Nigel Bradham: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Bradham (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots after practicing in a limited fashion all week, ESPN.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

We'll track Bradham's status in advance of Sunday's 1:00 ET kickoff, but wgr550.com suggests that the linebacker, who sat out last week's contest, is likely to be a game-time decision Sunday. If Bradham is out this week, or limited, Preston Brown would once again be in line for an expanded role.
Bradham, who missed Week 5 with a knee injury, was able to return to practice Wednesday, according to ESPN's Mike Rodak.

Bradham (suspension) saw looks with the Bills' first-team nickel unit in Sunday's preseason loss to the Giants, the Buffalo News reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Bradham had four tackles - one for a loss. While he's suspended for Week 1 against the Bears due to a 2013 incident, he's slated to start at weakside linebacker this season, and the fact that he's also seeing nickel looks bodes well for his IDP value.

2013

Although he was only a part-time player as a fourth-round pick rookie in 2012, the Bills are prepared to give Bradham a full plate of responsibilities in 2013. The former Florida State star is very athletic and, no matter whether the Bills run a 4-3 or 3-4 this year, Bradham has the length and athleticism to stay on the field through all formations. With Kelvin Sheppard and Nick Barnett run out of town, it's difficult to see how Bradham could possibly fall short of three-down duties this year. He finished his rookie year with only 47 stops, but he will see his defensive snap count at least double this year, making anything short of triple digits a disappointment.

2012

Bradham is an extremely athletic linebacker who can give Buffalo an explosive blitz threat right away in certain packages. While the Bills think they might have gotten a steal in the fourth round of 2012, he has almost no chance of starting with a few more experienced linebackers ahead of him. He'll need to improve his block-shedding ability, and for now it looks like he'll also have to prove himself on special teams. But his athleticism is high and he excelled in a major conference, so he's worth keeping an eye on.
