Buffalo Bills rule out Cole Beasley

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- The Buffalo Bills ruled out wide receiver Cole Beasley for their game Sunday against the Miami Dolphins, a result of the knee injury he suffered against the New England Patriots in Week 16.

Beasley, the team's second-leading receiver, left Buffalo's win over New England late in the fourth quarter and did not return. Coach Sean McDermott called Beasley "week-to-week." The Bills are set to host their first playoff game in 25 years next weekend.

In his second year with the Bills, Beasley has set career highs with 967 yards and 82 catches on 107 targets. Losing him for an extended amount of time would leave Buffalo without its top slot receiver, but the Bills did activate wide receiver John Brown from the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday.

The Houston Chronicle first reported that Buffalo is set to sign wide receiver Kenny Stills once he clears COVID-19 protocols, but McDermott called the Bills' interest in Stills unrelated to Beasley's injury.
