Hauschka, who played through a hip injury for part of the 2018 season, has been healthy while participating in the team's offseason conditioning program and spring practices, Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News reports.

EDGE Analysis

The only competition for Hausch Money in camp will be undrafted free agent Chase McLaughlin, so the job will belong to the veteran barring something crazy happening. Hauschka only posted 91 points last season, the lowest of his career for any full campaign. The Buffalo offense should be improved after all kinds of money was spent this offseason, though we'll remind you this is still a defensive-oriented team that plays many of its games in windy or otherwise bad weather.

Hauschka made two of his three field-goal attempts in Sunday's loss to New England.

EDGE Analysis

Hauschka has been dealing with a hip injury the past couple weeks but has played through the issue. He's missed a couple kicks between 40 and 49 yards the past three weeks after being perfect from that range for a majority of the season. He's hitting a career-low 81 percent on field goals this season (22-for-27), which could in part be due to his hip injury. He'll look to finish the year strong against the Dolphins in Week 17.

Hauschka (hip) practiced fully for the second straight day Friday and is not listed on the injury report for Sunday's game at New England.

EDGE Analysis

The Bills never seemed worried about their kicker being ready to go, especially after he worked through the injury in last week's win over the Lions. That said, there are plenty of better options than a guy kicking for a heavy underdog in December weather against a team that typically dominates home games.

Hauschka, who was limited Wednesday with a lingering hip injury, was back to a full practice Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Coach Sean McDermott has said all along he trusts his kicker will be out there for Week 16, and Thursday's full practice pretty much seals that up. The bigger problem for fantasy owners is the matchup, a road game at New England, a team that's had the Bills' number as well as most other December visitors, for years.

Hauschka (hip) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

EDGE Analysis

Hauschka is nursing a hip injury of undisclosed severity, which he played through during last Sunday's win over the Lions. The veteran kicker does not yet appear to be in danger of missing Sunday's divisional tilt against the Patriots, but his participation in practice will be worth monitoring as the week progresses.

Hauschka didn't attempt a field goal, though he did convert both PATs in Sunday's 14-13 win over the Lions.

EDGE Analysis

Hauschka entered Sunday's game dealing with a hip issue, but it didn't seem to bother him on his PAT attempts. The veteran kicker is 20-for-24 on field goals this season, and he'll look to finish strong against the Patriots and Dolphins in Weeks 16 and 17.

Hauschka (hip) is active Sunday against Detroit.

EDGE Analysis

Despite missing significant practice time this week due to a right hip injury, the Bills never signed a backup option for Hauschka, suggesting his Week 15 status was relatively safe. Nonetheless, there are likely higher-quality kicking options available for the fantasy postseason.

Hauschka (right hip) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions after logging a limited practice Friday.

EDGE Analysis

That said, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site noted earlier Friday that Hauschka should be fine for Sunday's game, a notion supported by the fact that he remains the only kicker on Buffalo's roster as of Friday.

Hauschka (back) will get "re-acclimated" at Friday's practice, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site, and should be fine for Sunday's game against the Lions.

EDGE Analysis

Hauschka isn't a great kicking option as he ranks just 21st in standard scoring, but at least the Buffalo offense has finally started moving the ball better and the weather isn't supposed to be so December lousy.

Hauschka (back) did not kick in practice Thursday for the second straight day, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports. "We're still waiting," coach Sean McDermott said following the session.

EDGE Analysis

Hauschka took a shot as both teams were chasing after a blocked field goal during Sunday's loss to the Jets, a hit the Bills have been complaining about all week. McDermott -- who hasn't brought in another placekicker yet -- still feels his veteran will be able to go Sunday against the Lions, though some form of kicking it around Friday would go a long way toward that belief.
