The Buffalo Bills are preparing to take on the Cincinnati Bengals in the next round of the NFL playoffs. Buffalo is hoping to get a few injured players back for this all-important contest, including wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie.

The sixth-year pro made a strong claim regarding his Divisional Round status on Wednesday.

McKenzie told reporters he's at the 90% mark in terms of his health. When asked if he'll suit up on Sunday, he said he will.

Getting McKenzie back would give the Bills a nice boost ahead of this clash with the Cincinnati. The former 2017 draft pick enjoyed a breakout year this season, recording a career-high 423 yards to go along with 4 touchdowns.

Buffalo has deployed the duo of Cole Beasley and rookie Khalil Shakir in the slot with McKenzie sidelined. Should he return, Buffalo will have a bevy of options to choose from as the third receiver alongside Stefon Diggs and Gabe Davis.

The Bills are currently listed as 5-point favorites ahead of facing the Bengals, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds.
