Friday PM update: Sanders has been removed from the injury report in Week 16, He should be in for a good workload with Davis and Beasley out.
Friday AM update: The Bills are optimistic about Emmanuel Sanders returning this weekend against the Patriots, per Jeremy Fowler. This is big because the team is going to be down Cole Beasley and Gabriel Davis in their receiver corps.
Buffalo Bills wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders was a full participant in practice on Thursday ahead of the team’s Week 16 division showdown at the New England Patriots this Sunday. He was listed as a limited participant in the team’s walkthrough practice on Wednesday.
Sanders suffered a knee injury in the team’s Week 14 overtime loss to the Buccaneers two weeks ago. That injury kept him sidelined from the Bills’ victory over the Panthers this past Sunday but it’s looking like he’ll be good to go for this all-important AFC East showdown against the Patriots.
The veteran receiver has been productive in his first season in Buffalo, raking in decent numbers. Through 13 games this year, he has hauled in 40 of 68 targets for 606 yards and four touchdowns as the Bills fight for playoff positioning.
Fantasy football implications
Sanders being a full participant in practice on Thursday is a clear indicator that he’ll be good to go for Sunday.
