Sean McDermott: Cole Beasley still week-to-week

NFL: DEC 28 Bills at Patriots

Wide receiver Cole Beasley suffered a knee injury late in Buffalo’s Week 16 victory over the Patriots. He wasn’t able to play in Week 17, and his status for Saturday’s wild-card matchup against the Colts is in question, too.

McDermott said in his Monday press conference that Beasley is still considered week-to-week and there’s no real update on his status.

Beasley caught 82 passes for 967 yards with four touchdowns in 2020, setting career highs in the first two categories.

If Beasley continues to be sidelined, McDermott said, via Matt Parrino of Syracuse.com, that wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie is “very capable” of playing slot receiver. McKenzie had 30 receptions for 282 yards with five touchdowns this season, scoring two of them in Sunday’s game. He also returned a punt 84 yards for a TD in the blowout win over Miami.

  1. Totally possible. JC Jackson upset Stefon Diggs last week. How’d that turn out?

  2. Come on beeez they need you and this could be a one in a lifetime shot for you to show dallas who’s at the game and who’s not.

  3. We’ll rest Beasley this week due to the opposition being weak. Good job Colts, you barely beat the Jags to get in! No wonder no one thinks you’re going to beat the hottest team in the league.

  4. Hope the bills can slow down Taylor. I think the offense will score, not as easily as the last couple games, but they’ll be effective enough to win. I see a score of 26-16 Buffalo

  5. The Bills have peaked at the right time. The Bills will score a record number of points in the post season. Win or lose the SB, they will be there with 125 points or so in 4 games.

  6. Week to week? I have absolutely no faith that my beloved bills are going to squeak past the colts so what are we holding beasley back for? We need everyone to give it their all while we try to circle the wagons once again.

    Seriously? Ever have a sprained knee and attempt to cut on it? Like Beasley?
    I’ll trust our coaches to put the players who are healthy and solid enough to give the Bills the best chance to win..

    I smell sarcasm!

  9. I Billieve… Beene didnt get executive of the year by putting in joke bodies as backups.
    The Bills know what they are doing. If, in a weird scenario, we lose to the Colts its because they outplayed us. Not because Beasley missed the game.
    GO BILLS!

  10. If the Bills lose to Indy it won’t be because they’re missing Beasley. Allen and the defense will both need to have an off day, which is possible, but isn’t going to be averted by having Beasley in the lineup. Get him healthy. I’d rather have him healthy for a potential round 2 matchup against the Titans, Baltimore, or Pittsburgh than have him get injured on his second catch of the day against the Colts and be out the rest of the way.
