The Bills have activated WR Zay Jones from the non-football injury list. ESPN's Mike Rodak reports that Jones will practice with the team Sunday in a red non-contact jersey. He had been out since the start of training camp while recovering from May knee surgery. We'll watch his progress in a WR corps that's wide open behind top target Kelvin Benjamin, but don't expect Jones to become more than a late-round option -- and not even much of a lottery ticket there given his situation.

The Bills placed WR Zay Jones on the active/non-football injury list. He underwent shoulder surgery in January and knee surgery in May. According to ESPN's Mike Rodak, it's the knee that's keeping Jones sidelined now. We haven't heard timetable for his return. Jones needs all the reps he can get after a brutal rookie season that saw him corral just 36.5% of his targets. He's still in the driver's seat for Buffalo's #2 WR job but is just a late-round flier in fantasy drafts right now.

Bills WR Zay Jones is on track to be ready for the start of training camp, HC Sean McDermott said Thursday. Jones had surgery to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder in January and then another procedure on his knee in May. That followed a dreadful rookie campaign that saw him haul in just 27 of 74 targets (36.5%) for 316 yards and 2 scores. There's plenty of opportunity in a thin Bills WR corps, but Jones has a lot to prove.

Bills WR Zay Jones will miss the offseason program following mid-May knee surgery. HC Sean McDermott made the announcement on Thursday. Jones missed 1 game with a knee issue last year, while he also underwent shoulder surgery in January. The 23-year-old remains a clear candidate to win Buffalo's #2 role, as their WR depth is perhaps the weakest league-wide. But red flags beyond health -- like his rocky rookie year and suspect QB play -- figure to limit his fantasy upside.

Bills WR Zay Jones is scheduled for surgery this coming week to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder. Jones reportedly played the majority of the season with the injury -- although it's unclear exactly when it occurred. It might help explain his woefully inefficient rookie campaign. Jones caught just 27 of 74 targets -- a hideous 36.5% catch rate -- for 316 yards and 2 TDs. The 2nd-rounder still has an inside track for a 2018 starting job, but he won't be more than a late-round flier in fantasy drafts.
