Friday's NFL injury and roster news for Week 2

The Buffalo Bills will be without two key defensive pieces Sunday against the Miami Dolphins.

Coach Sean McDermott said Friday on WGR 550 in Buffalo that both linebackers Tremaine Edmunds (shoulder) and Matt Milano (hamstring) will be out for Week 2. The team would then announce the news on Friday morning.

The absence will leave a big hole in the middle of a stout Bills D. In Week 1, Milano compiled four tackles and an INT while Edmunds earned three tackles in the Bills’ season-opening win over the Jets.

Here are the other news, injuries and transactions we’re tracking Friday:

  • Philadelphia Eagles coach Doug Pederson said he’s optimistic running back Miles Sanders (hamstring) and defensive end Derek Barnett (hamstring) will play in Sunday’s home-opener against the Rams after both players practiced in full on Thursday. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reports Sanders is expected to play after missing Week 1. Regarding the Eagles’ offensive line, Pederson revealed Friday that Nate Herbig will start at right guard against the Rams. The undrafted rookie made his debut at that spot in light of Lane Johnson’s absence due to injury.
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Chris Godwin returned to the practice field on Friday after successfully going through the league’s concussion protocol, NFL Network’s James Palmer reports.
  • The Arizona Cardinals have signed kicker Mike Nugent to their practice squad, the team announced. The 15-year veteran had a short stint with the Patriots in 2019.
  • Detroit Lions coach Matt Patricia says wide receiver Kenny Golladay (hamstring) will be ‘very limited’ for Friday’s practice. Golladay is in danger of missing the first two games of the 2020 season.
