Bills starter Gaines questionable to play against Bengals
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Bills coach Sean McDermott says it’s uncertain whether starting cornerback E.J. Gaines will play in Buffalo’s game at Cincinnati on Sunday.
Gaines will be listed as questionable because of a groin injury.
In updating the status on other injured players, McDermott says he’s “fairly confident” defensive end Shaq Lawson will return after missing one game with a groin injury.
As expected, starting receiver Jordan Matthews and starting linebacker Ramon Humber have been ruled out after both broke thumbs in a 23-17 win at Atlanta last weekend.
At 3-1, the Bills lead the AFC East and are off to their best start since opening the 2011 season with four wins in their first five games.
