Friday update: Moss got in another limited practice and is listed as questionable to play against the Jaguars. His main hurdle appears to be getting cleared from the concussion protocol.
Thursday update: Moss returned to practice, but was in a non-contact jersey. This is still a good sign though, as he has likely progressed in the concussion protocol to get to this point.

RB Zack Moss has returned to practice in a non-contact jersey. Still in concussion protocol
Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott told reporters on Wednesday that running back will not practice as he’s still in the concussion protocol, per Chris Brown. Moss suffered the head injury in last week’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Fantasy football implications
The second-year running back left last Sunday’s game in third quarter with a concussion. At that point in the game, Moss only had six yards on three carries, along with two receptions (four targets) for 18 yards. The young running back splits carries with another young back in Devin Singletary.
If Moss does not clear the protocol in time for Sunday’s game against the New York Jets, then we could see an increase workload for Singletary. In last week’s game against the Jags, Singletary had 16 yards on six carries, but seven receptions (eight targets) for 43 yards. The Jets have had issues with running backs in the passing game this season, which could bode well for Singletary and the Bills’ offense.
