Sanders hauled in his lone target for a 16-yard gain Sunday in the Bills' 42-36 overtime loss to the Chiefs in the divisional round.
EDGE Analysis
Even with quarterback Josh Allen dropping back 39 times on the day in a back-and-forth affair between two potent offenses, Sanders wasn't able to make much of an imprint on the box score. In fact, the 34-year-old was just about phased out of the game plan, as his 27-percent snap share on offense was his lowest mark of the season. The Bills filtered most of Sanders' snaps to Gabriel Davis, who broke through with eight receptions for 201 yards and four touchdowns to dim just about any quiet buzz he might have had as a middle- or late-round sleeper heading into 2022 fantasy drafts. Davis' landmark performance presumably cements him into a regular starting role alongside Stefon Diggs and slot specialist Cole Beasley next season, increasing the likelihood that Sanders will have to fnd work elsewhere in free agency this offseason. The soon-to-be 35-year-old recorded 45 receptions for 678 yards and five touchdowns across his 14 regular-season and two playoff games with Buffalo.

Sanders secured two of three targets for 36 yards and a touchdown during the Bills' 47-17 win over the Patriots in an AFC wild-card matchup Saturday night.
EDGE Analysis
The veteran speedster's 34-yard scoring grab just ahead of the midway point of the third quarter had special significance in addition to helping ensure the Bills didn't suffer a momentum loss in the second half; it also served as his first postseason touchdown in his 14th career playoff game with his fifth different team. Sanders didn't seem to display any limitations from the knee injury that caused him to miss the last two regular-season games, as he sped down the left sideline and gained plenty of separation on his touchdown reception. Sanders' veteran savvy could well play another important role in a divisional-round clash versus either the Chiefs or Bengals next weekend.

Sanders (knee) is listed as a full participant on the Bills' injury report Tuesday
EDGE Analysis
Sanders was expected to put in full participation at Tuesday's walkthrough and did just that, setting him up for a return to action Saturday against the Patriots. The veteran wideout missed the last two games of the regular season but figures to be a contributor in the postseason after finishing out the regular season with 42 grabs for 626 yards and four touchdowns over 14 games played.

Coach Sean McDermott said Sanders (knee) is expected to be a full participant at Tuesday's walkthrough, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
Since injuring his knee Week 14 in Tampa Bay, Sanders played in just one of the Bills' final four games of the campaign (Week 16 at New England). He hasn't even practiced since preparation for that contest, but back-to-back absences to close out the regular season may have been strategic to ensure he's healthy as possible for the playoffs. As it pertains to Tuesday, though, Sanders' activity level won't be confirmed until Buffalo releases its first practice report of the week.

Sanders (knee) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Jets.
EDGE Analysis
With Sanders, who was also inactive last weekend, still out, look for Gabriel Davis to continue to see added work in Week 18 alongside top wideout Stefon Diggs and slot man Cole Beasley. Sanders, who didn't practice this past week, will look to get a back on the field next week as the Bills begin their preparations for the team's playoff opener.

Sanders (knee) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Jets after not practicing this week.
EDGE Analysis
With Sanders trending toward inactive status for Sunday's 4:25 p.m. ET contest, look for Gabriel Davis to continue to see added work in Week 18 alongside top wideout Stefon Diggs and slot man Cole Beasley.

Coach Sean McDermott said Sanders (knee) won't participate at Friday's practice, Alaina Getzenberg of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Sanders sat out the Week 17 win over the Falcons due to the knee injury and has been unable to practice this week. The veteran wideout has yet to be officially ruled out but is trending toward another absence for the final game of the regular season.

Sanders (knee) didn't practice Thursday.
EDGE Analysis
With back-to-back absences Wednesday and Thursday, Sanders -- who missed the Bills' Week 17 win over the Falcons -- is looking pretty iffy ahead of Sunday's game against the Jets. If he's unable to return to action this weekend, the Bills' wideout corps once again would be led by Stefon Diggs, Gabriel Davis and Cole Beasley.

Sanders (knee) didn't practice Wednesday.
EDGE Analysis
Sanders missed two of the past three games and now appears uncertain for Sunday's matchup with the Jets. If he's out again, Gabriel Davis likely will occupy a three-down role.

Bills head coach Sean McDermott labeled Sanders (knee) as day-to-day Monday heading into this weekend's regular-season finale against the Jets, Sal Capaccio of WGR Sports Radio 550 Buffalo reports.
EDGE Analysis
Sanders was sidelined for the second time in three games in the Bills' 29-15 win over the Falcons in Week 17, after he suffered an apparent aggravation of the ankle injury that he initially sustained in a Week 14 loss to Tampa Bay. The wideout opened last week as a limited participant before downgrading to no activity Thursday and Friday, so he may need to get at least two limited sessions in during the upcoming week to have a shot at suiting up against the Jets. Buffalo has already punched its ticket to the postseason, but since a win over the Jets would secure the AFC East title and give the team a home game in the wild-card round, the Bills are incentivized to have Sanders play if he's close to 100 percent.
