Although he's participating in most of OTAs, the Bills remain concerned about Clay's lingering knee troubles, The Buffalo News reports. "We are concerned with Charles' knee situation," said new coach Sean McDermott. "It's something we have to manage moving forward in order to have him on the field for us, which is important moving forward. He's a weapon for us."

EDGE Analysis

Clay made it on the field for 15 games last season, but was a regular on the injury report with issues relating to his knee. While Clay has been a bit of a disappointment since the Bills signed him as a free agent two years ago, he's far better than the next option -- hopefully McDermott means they just need to be proactive in not letting it become a major issue through rest and being smart about it, rather than being concerned it could potentially keep him out of action.

Clay caught three of seven targets for 20 yards in Sunday's 30-10 loss to the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

Clay racked up 159 yards and four touchdowns over his previous three games, but miserable performances by E.J. Manuel and later Cardale Jones under center saw him come crashing back to earth. He struggled to consistently string productive games together due to the inconsistent passing game of the Bills and will look to establish himself as a steady option for the team next season.

Clay (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

Clay has picked up the pace of late and has now scored in three straight contests. In the Bills' season finale, he'll look to continue his momentum while serving as a safety valve for QB EJ Manuel, who is starting in place of Tyrod Taylor on Sunday.

Clay (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets after practicing in a limited fashion both Thursday and Friday.

EDGE Analysis

We'd expect Clay, who has now scored in three straight contests, to be available Sunday and in that case the tight end will look to continue his late-season push, while serving as a safety valve for QB EJ Manuel, who is set to replace Tyrod Taylor in Week 17.

Clay (knee) was limited at practice Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Clay was rested Wednesday, but his status for Sunday's season finale against the Jets is in little doubt at this stage. Clay, who has now scored in three straight outings, will look to continue his late-season surge with EJ Manuel at QB for the Bills this weekend instead of Tyrod Taylor.

Clay (knee) did not practice Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

We'll operate under the assumption that Clay's absence Wednesday was maintenance-related and that the tight end will be a go in the Bills' season finale Sunday against the Jets. Clay was on the field for 87 of 92 snaps on offense in this past Saturday's loss to the Dolphins, en route to catching eight passes (on 10 targets) for 85 yards and two TDs. He has now scored in three straight outings.

Clay (knee) secured eight of 10 targets for 85 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 34-31 overtime loss to the Dolphins.

EDGE Analysis

Clay touched up his former teammates for two key fourth-quarter touchdowns that spearheaded a Bills comeback. The sixth-year pro set season bests across the board with his performance, as his eight receptions, 10 targets and 85 yards were all high-water marks on the campaign. It was also Clay's first multi-touchdown game of the season, and the pair of scores give him four over the last three games. Clay will try to build on the 15 receptions for 157 yards he's amassed over the last two weeks when the Bills close out the regular season against the Jets next Sunday.

Clay (knee) is listed as active for Saturday's game against the Dolphins.

EDGE Analysis

Clay's overall fantasy output through his first 11 games was nothing to write home about, but the tight end's production has picked up over the Bills' last two outings and he's now logged TDs in consecutive games, en route combining for 10 catches and 124 receiving yards over that span.

Clay (knee) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Dolphins.

EDGE Analysis

Despite the questionable designation, Clay's availability for Saturday's 1:00 ET kickoff is in little doubt. After turning in 11 games worth of modest fantasy output out of the gate, the tight end's production has perked up over the last two weeks and he's now scored in consecutive games, while combining for 10 catches and 124 receiving yards over that span.
