Buffalo Bills Injury News

Buffalo has a relatively clean bill of health coming into the AFC Championship, with only a few issues.

While Zack Moss is out for the year, they still have Devin Singletary, who’s fully capable of taking the lead back role.

Stefon Diggs was limited in practice to start the week with his oblique injury, but it was the same story the past two weeks and he has had 100+ yard, 1 TD performances in both playoff games so far. 

Gabriel Davis’ ankle held him entirely out of practice, but the Bills still have a wealth of receiving talent even if he is not available.

They are looking good on defense, but it is worth noting that Vernon Butler is dealing with a quad injury. Their pass rushers and secondary are in good shape, which is crucial as they take on Patrick Mahomes in Kansas City.

Kansas City Chiefs Injury News

The Chiefs are managing a couple fires as they are set to host their third straight AFC Championship.

First and foremost, the status of Patrick Mahomes is monumental to their game plan. Their quarterback was initially listed as a full participant with a concussion/toe tag, but was retroactively changed to limited. However, even a limited practice is good news for his progress through concussion protocol, and we have even pointed to the possibility that he did not truly suffer a concussion, but a vasovagal reaction caused by a hit to his open neck.

Regardless, it has been our belief that Mahomes will indeed start over Chad Henne, and he appears to be on track.

Across this offense, Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Sammy Watkins are progressing in their returns, but there are still questions across this offensive line as they are playing without 3 of their starters.

With Mitchell Schwartz, Kelechi Osemele and Laurent Duvernay-Tardif out, they have had to plug in depth players and this is something Buffalo could exploit.

On defense, Willie Gay has yet to practice with his ankle injury, and corners Bashaud Breeland (concussion/shoulder) and Rashad Fenton (foot) were limited to start the week.
