It isn’t looking promising for the Buffalo Bills to have linebacker Nigel Bradham (ankle), cornerback Stephon Gilmore (shoulder) or running back Karlos Williams (shoulder) available for Sunday’s game against Philadelphia.
None of them practiced Wednesday.
Also not practicing were linebacker Tony Steward (back) and cornerback Ron Brooks (concussion protocol).
Guards Kraig Urbik (groin) and John Miller (ankle), wide receiver Chris Hogan (knee), and tight end Charles Clay (knee) were limited in practice. Offensive tackle Seantrel Henderson, who missed last Sunday’s win against Houston with an illness, was a full participant.
Rob Ryan, Rex’s twin brother who was recently fired as defensive coordinator of the New Orleans Saints, was spotted walking off the practice field Wednesday wearing Bills gear.
The Bills have said nothing about him serving in any official capacity with the team, although there is strong speculation around the NFL that he is at least doing some unofficial advisory work while being paid by the Saints.
The Bills added two players to their practice squad Wednesday: center Ronald Patrick and tight end Marcel Jenkins.
The 6-foot-1, 310-pound Patrick joined the Dallas Cowboys in 2014 as an undrafted free agent from South Carolina. He also has spent time with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Carolina Panthers and Cleveland Browns.
The 6-6, 270-pound Jensen joined the Jacksonville Jaguars last year as an undrafted free agent from Fresno State. He also has spent time with the Denver Broncos and Atlanta Falcons. Jensen appeared in one game for Jacksonville as a rookie, catching a pass for eight yards.
