The Buffalo Bills welcomed back several players to practice on Wednesday afternoon at One Bills Drive.
The biggest news of the day came before practice when head coach Sean McDermott announced CB Tre'Davious White would start practicing with the team and begin his 21-day activation window off the PUP list. White was spotted at practice in a red non-contact jersey during the open portion and embraced several players on the team, including defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier and QB Josh Allen.
The Bills received more good news as the following players were able to practice, either in a limited participation or full participation after dealing with injuries in recent weeks:
- CB Christian Benford (hand) — Limited participation
- LB Tremaine Edmunds (hamstring) — Limited participation
- TE Dawson Knox (foot/hamstring) — Limited participation
- WR Isaiah McKenzie (Concussion) — Full participation
- DT Ed Oliver (ankle) — Full participation
- DT Jordan Phillips (hamstring) — Limited participation
- S Jordan Poyer (Ribs) — Limited participation
McKenzie and Oliver both earned full participation tags. McKenzie cleared concussion protocol that kept him out of Week 5, while Oliver had his first full participation day since Week 1. Oliver injured his ankle against the Rams and missed the Bills' next three games but returned last week against the Steelers.
DT Jordan Phillips had to exit the Steelers game with a hamstring injury but he practiced in a limited fashion on Wednesday.
TE Dawson Knox was also back on the field after missing Sunday with a foot/hamstring injury. The tight end logged a limited practice in advance of Week 6. In Week 5 of last season, Knox had 117 receiving yards and 1 TD in Buffalo's 38-20 win at the Chiefs.
Benford suffered a hand injury in Week 2 against Miami and has been unable to play or practice until Wednesday. Benford was spotted with a red non-contact jersey.
Lastly, Poyer, who leads the NFL with 4 INTs despite missing two games, was able to be a limited participant on Wednesday after not practicing all of last week.
