Practices fully, expected to play

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-22

Knox (back) practiced in full Friday and doesn't have an injury designation ahead of Sunday's Week 3 game against the Commanders.

Knox missed Wednesday and Thursday's practices, but it was evidently just precautionary. On nine targets through two games, Knox has six catches for 35 yards and one touchdown. He's a touchdown-dependent fantasy option in a tough draw against Washington's stout back end.

Returning to practice

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-22

Knox (back) is in line to practice Friday, Alaina Getzenberg of reports.

Knox didn't practice either Wednesday or Thursday, so his looming return to the field Friday offers hope that the tight end could suit up Sunday against the Commanders. The Bills' upcoming injury report will clarify both Knox's level of participation as well as whether he'll head into the weekend with a Week 3 injury designation.

Not practicing again

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-21

Knox (back) won't practice Thursday, Katherine Fitzgerald of The Buffalo News reports.

Knox also missed Wednesday's practice, so the tight end -- who is taking things "one day at a time" per coach coach Sean McDermott -- will probably need to work in some capacity Friday in order to have a chance to suit up Sunday against the Commanders. If Knox ends up sidelined this weekend, fellow TE Dalton Kincaid would be in line for added opportunities in Week 3.

Not practicing Wednesday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-20

Knox (back) won't practice Wednesday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Knox now has two more opportunities to practice ahead of Sunday's game against the Commanders, but if he's out or limited this weekend, fellow TE Dalton Kincaid would be in line for added Week 3 opportunities. Through two contests to begin the 2023 season, Knox has caught six passes on nine targets for 35 yards and a TD.

Finds end zone

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-17

Knox recorded three receptions on five targets for 10 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 38-10 win over the Raiders.

Knox saw a similar amount of opportunity as compared to Dalton Kincaid, though he was far less productive. The exception was that Knox found the end zone from two yards away early in the second quarter after shaking free from the attention of the Las Vegas secondary. Overall, his role seems to be strictly in the short areas of the field, so much of his fantasy production will have to come from reaching the end zone.

Similar stat line to Kincaid

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-11

Knox caught three of four targets for 25 yards in Monday's 22-16 overtime loss to the Jets.

Knox had one fewer yard on the same number of targets as rookie first-round pick Dalton Kincaid. Both tight ends figure to play prominent roles in Buffalo's passing game, which was unusually quiet in the season opener against the stingy Jets defense. Knox has 15 touchdown catches over the past two seasons, and the 2019 third-round draft pick should remain a key contributor in the red zone given his established chemistry with quarterback Josh Allen, coupled with Knox's superior blocking ability compared to Kincaid.

Not on injury report

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-07

Knox (finger) isn't on the Bills' Week 1 injury report.

Safety Micah Hyde (back), who was limited Thursday, is the only Buffalo player listed on the team's initial practice/injury report of the season. Now that Knox is past the finger injury that he dealt with last month, the tight end is in line to work in tandem with first-round rookie Dalton Kincaid. While the arrival of Kincaid figures to impact Knox's volume as the campaign progresses, both players should still have an opportunity to produce in the Bills' Josh Allen-helmed passing offense, which also features WRs Stefon Diggs and Gabe Davis.

Back at practice Tuesday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-22

Knox (finger) returned to practice Tuesday, Alaina Getzenberg of reports.

Knox played four snaps in the preseason opener but missed last weekend's second exhibition. He should be on track for the Week 1 opener against the Jets on Monday, Sept. 11. Knox's role remains secure as the top inline tight end, but the arrival of first-round rookie Dalton Kincaid clouds Knox's potential target share as the fourth or fifth option in the pecking order on offense.

Expected to practice Sunday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-20

Bills coach Sean McDermott said that Knox (finger) is expected to participate in the team's walkthrough Sunday, Ryan O'Halloran of The Buffalo News reports.

Knox did not suit up for Saturday's 27-15 preseason loss to the Steelers due to an injury to one of his pinkie fingers. The 26-year-old is currently considered day-to-day with this issue, and it's unclear if he'd be ready to participate in a full practice yet. The Bills' preseason finale will arrive this coming Saturday against the Bears, and Knox's potential absence could leave more opportunities for rookie tight end Dalton Kincaid, who just caught three passes for 45 yards against Pittsburgh.
