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.

Coach Chan Gailey said TE Scott Chandler's head injury "seems to be minor."

Per the Bills' website, Chandler got "cold-cocked" by Patriots LB Brandon Spikes and never returned. Wideout Donald Jones also left with a head injury. "(Scott) and Donald both got dinged a little bit, but it seems to be minor," said Gailey. "It seems like they'll be okay." Even a mild concussion would put Chandler in doubt for Week 5 against the 49ers.

Bills TE Scott Chandler hauled in four balls for 62 yards and two touchdowns before exiting the team's Week 4 game with a head injury.

The "head injury" designation is often a concussion, although we'll need more information to confirm that. Chandler similarly got off to a red-hot scoring pace last year, only to fade before being placed on I.R. We don't doubt he can vie for double-digit touchdowns if he stays healthy, though. Harvard grad Ryan Fitzpatrick smartly looks for Chandler deep in the red area. Chandler has capitalized for four touchdowns through four games.
