    Epenesa (ankle) was a full participant in practice Monday.

  • Bills' A.J. Epenesa: Inactive versus Lions

    Epenesa (ankle) is inactive for Thursday's contest against the Lions.

    Epenesa was listed as doubtful for Thanksgiving Day, so it doesn't come as much of a surprise to now see him officially inactive. The 2020 second-round pick suffered an ankle injury Week 11 against the Browns, and his next chance to return will come Dec. 1 on Thursday Night Football against New England.

  • Bills' A.J. Epenesa: Unlikely to play in Week 12

    Epenesa (ankle) is considered doubtful to play Thursday versus the Lions, Alaina Getzenberg of reports.

    Epenesa suffered an ankle injury in Week 11 against the Browns and was unable to return to the contest. It appears like the injury is still bothering him and he'll likely be forced to take a seat for Thursday's Thanksgiving Day matchup.

  • Bills' A.J. Epenesa: Won't return Sunday

    Epenesa (ankle) was downgraded to out for the remainder of Sunday's contest against Cleveland.

    While the nature of this injury is still unclear, it appears significant enough to keep Epenesa sidelined for the rest of the Bills' Week 11 contest. The 24-year-old will now have a short four-day turnaround before the team's next outing against the Lions on Thanksgiving Day.

  • Bills' A.J. Epenesa: Exits versus Cleveland

    Epenesa is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Browns with an ankle injury.

    Epenesa did not record a defensive statistic before exiting at some point during the first half against Cleveland. The 2020 second-round pick played a season-high 61 percent of the Bills' defensive snaps last week versus the Vikings, as starting defensive end Greg Rousseau was sidelined with an ankle injury. With Rousseau once again ruled inactive Week 11, Buffalo's defensive line will be left short-handed against the Browns' run-heavy offense for the time being.
