Bills: Buffalo is in position to get healthier for its stretch run with linebacker­s Matt Milano and Tyrel Dodson designated to return to practice on Wednesday after spending time on injured reserve.

Milano, a starter, missed three games over four weeks with a partially torn pectoral muscle. Dodson, a primary backup, has been sidelined since hurting his hamstring in a 26-17 loss to Kansas City on Oct. 19.

The Bills now have three weeks to decide whether to activate Milano and Dodson or place them on season-ending IR.

Vikings: Wideout Adam Thielen is back from his one-week absence. Minnesota said it has activated Thielen from the reserve/ COVID-19 list. Coach Mike Zimmer told reporters that Thielen will be “ready to go” Sunday against the Jaguars.

Thielen missed Minnesota’s Week 12 win over Carolina. His sudden departure under NFL-NFLPA protocols followed his best outing of the season in a 31-28 loss to Dallas, in which Thielen caught eight passes for 123 yards and two touchdowns.

and were allowed to rejoin their teammates at practice Wednesday after Denver activated them from the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Their return means practice squad receiver Kendall Hinton won’t have to be the one taking the snaps at Kansas City (10-1) next weekend as he did in Denver’s 31-3 loss to New Orleans on Sunday.

Eagles: Philadelph­ia activated tight end Zach Ertz from injured reserve and wideout J. J. Arcega-Whiteside from the reserve/ COVID-19 list. They also placed offensive tackle Lane Johnson on IR. Ertz has been sidelined since Week 7 with an ankle injury.
