Clay (knee) caught three of four targets for 27 yards in Sunday's 54-24 loss to the Chargers.

EDGE Analysis

Clay has been quiet in two games since returning from a knee injury that required arthroscopic surgery, but he did at least play 54 percent of Buffalo's offensive snaps Sunday. He handled 60 percent of the snaps and caught two passes for 13 yards on three targets the previous week against the Saints in another blowout loss. Clay could push back toward his usual snap share in the 80 percent range if the Bills can avoid yet another lopsided affair Week 12 in Kansas City.

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

EDGE Analysis

Following a three-game absence, Clay hauled in just two of three targets for 13 yards in last Sunday's 47-10 loss to the Saints, but with that contest under his belt, he could be more involved this weekend, assuming no setbacks with his knee. That's a scenario that could be in effect Sunday if the tight end holds up well enough to provide Buffalo's new starting signal-caller, Nathan Peterman, with a safety valve in the team's passing game.

Bills head coach Sean McDermott is optimistic Clay (knee) will play Sunday against the Chargers, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

EDGE Analysis

Clay was limited in practice Thursday and Friday, but with no reported setbacks in his knee after returning from a three-game absence following a knee scope, it appears he should be good to go Sunday.

Clay (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

EDGE Analysis

Clay was limited in practice for the second straight day Friday, which prevented him from being removed from the injury report heading into the Week 11 matchup. Despite carrying the questionable tag, Clay is generally expected to suit up Sunday after enduring no reported setbacks in his return to action Week 10 against the Saints following a three-game absence due to a knee scope. That will likely put Clay in store for an uptick from the 29 snaps he logged in the previous contest, though the presence of a new starter under center in rookie Nathan Peterman may leave the tight end hard pressed to match the strong numbers he posted with Tyrod Taylor at quarterback in the first five games of the season.

Clay (knee) returned to a limited practice Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Clay is thus on track to suit up Sunday against the Chargers, though it remains to be seen if he draws an official questionable designation for the contest, or is simply removed from the Bills' Week 11 injury report. In his return to action following a three-game absence, Clay caught just two of three targets for 13 yards in last Sunday's 47-10 loss to the Saints, but with a game under his belt, he could be more involved this weekend, especially if he ends up serving as a safety valve for Buffalo's new starting signal-caller, Nathan Peterman.

Clay (knee) didn't practice Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Clay returned from a month-long absence for Sunday's 47-10 loss to the Saints, catching two of three targets for 13 yards while playing 60 percent of the offensive snaps. With no setback reported, Clay likely is just missing practice for maintenance reasons ahead of Sunday's road game against the Chargers. Nathan Peterman will replace Tyrod Taylor as the starting quarterback.

Clay caught two of three targets for 13 yards in Sunday's 47-10 loss to the Saints.

EDGE Analysis

Making his return after a month-long absence, Clay was unable to make a significant impact as the passing attack struggled mightily as a whole. Clay had established a strong rapport with Tyrod Taylor prior to undergoing knee surgery which should begin to rekindle sooner rather than later. Another week removed from the injury, look for the big target to be further integrated into next week's game plan against the Chargers.

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

EDGE Analysis

Clay is back in the mix following a three-game absence after having practiced in a limited fashion all week. While it remains to be seen how close to 100 percent he is at this stage as he bounces back from a procedure to address a torn meniscus and MCL sprain, in his return, look for Clay to reclaim his starting role at tight end from Nick O'Leary. Despite having only played five games this season, Clay still leads the Bills with 258 receiving yards. He'll now look to re-establish his on-field rapport with QB Tyrod Taylor in a Buffalo passing offense that was recently bolstered by the acquisition of big-bodied wideout Kelvin Benjamin.

Clay (knee), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints, is considered likely to play, a source informed Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Clay has been sidelined for nearly a month following a procedure to address a torn meniscus and sprained MCL, missing the Bills' last three games as a result. While Clay may not quite be back to 100 percent Sunday, he was able to put turn in a full week of limited practices, which will likely be enough for the Bills to give him the green light to suit up. If that's the case, Clay would presumably take back his starting role at tight end from Nick O'Leary.

Clay, who's practiced on a limited basis all week, is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against New Orleans, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Coach Sean McDermott has hinted all week that Clay will be back this week following a three-game absence, so consider him on the better side of questionable. That said, it wouldn't be a surprise to see him on a more limited play count than usual.
