Hunter Henry (concussion) practiced again on Thursday.
Coach Mike McCoy said Wednesday that was he "hopeful" Henry would suit up against the Broncos this week. Practicing for the second day in a row is a step in the right direction. Henry played well against Denver the last time he faced them (six catches, 83 yards, one touchdown) and will be a TE1 if he plays on Sunday.
Travis Benjamin (knee) returned to practice on Thursday.
Wednesday was just a rest day for Benjamin. The fifth-year wideout has taken on a surprisingly significant role in the Chargers' passing game but won't be more than a back-end WR3 this week in a tough matchup with Denver.
Tyrell Williams (knee) remained sidelined on Thursday.
Uh oh. Wednesday was deemed a "rest day" for Williams, but it bodes poorly for his Week 8 status that he couldn't get back out there today. Williams have to get in a limited session on Friday to have a realistic chance of playing against the Broncos. Dontrelle Inman will see a big uptick in usage if Williams can't go.
Corey Coleman (hand) said "once I start catching, I'm playing."
Coleman resumed practicing this week but hasn't caught any passes yet. Beat writer Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer believes that could happen as soon as next week. With his return on the horizon, Coleman is worth picking up in all formats.
Bills coach Rex Ryan said he's "not real sure" about LeSean McCoy's availability for Week 8 against the Patriots.
Rather than giving him time to heal, the Bills foolishly allowed McCoy to play last week against Miami. He was ineffective before aggravating his hamstring and missing most of the second half. We're guessing the Bills will do the right thing and have Shady sit out this week. If that happens, Mike Gillislee would handle the lion's share of Buffalo's backfield work on Sunday.
NBC Denver reports C.J. Anderson's injury is a "significant" right meniscus tear, but that there is "hope" he'll be ready for the playoffs.
The Broncos won't learn the full extent of Anderson's injury until he goes under the knife Thursday. It's quite possible the surgeon discovers something that keeps him out for the rest of the 2016 season. Devontae Booker slides in as an immediate RB1, with Kapri Bibbs becoming the new handcuff in Denver.
Bills coach Rex Ryan said S Aaron Williams' head/neck issue could be a long-term injury.
He was hospitalized Sunday after getting injured on an illegal hit by Dolphins receiver Jarvis Landry. Williams missed most of last season with a serious neck injury and suffered a concussion on a frightening collision during training camp. It sounds like he could be in for another lengthy absence.
Bilal Powell (turf toe) was officially limited in Thursday's return to practice.
Powell could have just been testing his foot out, but he's now on track to suit up against the Browns. The Browns have one of the league's very worst defenses. Powell could be in for 8-10 touches if he's ready to go.
