Three of Buffalo’s most important starters on offense are working their way back from injuries this week. Even though none of them are a lead pipe lock to play on Sunday, head coach Dick Jauron is staying positive.
“I’m pretty optimistic,” he said. “We’ll obviously know more (Friday) than we do today.”
“Yes,” Jauron said. “But you just never know.”
Lynch participated in individual position drills on Thursday and not much else. With Thursday typically the hardest hitting practice of the week for the Bills, Jauron held Lynch out of contact work.
“We didn’t plan on him doing any of the hitting, the 9-on-7 drills, the blitz periods those kinds of things,” said Jauron. “But we did plan on him taking some team snaps. He was involved, but to a very limited degree.”
Buffalo’s head coach sounded more sure of the status of his starting quarterback
“With Trent he’s taken almost all the snaps for two days,” said Jauron. “Again you never know how he’ll tolerate it, but he looked pretty good.”
“With Jason, I’m fairly optimistic about him,” he said.
