Just one more thing to factor in when deciding which wide receivers make the cut next week...

#Bills HC Sean McDermott said that WR Robert Foster has been working through a toe injury that he sustained in the spring workouts. Said he's liked what Foster has done in practice, has made some plays.

I prefer that over him just not showing up so far... This means he could be a mid-season revelation... again!

I think it will be a toe to toe race. Neither has a foot up on the other.

I'm thinking he may be an IR candidate if they like 6 other WRs.

 

Why? So they have to reach an injury settlement and release him like the other short term players they put on IR??

Spring was a long time ago. Must be a bad injury. 

 

When you are playing every day it gives a big chance to either reinjure it or not let it heal.

If he has turf toe (ie, a torn toe ligament), that’d explain a lot. It’s a bad, lingering injury. Given that it happened in spring, i wouldn’t be surprised if that’s what it is.

I think Foster is a larger part of the offense then the preseason has Indicated.  The preseason means nothing.  They are not running the offense they will run in the Meadowlands.  Yes, Beasley and Allen need a level of chemistry.  Beasley is the safety valve.  Knowing when and where he will be is important.  Hitting Brown, and Foster for chunk plays will not go away.

It’s been mentioned a few times about his foot.... I know the first day of Carolina joint practices he hurt it... 

 

I think Bills keep 7 WRs initially especially since 4 of them are playing STs

Better be.    Guy can take the top off a defense. 

 

Zay gets locked down until garbage time.

No.  I'm thinking more along the lines of he makes the 53 but then is put on IR

But if the player doesn't want to sit on IR til week 8 when he is healthy enough to play in week 1, he will ask for his injury release off IR.

My wife dances ballet and has a turf toe situation. It is flat out nasty. It explains a lot. I can't imagine running and cutting on it.

True but if it is really hampering him it could be a blessing.

Hope it’s not turf toe but sounds like a real possibility. 

 

I think there are different degrees of turf toe, I’m assuming his is mild or he would not be playing at all right now.

You may be right.  Foster though hasn't been the same player so maybe his injury is more significant.  We shall see.
