Injury concerns regarding players heading into the Sunday and Monday games can be critical. Each Saturday, this entry will be dedicated to those who appear on the official weekly NFL game status injury report and how their status might impact fantasy teams.

When the veteran Buffalo Bills cornerback resorted to taking an eight-hour Uber ride from Chicago to Buffalo to avoid missing a voluntary practice in June, his unusual decision made national headlines. Coach Sean McDermott praised Wright at the time for his commitment to the team, and defensive backs coach Gill Byrd had Wright share his story with teammates. Four months later, the story has repeated itself -- this time with Bills practice squad wide receiver Brandon Reilly. Reilly, an undrafted rookie from

Your Miami Dolphins travel up to Georgia this week to take on one of the better teams in the NFL, the Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons are coming off of their bye week and will be well rested and looking for a rebound after losing their first game of the season two weeks ago to the Buffalo Bills. Your Phins, on the other hand, have struggled this season, mostly on offense as the defense has, for the most part, held up their part of the bargain. Even in victory things have looked ugly for the Dolphins this year. They will need what will amount to a monumental turn around on offense this week to have a hope against a stout, balanced Atlanta team. Please use this live game thread to discuss today’s

One of the most highly anticipated matchups of Week 6 will take place in MetLife Stadium on Sunday and it involves the tenants not named the New York Giants. There’s a ton on the line for the New York Jets — yes, those New York Jets — as they play the New England Patriots in a big AFC East battle. The division wasn’t supposed to look like this, but the Patriots have been hobbled by injury, leaving room for the Jets and the Buffalo Bills, who have a bye this week, to fight it out in a division that usually belongs to the Pats.
The Buffalo Bills returned to work Monday to find themselves sitting in a playoff position through six weeks of the NFL season. Thanks to a bevy of surprising results around the league Sunday, the Bills are sitting in fifth place overall in the AFC with a 3-2 record. Bills head coach Sean McDermott said Monday of the bye week, it was "good to get home and reconnect with the family," but he also admitted that he was paying attention to what was happening around the league. Not many NFL observers gave the Bills much of a chance to compete for a playoff berth this season, and the joke around western New York, and perhaps beyond, was that their playoff drought would officially be old enough to vote by season's end, a full 18 years.
In the first half of their game on Sunday, Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston was forced to exit the game with a right shoulder injury. Former Buffalo Bills QB Ryan Fitzpatrick took over for Winston and almost led the Bucs to victory. However, this injury could have implications for the Bills, who play Winston and the Bucs on Sunday in Orchard Park. After their loss on Sunday, Winston seemed to put to bed any doubts of his status moving forward. When asked if he has ever missed time for an injury before, the Bucs QB responded by saying “I have came out [of a game] before but I don’t think I’ve missed a game,” Winston said. “I don’t think I’m going to miss a game either.” An MRI confirmed
On the current Buffalo Bills roster, three potential starters and cornerstones to the team could call it quits after this season. Kyle Williams, Richie Incognito, and Lorenzo Alexander would be 35 years old by this time next year. They've been in the NFL for over 10 years and Father Time waits for no one. Kyle Williams Williams was a 5th round pick in 2006 by the Bills and he turned out to be a late-round diamond in the rough. He's made five trips to the pro bowl and earned a second-team All-Pro selection in the 2010 season. So far in his career he has racked up 548 total tackles and 41.5 sacks, as an interior defensive lineman those numbers are extremely impressive. Williams has been the heart
