Scott Chandler TE BUF Dec 23 '12

Scott Chandler suffered a knee injury in Sunday's game against the Dolphins and will not return.

Chandler was injured on a 25-yard catch on the second play of the game and immediately ruled out. The exact severity isn't known, but considering it's a knee injury this is likely a season ender. The Bills will be forced to finish Sunday's game with Lee Smith as their starting tight end.

Although he remained limited in Friday's practice, Scott Chandler (foot) is officially probable for Week 16.

The touchdown-dependent fantasy option has found the end zone just twice since Week 4. You can hopefully do better for championship week.

Scott Chandler (groin) returned for Thursday's practice.

Even a limited practice would put Chandler on track to play versus the Dolphins this week. He's 19th in Rotoworld's Week 16 rankings.

Scott Chandler (groin) was absent from Bills practice Wednesday.

Chandler was limited last Wednesday before ultimately being listed as probable and starting against the Seahawks in Toronto. However, QB Ryan Fitzpatrick did allow afterward that Chandler was "fighting through some things." Consider Chandler an even shakier than usual TE2 for the fantasy finals.

Scott Chandler caught five passes for 58 yards in the Bills' Week 15 loss to the Seahawks.

Scott Chandler (groin) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

It's very likely that this is simply a case of the Bills limiting Chandler's reps, and we expect him to be available for the Bills' Week 15 showdown against the Seahawks. Chandler has topped 60 yards just three times this season, and remains a mid-range TE2 option.

Scott Chandler caught five passes for 71 yards in Buffalo's Week 14 loss to the Rams.

Stretching the seams, Chandler caught all five of his targets, while the 71 yards were a season high. However, considering today was just the third time since Week 6 that Chandler caught more than two passes, he remains a middling TE2 for the fantasy playoffs.

Scott Chandler caught just two passes for 26 yards in Week 12 versus the Colts.

Chandler was a non-factor for much of the game and didn't see a target until early in the second half. Indianapolis has played extremely well against opposing tight ends this season, so Chandler shouldn't have seen fantasy lineups this week. He'll face another stingy Jacksonville defense when it comes to tight ends in Week 13.

Scott Chandler caught two passes for 30 yards against the Dolphins in Week 11.

Coming off of his best game of the season in Week 10 against the Patriots, Chandler was targeted just four times against the Fins. He did see his standard end zone target, but the quick slant pass was broken up in the closing seconds of the first half. Chandler is no more than a TE2 and will have a tough time with the Colts' stingy safeties and linebackers in Week 12.

Scott Chandler reeled in five passes for 65 yards and a touchdown in Week 10 against the Patriots.

Chandler had gone ice cold in recent weeks, and the touchdown score on Sunday was his first since Week 4. The big-bodied tight end caught five of his seven targets and was consistently finding holes in the defense in front of the safeties. Chandler's touchdown came from three yards out where Dont'a Hightower didn't even cover him. He's no more than a TE2.
