ORCHARD PARK, NY – For the most part, the Buffalo Bills have remained relatively healthy over the first two and a half weeks of the regular season. However, ahead of Week 3, the status of one key player remains in question.
According to head coach Sean McDermott, an ankle sprain that DT Marcell Darues suffered in Week 2 could keep him out of action this Sunday when the Denver Broncos visit New Era Field.
“I am concerned,” McDermott said in regards to Dareus’ availability for Week 3. “It’s day-to-day at this point but we have to make sure we have a contingency plan in place.”McDermott
McDermott also announced that Dareus wouldn’t practice on Wednesday. The Bills contingency plan could include DT Deandre Coleman, who the team announced they had re-signed minutes before McDermott addressed the media.
Several other Bills will be held out of practice as well, including LT Cordy Glenn, who apparently injured his right foot. Glenn was already dealing with pain in his left foot throughout training camp and the preseason. DE Shaq Lawson remains day-to-day with what is being called a nerve contusion and DT Jerel Worthy is still in the concussion protocol.
Both LB Lorenzo Alexander and RB LeSean McCoy received a rest day on Wednesday.
