With Bills wide receiver Cole Beasley already out this week after testing positive for COVID-19, Buffalo has now lost another receiver for Sunday’s game due to the virus.

Buffalo placed wide receiver Gabriel Davis and right guard Cody Ford on the reserve / COVID-19 list, the team announced Friday.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Davis is unvaccinated, which means he’s out for 10 days and won’t play in this week’s important game against the Patriots.

Davis had caught a touchdown pass in each of Buffalo’s last three games, including two last week. The second-year receiver has made 29 catches for 470 yards with six touchdowns this year.

Plus, the Bills likely won’t have two coaches for this weekend’s game. Defensive line coach Eric Washington and special teams coach Heath Farwell have entered the league’s COVID-19 protocols.

According to several reporters, head coach Sean McDermott said one of the ways the team is trying to combat the spread of the virus within the facility is to train outdoors. The club also organized virtual meetings.

The Bills now have six players from their roster active on the COVID-19 reserve: Beasley, Davis, Ford, offensive tackle Dion Dawkins, guard Jon Feliciano and defensive end AJ Epenesa.
