Dolphins RB Matt Breida missed Wednesday's practice with a hamstring injury. HC Brian Flores only said Thursday that Breida "has a chance" to play against the Cardinals this weekend. With RB Myles Gaskin (knee) on IR, Breida's absence would leave Miami down to RBs Jordan Howard, Patrick Laird and newly acquired DeAndre Washington.

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.

The forecast for today's Patriots-Bills game calls for a chance of rain and 20 mph sustained winds with gusts over 30. That certainly puts a damper on the passing games. New England figured to go run-heavy anyway, so the bigger impact is on Josh Allen and Co. We'd also avoid both kickers in this game.

Saints WR Emmanuel Sanders (COVID) is expected back for Week 9, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. WR Michael Thomas (hamstring, ankle) seems to be trending toward returning for that one, too. It's all good news for QB Drew Brees, although Thomas' return would keep Sanders' target projection in check.

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 S Micah Hyde missed Wednesday's practice and is in the concussion protocol after a collision late in Sunday's win over the Jets. We'll see about his progress, but don't bet on him facing the Patriots this Sunday. Jaquan Johnson looks like the next man up if Hyde sits.

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.

Saints WR Emmanuel Sanders has been placed on the COVID list. He'll miss Sunday's game against the Panthers -- and potentially more action beyond that. We'll see if WR Michael Thomas (hamstring, ankle) is able to play this weekend.

Bills WR Dawson Knox (calf) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Jets. Tyler Kroft gets another game as Buffalo’s lead TE but isn’t a fantasy option.

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 CB Tre'Davious White (back) is questionable for Monday's game against the Chiefs. White practiced in full Friday and Saturday after missing last week's game against the Titans. Barring any setback, he seems on track to play. We'll confirm his status Monday.

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 RB Zack Moss (toe) put in a full week of practice and isn't listed on the final Week 6 injury report. The rookie will return for Monday night's game against the Chiefs as the #2 RB behind Devin Singletary.

Bills RB Zack Moss (toe) put in a full practice on Thursday. So he should be back for Monday night's game vs. the Chiefs. The rookie worked in a committee behind Devin Singletary over the first 2 weeks, totaling 17 carries and 4 targets. Expect similar usage going forward.

5:10pm EDT 10/13/20

Bills RB Zack Moss (toe) is inactive for tonight’s game against the Titans. It’s a surprise after the rookie put in a full practice on Saturday. Devin Singletary will remain close to an every-down back for Buffalo tonight.

As of 12:30 pm ET on Sunday, the Bills-Titans game remains on for Tuesday night. There's still plenty of time for that to change, so you'll need to decide for yourself whether you want to risk leaving Bills and Titans players in your lineups. It'd be nice to at least have backup options available from Monday night's Chargers-Saints game. We've left our full projections in place for Bills and Titans players in the Week 5 Rankings.

Bills RB Zack Moss (toe) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Titans. He put in a full practice on Saturday, so we're expecting the rookie to play. He's a risky RB3 or Flex in his 1st game back, but his return knocks Devin Singletary down to lower-end RB2 territory.

Bills RB Zack Moss (toe) has remained limited in practice so far this week. We’ll see how he’s listed on the final injury report tomorrow for Tuesday’s game against the Titans. Moss’ return would put a dent in RB Devin Singletary’s projected volume.

This week's Bills-Titans game has been moved to Tuesday at 6 pm ET, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. That's only if Tennessee has no more positive COVID tests, though. It's unclear what will happen to this game if the Titans have more positives, but we know that it won't be part of Week 5. The good news is that it sounds like we'll know for sure whether we'll have Bills and Titans players available for fantasy lineups this week within the next 24 hours.
