During his weekly appearance on WGR550, Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott has ruled out offensive lineman Ryan Bates and defensive tackle Jordan Phillips for Saturday night's game against the Miami Dolphins.
Bates has been dealing with an ankle injury coming out of the Jets game last week and has been unable to practice so far this week. Phillips is nursing a shoulder injury from the end of the New England game two weeks ago and is set to miss his second consecutive game.
Other names to keep an eye on as we get closer to game day include linebacker Matt Milano (knee), fullback Reggie Gilliam (ankle), and defensive tackle Ed Oliver (pectoral).
McDermott said all three are improving and Milano will try to participate a bit in practice on Thursday.
The Bills' full injury report will come out following Thursday's practice.
