Bates was injured with just over three minutes to play in Sunday's 29-15 win over the Atlanta Falcons. He stayed down on the field for several minutes before walking to the sidelines and medical tent on his own power. He never returned to the game, but the Bills only ran two more plays before kneeling down three times to run out the clock.

Bates, normally a backup lineman, started at guard on Sunday for the second week in a row. Offensive coordinator Brian Daboll said he earned the spot due to his performance the previous week against the New England Patriots.

McDermott also said that wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders, who missed Sunday's game with a knee injury, is also considered day-to-day.

The Bills head coach also confirmed that the team had no additions to the Reserve/COVID-19list on Monday.
