Scott Chandler TE BUF 3 Months

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 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.

Scott Chandler's two-year contract with the Bills is worth an average of $2.38 million per season.

The deal includes a $1.2 million signing bonus. It's actually less than Chandler made last year and contains no other guaranteed money beyond this season. The re-signing of Chandler won't prevent the Bills from drafting a tight end.

Bills re-signed TE Scott Chandler to a two-year contract.

Chandler drew no known interest elsewhere. Turning 29 over the summer, Chandler is coming off a "career-year" that saw him post 653 yards and two touchdowns. With an erratic E.J. Manuel at the helm and Chandler possessing next to no movement skills, he'll be lucky to finish 2014 as a TE2.
