LB Jamie Collins (hip) and RB Brandon Bolden (knee) were removed from the injury report.
WR Julian Edelman (foot), DT Woodrow Hamilton (shoulder), WR Malcolm Mitchell (hamstring), LB Elandon Roberts (ankle), and DT Vincent Valentine (back) were all limited and are questionable for Sunday.
For Buffalo, Bills WR Marquise Goodwin (concussion) and S Aaron Williams (neck) are both out. Bills RB LeSean McCoy is doubtful and LT Cordy Glenn is questionable after neither practiced all week.
WR Robert Woods is “expected to give things a try on Sunday,” per the Bills team site, “but how long his foot will hold up if he plays is hard to predict.”
DT Corbin Bryant, TE Charles Clay, LB Lerentee McCray, DT Marcell Dareus, RB Mike Gillislee, LB Jerry Hughes, and OG John Miller were all limited and are questionable for Sunday.
