How injuries may affect Bills vs. Ravens matchup
For it being Week 19 of the NFL season, the Buffalo Bills are coming into this weekend’s playoff game relatively healthy. Starting wideouts Stefon Diggs and Cole Beasley are battling through injuries, but both players had good performances in the super wild card round last week and were removed from the final injury report this week.
As for Buffalo’s defense, seeing both Tremaine Edmunds and Ed Oliver as full participants on Thursday is great news. Earlier in the week, Edmunds and Oliver were limited participants in practice due to their respective injuries. The Bills will need them both to help slow down a Ravens’ rushing attack spearheaded by superstar quarterback Lamar Jackson and emerging running back JK Dobbins.
