Bills likely to miss Williams, Bradham | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

The Bills have listed DT Kyle Williams and OLB Nigel Bradham as doubtful for Sunday's clash with the Lions.  Both defenders are dealing with knee injuries suffered in Week 4 and missed practice all week.  Rookie Preston Brown will start in Bradham's place and continue to carry intriguing IDP upside.  He's worth starting in most fantasy leagues with defensive players.  We moved him way up the Week 5 IDP rankings.

Recent Shark Bites

Bills DE Shaq Lawson (hamstring) is active for today's game against the Texans. CB Levi Wallace (ankle) is OUT. Both players entered the day questionable. Wallace's absence leaves Buffalo without its starting outside CB opposite Tre'Davious White. That's good news for Houston WR Kenny Stills (with Will Fuller out).

Bills LB Matt Milano (hamstring) is out for today's game against the Jaguars. That should leave Ramon Humber returning to the OLB job he occupied to begin the season.

Bills LB Matt Milano missed practice Wednesday and Thursday with a hamstring injury and isn't expected to practice Friday, according to Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News. "Sounds like it will be tough for him to play" against the Jaguars on Sunday, Skurski tweeted. Add that to the Bills entering the game as 8- to 8.5-point underdogs, and we've removed Milano from the bottom of our playoff IDP rankings.

Bills DT Kyle Williams (groin) is active for today's game against the Colts after entering the day questionable. He's an upside D-line option in IDP leagues in a nice matchup. Buffalo will also have top CB Tre'Davious White, who was able to clear the concussion protocol this week after last Sunday's vicious cheap shot from Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski. Slot CB Leonard Johnson (knee), however, is inactive.

Bills OLB Ramon Humber (thumb) and S Jordan Poyer (knee) are active for tonight's game against the Jets. Poyer remains risky for IDP lineups. Humber's a better bet to make it through the game and to find tackle opportunities.
