Buffalo Bills at Miami Dolphins Injury Updates

Emmanuel Sanders says he will practice fully on Friday; Fellow WR Gabriel Davis (ankle) went from DNP on Wednesday to limited on Thursday.

After being held out of Wednesday's practice with a "lower body injury," Buffalo Bills wide receiver Gabriel Davis was back on the field Thursday as a partial participant, his right ankle wrapped but not limiting his movements much.

His absence, coupled with a lingering foot injury fellow wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders has been trying to work through and a shoulder injury that limited another receiver, Isaiah McKenzie, on Wednesday could have been cause for concern heading into Sunday's road game with the Miami Dolphins.

Davis scored the team's only touchdown last Sunday in a 23-16 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Sanders caught four passes for 52 yards, and McKenzie averaged 35.8 yards on four kickoff returns, including a 75-yarders to open the game.

But Sanders, who was given Thursday off, told reporters he will be back as a full participant on Friday, and McKenzie able to practice with no restrictions in Thursday.

What it all means is that there's a good chance all will be available for the Dolphins game.
