Bills-Browns Injury Report
Which team is healthier? Bills
Unless something changes between now and Friday, the Bills are trending toward having everyone healthy on Sunday.
Edge defender Olivier Vernon (knee) is the main person of interest on the Browns; he hasn’t practiced yet this week. His potential absence would be good news for Josh Allen since Vernon leads the team in quarterback hurries and hits, and is second on the team in pressures. — Justin Bailey

The Bills are thought to have a good defense, but a soft schedule has masked their issues with defending the run. Buffalo is currently fielding the league’s 30th-ranked run defense in DVOA (per Football Outsiders) and allowing 4.57 yards per carry to backs (24th).
