Colts RB Nyheim Hines (concussion) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. That means he's made progress through the protocol and has a chance to be cleared for Sunday's game vs. the Jaguars. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

Bills WR Isaiah McKenzie has cleared concussion protocol, HC Sean McDermott said Wednesday. So, barring a setback, McKenzie will return for this weekend's showdown vs. the Chiefs. We're projecting him to take back over as Buffalo's primary slot receiver, but WR Khalil Shakir could steal some snaps after a strong showing in McKenzie's place last week.

After dominating backfield time and work the previous 2 games, Bills RB Devin Singletary saw the gap shrink in Sunday's lopsided win over the Steelers. His 30 snaps were just 4 more than the combined total for Zack Moss (16) and James Cook (10). Singletary carried 6 times for 42 yards, compared with 4 carries for Cook and 1 for Moss. He added just 1 catch for 4 yards on 2 targets, running 20 routes vs. 15 combined for Moss and Cook. According to Pro Football Focus, Singletary has played 76.4% of offensive snaps when the Bills are tied for trailing. That has dipped to 51.4% when Buffalo leads. So it appears we should consider Singletary to be at greater risk of losing time when then Bills enter a game as heavy favorites.

With Dawson Knox out, Quintin Morris worked as the starter and clear leader among Bills TEs in Sunday's win over the Steelers. He played 15 more snaps than #2 Tommy Sweeney and ran 17 more routes. Morris also claimed all 4 TE targets in the game. That's not a fantasy-relevant level of inclusion for most formats. We'll see whether Knox is ready to return for Week 6.

Bills WR Gabriel Davis had a big Sunday, thanks to TD catches of 98 and 62 yards in the win over the Steelers. He added 1 other reception, for a total of 171 yards and 2 TDs among 6 targets. That marked a 19.4% share of Josh Allen pass attempts. (QB Case Keenum then entered to close out the game.) Davis trailed only WR Stefon Diggs in that category, and matched Diggs' playing time. This looks like the level of usage we should expect from a healthy Davis. We'll see how the target share holds up once WR Isaiah McKenzie and TE Dawson Knox return from injuries.

Bills QB Josh Allen racked up 424 passing yards and 4 TDs in Sunday's lopsided home win over the Steelers. He hit WR Gabriel Davis for TDs of 98 and 62 yards. Allen also connected with WR Stefon Diggs and rookie WR Khalil Shakir for scores. Diggs drew 35.5% of Allen's pass attempts for the game as the only Bills player to exceed 6 targets. A potential shootout at Kansas City awaits in Week 6, with Buffalo's bye on the other side.

Bills WR Isaiah McKenzie (concussion) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Steelers. That leaves rookie Khalil Shakir as Buffalo’s #3 WR – and a nice cheap flier in DFS lineups.

Bills LB Tremaine Edmunds (hamstring) is inactive for today's games against the Steelers. Tyrel Dodson should be the fill-in. DT Ed Oliver (ankle) is active.

Bills WR Jamison Crowder (ankle) has been placed on IR. He'll likely miss the rest of the season with his broken left ankle and can be dropped from fantasy rosters.

Bills LB Tremaine Edmunds (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers. He missed practice all week and seems like a risky IDP option even if active. DTs Ed Oliver (ankle) and Jordan Phillips (hamstring) are also questionable.

Bills WR Isaiah McKenzie (concussion) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Steelers. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday but still has work to do to clear protocol. We should get another update on McKenzie by Sunday morning. With WR Jamison Crowder and Jake Kumerow out with their ankle injuries, McKenzie's absence would leave rookie Khalil Shakir as Buffalo's #3 WR.

The Bills have ruled S Jordan Poyer out for Sunday's game against the Steelers because of his rib injury. S Damar Hamlin started in place of S Micah Hyde last week and should remain in the lineup. We'll see who replaces Poyer, who didn't miss a snap in the Week 4 win over Baltimore. Jaquan Johnson started next to Hamlin in Week 3, when Buffalo last went without both starting safeties. He looks like the best bet to join Hamlin again. We'd try to look elsewhere for IDP options in most cases.

Bills TE Dawson Knox (foot, hamstring) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Steelers. He's been banged up all season, so the week off should be good for him. Knox's absence leaves Buffalo with TEs Quintin Morris and Tommy Sweeney. Morris is the better bet for targets but would be a desperation fantasy play.

Colts RB Nyheim Hines sustained an apparent concussion on the 1st series of Thursday night's game vs. the Broncos. Hines stumbled as he tried to get off the field. So, after what happened recently with Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa, don't expect to see Hines back on the field tonight. That'll leave the Colts with RBs Phillip Lindsay and Deon Jackson.

Update: Hines has a concussion and is out for the rest of the game.

Bills TE Dawson Knox (foot, hamstring) remained sidelined on Thursday. He appears to be in real danger of missing this weekend's game vs. the Steelers, but we'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

Bills WR Isaiah McKenzie (concussion) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. That at least gives him a shot to be cleared in time for Sunday's game vs. the Steelers. We'll get another update on McKenzie's progress tomorrow.

Bills WR Isaiah McKenzie (concussion) did not practice on Wednesday. He has a ways to go in order to be cleared in time for Sunday's game vs. the Steelers. With WRs Jamison Crowder (ankle) out and WR Jake Kumerow (ankle) likely out, Buffalo might be down to rookie Khalil Shakir as its #3 WR.

Bills TE Dawson Knox (foot, hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday. He played through back and hip injuries last week but is now dealing with 2 different ailments. We'll see if Knox is able to practice tomorrow.

Bills WR Gabriel Davis (ankle) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice -- his 1st full practice since suffering that ankle injury on September 17. Davis has played a full allotment of snaps the past 2 games but clearly hasn't been at 100%. It looks like he'll be in much better shape for this weekend's game vs. the Steelers.

Bills WR Jamison Crowder broke his left ankle in Sunday's win over the Ravens, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Doctors are still determining the extent of other damage to the ankle, but Crowder is almost certainly done for the year. That should mean more control over the slot WR position for Isaiah McKenzie, who left Sunday's game with a concussion. If McKenzie can't go in Week 5, rookie Khalil Shakir might be running as a top 3 WR against Pittsburgh.
