Bills vs. Cowboys: Buffalo, Dallas Replacing Injured Starters

The Buffalo Bills and the Dallas Cowboys will square off in Week 10 action on Sunday afternoon at Cowboys Stadium. Both teams will be without three starters; here's how each team will replace those players for this week's big game.

Bills OT Demetrius Bell (shoulder): With rookie backup Chris Hairston still ailing with an ankle injury, the Bills will kick left guard Andy Levitre out to left tackle for a third straight game. Chad Rinehart will take Levitre's left guard spot.

Bills OLB Chris Kelsay (calf): Danny Batten will replace Kelsay in the starting lineup, but with no stand-outs at this position, the Bills will use a rotation. Arthur Moats, Spencer Johnson and even Antonio Coleman will all get playing time.

Bills K Rian Lindell (shoulder): The Bills signed street free agent Dave Rayner this week to kick in place of Lindell, who will reportedly miss 4-6 weeks.

After the jump, see how Dallas will replace its three injured starters.

Cowboys RB Felix Jones (ankle): Jones may end up being replaced as a starter - even when he's healthy - by rookie DeMarco Murray, who has been torching defenses of late.

Cowboys WR Miles Austin (hamstring): Dez Bryant becomes the Cowboys' top threat at wide receiver, and Laurent Robinson will replace Austin in the starting lineup. Jesse Holley will likely see time in three-receiver sets.

Cowboys CB Mike Jenkins (hamstring): The Cowboys will slide veteran Orlando Scandrick into the starting lineup to replace Jenkins, with Alan Ball handling nickel duties. The team also has veteran Frank Walker in reserve.

Which team will be without more crucial players on Sunday, Bills fans?
