Bills safety Aaron Williams was diagnosed with a neck injury – but not a concussion – after taking a high hit in Sunday’s loss at Miami, Rex Ryan said.
Williams was among a host of Bills players not practicing Wednesday in advance of Sunday's matchup with New England. Running back LeSean McCoy (hamstring) was also in that group but was seen riding an exercise bike during practice.
Ryan implied Williams is unlikely to play against the Patriots but seemed slightly more optimistic on McCoy and defensive tackle Marcell Dareus.
On the wide receiver front, Robert Woods (foot) was able to return to practice in a limited function Wednesday, though Marquise Goodwin (concussion) has not yet been cleared to play.
Ryan also said that Sammy Watkins (foot), who’s eligible to come off injured reserve for the Nov. 28 game, is no longer in a walking boot. Additionally, Ryan said it’s possible that Kolby Listenbee (hernia) and Marcus Easley (knee) might not play at all this season.
Running back Mike Gillislee, who was limited with a foot injury, said the injury occurred in Sunday's game, sort of.
"I wore a pair of new cleats," he said. "The next day I was just real sore. I got treatment and everything. Just swelled up a little bit. It’s better now."
