Buffalo Bills Week 9 Injury Report


The Buffalo BIlls head into their Week 9 matchup with the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs in a state of relative health. Many of their injured players were full participants in practice on Friday, which bodes well for their chances to both play and be effective on Sunday.

One notable exception is the quarterback position. After losing Kevin Kolb and EJ Manuel to injuries, and moving past Jeff Tuel on the depth chart due to ineffectiveness, it appears as if the Bills will also be missing Thad Lewis whom has filled in admirable since Manuel went down.

The Bills have publicly stated that it is still possible that Lewis will start Sunday, it seems unlikely after he was only able to practice once all week, and that was in a limited fashion.
