I'll make this short and sweet. These are the guys I don't expect to play this week in order from least likely to most likely to play:
Has been declared out for today's game after suffering an ankle injury last week. It'd be surprising if he ever plays for Buffalo again.
Reed did not make the trip suffering from an injured ankle as well.
He has been downgraded to out as well with a hamstring injury.
We're down to guesses and gut feelings now. The re-signing of Gibran Hamdan, Fitz's inability to practice at all this week, and the fact that the team has little to play for lead me to believe that Fitzpatrick will be the emergency QB at best. My guess is that is what he is designated.
Palmer was limited in practice all week with an ankle injury.
The guy has yo-yoed off and on Buffalo's roster and hasn't been active for one game. He's the most likely healthy scratch.
I really tried to find a way that he would be active today but with Drayton Florence sick all week, Palmer likely out, Hardy's lack of special teams work, Steve Johnson's slot reps and special teams work I don't know how Hardy will see the field. Even a guy like Chris Ellis plays special teams.
Other options are DE Chris Ellis and OT Jamon Meredith who were both inactive last week.
