ORCHARD PARK, NY- For once on the injury front there is some good news for the Bills. Rex Ryan said Monday that both LeSean McCoy and Sammy Watkins came through Sunday's game with Jacksonville with "no issues."
McCoy was coming off thumb surgery for an injury suffered in the Bengals game. Watkins missed 8 games on injured reserve while recovering from a foot injury.
Ryan said the Bills won't push Watkins too hard during the week and will keep a carefull eye on the number of snaps he gets in the game too..
"I don't want to place any number on it, will he get more or less or whatever. We'll be smart with him. We'll be smart through the week, as well. We're not going to overdo him on the practice field. We need him healthy, and recongnizing that he's had a lot of time off – hasn't done a whole lot of football activity. We've got to balance that. Obviously we all want to get him on the field for the entire game, but I don't know if that's the best thing for him and our football team."
Ryan said backup running back Mike Gillislee is on track to return to the lineup. He said cornerback Ronald Darby is in concussion protocol and that Marcell Dareus has an abdominal strain. Dareus is being monitored by the medical staff.
The Bills are at Oakland Sunday afternoon..
