Scott Chandler TE BUF 9 Days

Chandler was targeted once and failed to register a catch in Sunday's win over Chicago.

This was the first time since late in the 2011 season that the big tight end failed to log a catch. Chandler is the clear-cut top tight end in this offense, but there are a good number of weapons and, like teammate Mike Williams, it seems like he'll serve this season as more of a red-zone threat and not a guy who gets more than a modest volume outside the opponent's 20-yard-line.

Chandler (knee) is not listed on the Bills' Wednesday practice participation/injury report.

Chandler's Week 1 status seems secure, and while he's not among the league's flashy fantasy options at tight end, he could carve out some utility in deeper formats in 2014, given that he and wideout Mike Williams figure to slot in as the team's top two red-zone targets.

Chandler (knee) is back practicing with the team Monday.

All signs point to Chandler being able to go Week 1 after missing the final preseason game against Detroit. Chandler probably won't get as many catches as the NFL's top tight ends in this offense, but he and receiver Mike Williams are probably the team's top two red zone targets.

Chandler didn't play Thursday's preseason game against the Lions due to a knee injury, the Buffalo News reports.

The exact details about Chandler's knee injury haven't been released, but it's likely a minor injury that won't stop him from playing in the regular season opener against the Bears in Chicago. If he's unable to play for whatever reason, Lee Smith will stand the most to gain.

Chandler (groin) made his 2014 preseason debut Friday against the Carolina Panthers

Chandler failed to haul in his only target, but the important thing is that he got back on the field. He's still locked in as the Bills' top tight end, with the guys behind him either hurt and/or unimpressive.

Chandler (groin) participated in 11-on-11 drills during Tuesday's practice.

Chandler was full-go in 7-on-7 drills, and eventually moved on to team scrimmages, confirming an earlier report that he'd be back in action Tuesday. He's expected to serve as the Bills No. 1 tight end in 2014, which should place him in the 75-80 target range.

Bills TE Scott Chandler (knee surgery) has been cleared for team drills.

Chandler opened OTAs limited after his scope, but he's progressed to 11-on-11s and should be 100 percent long before training camp. "I'm progressing back in rehab and stuff, feeling a lot better," said Chandler. "It's been a big step for me, got to get in there a little bit more with the team work." Chandler, now 29 years old, will remain a low-ceiling TE2 in 2014 fantasy leagues.

Bills TE Scott Chandler (knee surgery) is not participating in OTAs.

Tony Moeaki, Chris Gragg, and blocker Lee Smith are picking up extra reps. We wouldn't be surprised if a healthy Moeaki cut into Chandler's snaps once he gets healthy. Chandler finished 2013 with a 53-655-12.4-2 receiving line.
