Patrick DiMarco: Active Sunday

DiMarco (concussion) is active for Sunday's game against Tennessee.

Analysis: DiMarco's status comes as little surprise after he cleared the concussion protocol Saturday. The fullback has seen limited offensive snaps the past few weeks and will likely see a similar role against the Titans.

Patrick DiMarco: Likely to play Sunday

DiMarco cleared concussion protocol and is expected to play Sunday.

Analysis: The Bills fullback is thus expected to his fifth consecutive start, and will face a difficult Titans defense that has allowed just 415 rushing yards through four games.

Patrick DiMarco: Question mark for Week 5

DiMarco (concussion) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Tennessee after practicing Friday on a full basis.

Analysis: DiMarco is the team's only fullback, so we'll have to assume he'll be in the lineup against the Titans if he receives full clearance ahead of the contest.

Patrick DiMarco: Progressing in recovery

DiMarco (concussion) is participating in Thursday's practice while wearing a red non-contact jersey, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Analysis: DiMarco has progressed to participating in non-contact football activities, indicating that he's nearing the final step of the league's concussion protocol. It remains to be seen whether DiMarco will receive medical clearance from an independent neurologist in time for Sunday's tilt against the Titans, but at the very least he isn't likely to be sidelined for long. The fullback plays a key blocking role in Buffalo's offense.

Patrick DiMarco: Battling concussion

DiMarco is in the league's concussion protocol, Matthew Fairburn of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: DiMarco's in danger of missing Sunday's game versus the Titans. His absence wouldn't directly affect the fantasy realm, although he's useful in opening up holes for Frank Gore and Devin Singletary (hamstring) and pass-blocking. The latter could have a major impact on Matt Barkley if Josh Allen (concussion) can't go.

Patrick DiMarco: Practices in full Thursday

DiMarco (ankle) was a full participant in Thursday's practice session.

Analysis: DiMarco's full practice likely means he's set to play in Sunday's game against New England. The veteran full back has been targeted in the passing game just four times this season, hauling in three catches for 62 yards while carrying the ball only once for nine yards. He'll figure to see his usual role as a blocking option for the Bills in Week 16.

Patrick DiMarco: Limited Wednesday

DiMarco was limited during Wednesday's practice due to an ankle injury.

Analysis: DiMarco briefly became a surprise option in the rushing attack Sunday against the Lions, as the Bills were down all four running backs before Keith Ford was able to make a quick return following his minor scare. The veteran DiMarco did see his first carry -- a nice nine-yard power run -- but that may be it for him offensively this season. In seven NFL campaigns, that's only the fourth time he's toted the rock.
