averaged 4.3 targets, 3.8 catches, and 25 yards in four full games this season.

Bills QB Josh Allen (shoulder) is not listed on the final Week 7 injury report. He put in full practices on Thursday and Friday. It doesn’t look like that shoulder will be a problem vs. the Patriots on Sunday.

The Bills placed RB Damien Harris (neck, concussion) on IR. He'll miss at least the next four games and can be dropped in most fantasy leagues. RB Latavius Murray should get an uptick in work with Harris sidelined. Harris' absence can't hurt RB James Cook's volume either.

Bills RB Damien Harris (neck, concussion) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Patriots. He's averaged 4.4 carries in five healthy games this season. Expect most of that work to go to RB Latavius Murray this weekend, putting him on the RB3 radar.

Bills QB Josh Allen (shoulder) was upgraded to full participation in Thursday's practice. It's confirmation that he'll be out there for this weekend's game vs. the Patriots. And it doesn't look like the shoulder will be an issue.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport says Bills QB Josh Allen (shoulder) "should be fine" for Sunday's game vs. the Patriots. That's been the general sentiment over the past couple of days. Allen was officially limited in practice on Wednesday. We'll see what he does on Thursday and Friday, but he can stay penciled into Week 7 fantasy lineups for now.
