Colts DT DeForest Buckner is questionable for Saturday's playoff opener against the Bills with an ankle injury. He has been listed with the same issue since Thursday of Week 15 but has yet to miss a game. Buckner followed the same practice participation this week as last -- out-out-limited -- but he finished last week with no injury designation. So it's possible the ankle is a bit worse this time around. Any limitation to Indy's best defensive lineman can obviously only help the Bills. We'll check his status when the inactives come out late Saturday morning.
Niners DT DeForest Buckner left Friday night's game against the Chiefs early with an ankle injury. The team quickly ruled him out for the game. We'll look for further details on the injury. Buckner played an exorbitant number of snaps as a rookie and delivered strong IDP numbers.
Niners DT DeForest Buckner left Wednesday's practice with a sprained left ankle. The Santa Rosa Press Democrat reports that Buckner got it taped on the sideline and tried to "walk it off" but could not return to the field. That makes the injury sound relatively minor, but we'll see how long he's out.
The 49ers have ruled DE DeForest Buckner out for Thursday night's game against the Cardinals because of a foot injury. Coaches had expressed optimism earlier in the week that Buckner would be able to play, so the 10-day layoff before a Week 6 meeting with the Bills should put the rookie in good shape to return.
