Just one day after his first full practice in a Buffalo Bills uniform, tight end Tyler Kroft “banged his other ankle,” according to head coach Sean McDermott.

Kroft has yet to play for the team after signing as a free agent in March. He broke his foot on the first day of OTAs and has been out ever since. McDermott couldn’t provide an update when he told the media after practice, saying he was about to get more information. Kroft had been on track to make his Bills debut against his former team when they host the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday at New Era Field.

Also, running back Devin Singletary didn’t practice once again. McDermott said he’d get another report Thursday night and again Friday morning on the rookie. He is still recovering from a hamstring injury that forced him to leave last Sunday’s game against the New York Giants early. 

Wide receiver/returner Andre Roberts “looked pretty good,” according to McDermott, after his second day practicing following missing two weeks with a quad injury.

Cornerback Taron Johnson did not practice.He is nursing a hamstring injury.

Tre’Davious White was, once again, in a red non-contact jersey as he deals with a neck issue, but McDermott said he’s “moving in the right direction” as far as his chances of playing on Sunday, adding that the cornerback “did well” Thursday and that the team is just trying to be smart while dealing with the issue.

The Bills opened the season with two wins on the road for the first time in franchise history, and will look to go 3-0 for the first time since 2011.
