Benjamin declared out for Sunday, McCoy misses practice but is expected to play

December 1, 2017

Kelvin Benjamin has officially been declared out for the Bills’ week 13 contest against the New England Patriots. 

Despite being considered day-to-day and working with trainers this week during practices, the wideout will miss his second straight game after suffering a torn meniscus in his knee two Sundays ago against the Los Angles Chargers.

Running back LeSean McCoy missed practice Friday with knee soreness, but he’s expected to play and wasn't even be listed on the team's official injury report for the game, released Friday afternoon.

That’s not the case for OT Cordy Glenn, OG John Miller, and FB Mike Tolbert.  All will be out against the 9-2 Patriots, while FB Patrick DiMarco and DE Eddie Yarbrough are both questionable, but both appear on track to play.  TE Nick O’Leary is also questionable, but his status was very much up-in-the-air as of Friday.  He did participate in Friday's practice after missing the previous two days.  OT Conor McDermott also apeared as questionable on the final injury report after being limited in practice Friday with a chest injury.

WR Jordan Matthews and TE Charles Clay are also both questionable, but were last week, as well, and still played in the team's game at Kansas City.

For the Patriots, WR Chris Hogan and OL Marcus Cannon missed practice once again Friday and it appears both will miss their fourth straight game Sunday.  New England has several other players banged up whose status will be declared later in the day.

Here's the Bills official injury report for the game:
