The Cleveland Browns head to New York to take on the Buffalo Bills in Week 11 of the 2022 NFL season. The Browns season is on the brink of failure with only a small chance of making the playoffs this year. The Bills are coming off of two straight losses after starting the year as one of the best teams in the NFL.
The city of Buffalo is also bracing for two feet or more of snow late in the week and into the weekend.
Wednesday came news that the Bills have a rash of players that have come down with some kind of illness. Despite their practice squad players, Buffalo had to significantly limit their practice today due to the lack of healthy players:

With the game being at home on Sunday, Buffalo’s players won’t have to worry about travel limitations and have extra time to get healthy before the game. The team will likely monitor the rest of the players closely as illnesses can easily spread in locker rooms.
Unlike previous COVID regulations, players will only be limited if they are too ill to play.
We will keep you up to date on the Bills practices this week and how the illness is impacting the team.
