    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay did not participate in practice Monday, Aug. 14, because he received the day off.

    Huddle Up: Clay likely will receive practices off during the season because of his back but will be able to play as long as he does not suffer a setback. He should have a solid role in the passing game this season but should only be considered a No. 2 fantasy tight end.

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay did not participate in practice Thursday, Aug. 3, because he received the day off, according to head coach Sean McDermott.

    Huddle Up: The Bills are concerned about Clay's knee, so he probably will receive some practices off during camp as well as the regular season. He has posted some decent numbers over the last few seasons but is a risky fantasy option because of his knee. He probably should be considered a No. 2 tight end in most leagues.

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) did not participate in practice Sunday, July 30, because he was given the day off. Clay had been a full participant in the first three practices of training camp.

    Huddle Up: Clay probably will receive some days off during camp since the team is concerned about his knee. He has recorded at least 500 yards in each of his last four seasons but has not played 16 games in a season since 2013. He will have a role in the Bills passing game, but owners probably should consider him a No. 2 tight end in most leagues.

  • Posted: 5/25/2017 10:37am ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay's (knee) ailing knee continues to be an issue. Head coach Sean McDermott said the knee is a concern to the Bills and something they'll keep an eye on going forward. Clay has participated in drills, but the Bills are taking a cautious approach with his workload.

    Huddle Up: Clay has 'only' missed four games in his two seasons with the Bills, but his production has not been up to par. He has not finished as a TE1 since 2013 with the Miami Dolphins and remains a TE2 heading into 2017.

  • Posted: 12/29/2016 9:18am ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) is participating in practice Thursday, Dec. 29.

  • Posted: 12/22/2016 5:14pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) remained a limited participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 22.

  • Posted: 12/8/2016 5:32pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) remained a limited participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 8.

    Huddle Up: Clay has been even less productive than usual lately, and he doesn't needing to be starting in any format.

  • Posted: 12/3/2016 10:49am ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) is listed as questionable but will not travel to face the Oakland Raiders in Week 13. Clay has chosen to stay behind to attend the birth of his child.

    Huddle Up: Clay has battled a lingering knee injury for months, robbing him of upside even when facing good matchups. Gerald Christian has been activated to fill in for Clay, but he has no value in Week 13. Look for more LeSean McCoy in the check-down game; Marquise Goodwin and Sammy Watkins should consume the deep-threat duties.

  • Posted: 11/12/2016 5:41pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay has been used in a variety of blocking combinations since Anthony Lynn became the offensive coordinator, but he is still looking for his first touchdown this season.

    Huddle Up: Clay continues to disappoint, and he shows no signs of breaking out. He has three catches or less in three straight games, and he has just 44 yards combined in that span. Look elsewhere for tight end help in Week 11.

  • Posted: 11/7/2016 4:30pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) is officially active for the team's Week 9 game.

    Huddle Up: Clay has been able to play despite the injury and has been a pretty consistent performer this season. He could be considered a low-end No. 1 tight end this week even though he is facing the Seattle Seahawks defense.

  • Posted: 11/5/2016 12:15pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) was limited during practice Saturday, Nov. 5, and is listed as questionable for Week 9.

  • Posted: 11/4/2016 5:36pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 4.

    Huddle Up: Clay has been on the injury report for the last several weeks but has not missed a game. He has been targeted at least five times in each of the last five games but still has not been able to reach the end zone this season. Clay may be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues but is not a must-start option.

  • Posted: 11/3/2016 7:00pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) was limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 3.

    Huddle Up: Clay is likely to play through injury as he has most of the year. The matchup isn't terrible, but Seattle has little else to focus on with all of these injuries, so avoiding Clay is advised.

  • Posted: 10/30/2016 9:06am ET

  • Posted: 10/23/2016 4:41pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay posted just two receptions for 29 yards in the Week 7 game against the Miami Dolphins, his former team. He was targeted five times.

    Huddle Up: Clay is a borderline low-end TE1 in fantasy leagues of 14 or more teams. He should see more looks with the wide receiver corps banged up.

  • Posted: 10/23/2016 8:14am ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (ankle) will play in Week 7's game against the Miami Dolphins, according to a source.

  • Posted: 10/20/2016 3:38pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (ankle) was limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 20.

    Huddle Up: Clay actually isn't too shabby of a start this week, assuming he's able to go. Sammy Watkins is already out, LeSean McCoy won't be playing and Robert Woods looks pretty iffy. Clay is a fringe TE1 as he should see plenty of targets.

  • Posted: 10/19/2016 4:01pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 19.

    Huddle Up: Clay has been receiving Wednesdays off for most of the season, so this should not be a surprise. He likely will be able to play in Week 7 and could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues because he has been consistent over the last few weeks.

  • Posted: 10/9/2016 10:49pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) posted five receptions for 73 yards in the Week 5 game against the Los Angeles Rams on his five targets.

    Huddle Up: Clay did not show any ill-effects of the knee injury which had him listed as questionable, and in fact he had his best offensive output of the season. He has 10 grabs for 120 yards on 12 targets over the past two games. If he continues to see that kind of attention in the passing game he might be worth using as a low-end TE1 in seasonal fantasy formats again. Remember, he is just two weeks removed from going without a catch against the Arizona Cardinals.

  • Posted: 10/9/2016 12:27pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) is officially active for the team's Week 5 game.

  • Posted: 10/8/2016 5:34pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay said he wants the ball on every play just like any receiver, but he prides himself on his blocking and understands that coverages dictate where the ball goes.

    Huddle Up: Clay has the physical tools to be a productive weapon in the passing game, but hasn't been able to carve out a role in Buffalo. He shouldn't be considered more than a bye week fill-in.

  • Posted: 10/7/2016 2:06pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 7, and is listed as questionable for Week 5.

  • Posted: 10/6/2016 8:20pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) returned to practice on a limited basis Thursday, Oct. 6.

  • Posted: 10/2/2016 9:11am ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) is officially active for the team's Week 4 game.

    Huddle Up: Clay is expected to have a bigger role in the passing game with Sammy Watkins out at least eight weeks. He has posted only 67 yards in three games this season and should be considered a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 10/2/2016 8:12am ET

  • Posted: 9/29/2016 3:38pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) participated fully in practice Thursday, Sept. 29.

    Huddle Up: Clay has been underwhelming in his first year and three games with the Bills. Even with Sammy Watkins not looking promising to play this week, Clay is not a viable starting candidate at tight end. The only Bills that should be started if Watkins sits this week are LeSean McCoy and Tyrod Taylor, and maybe Robert Woods as a sleeper.

  • Posted: 9/29/2016 9:17am ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) is participating in practice Thursday, Sept. 22.
