The Bills are holding their first practice of the week Wednesday in preparation for the Divisional round playoff game against the Chiefs.
The team was able to get to the facility safely in the morning and will hold their usual day of meetings and practice.
Before practice, head coach Sean McDermott met with the media to give another injury update on several key players.
CB Christian Benford, LB Terrel Bernard, WR Gabe Davis, P Sam Martin, LB Baylon Spector and S Taylor Rapp will not participate in today's practice. Those players are still day-to-day moving forward.
There is good news, however, as CB Rasul Douglas and LB Tyrel Dodson will practice Wednesday.
CB Taron Johnson will be limited, but is still in concussion protocol.
Additionally, McDermott said "there's hope" that Bernard's ankle injury is not serious as it was believed to be.
"I think there's hope. He's in meetings this morning. It looked, in the way he was carted off, I'm thankful, that it could have been way worse. So we'll just take it one day at a time," McDermott said.
Haack signed to practice squad
The Bills signed punter Matt Haack to the practice squad, the team announced Wednesday.
With current punter Sam Martin working through a hamstring injury suffered in the Wild Card game, Buffalo is bringing back Haack in case Martin is unavailable for this week's Divisional Round game against the Chiefs.
"Sam's situation, just not really sure where that's going to end up and so it gives us some flexibility there and there's not really a change at this point to Sam status," McDermott said. "We'll just see how that goes as well."
Haack spent the 2021 season as the Bills punter, and played in all 17 games of the regular season. He averaged 42.9 yards per punt and a net average of 38.4 yards.
In 2022 with the Indianapolis Colts, Haack set career bests in both average punt (44.8) and net average (41.2).
