Buffalo Bills Wide Receiver Isaiah McKenzie Could Be Ready for Season Opener

Buffalo Bills are looking healthy heading into the team's monumental season opener against the Los Angeles Rams. According to the Athletic's Bills beat reporter Joe Buscaglia, Bills head coach Sean McDermott declared wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie should be ready to go for Thursday night:

McKenzie suffered a lower-body injury during an August 27th practice but has recently returned to the field. The update follows similarly positive news on safety Jordan Poyer, who had been missing time with a hyperextended elbow.

Initially taken 172nd overall by the Denver Broncos in the 2017 NFL Draft, McKenzie has spent his last four seasons with the Bills, tallying 893 receiving yards and seven touchdowns while pitching in another 171 yards on 37 rushing attempts. He has also proven valuable on special teams returning kicks and punts. Should he be healthy enough to play, he'll slot in behind Stefon Diggs and Gabriel Davis, likely as the team's third wide receiver.

The Buffalo Bills face off against the Los Angeles Rams this Thursday night on NBC's NFL Kickoff.
