Bills vs. Dolphins Inactives, NFL Week 16: Buffalo's Scratches

The Buffalo Bills are a little over an hour away from kickoff against the Miami Dolphins, and their seven game day scratches have been announced.

Wide receiver Marcus Easley (hamstring), defensive end Mark Anderson (knee) and linebacker Chris White (hamstring, hand) are all inactive due to their respective injuries; in fact, all three were ruled out on Friday. Easley will be replaced as a deep special teams player by Chris Hogan, and White's vital roles on special teams will be covered by reserve linebackers Kirk Morrison and Greg Lloyd.

This week's four healthy scratches: quarterback Tarvaris Jackson, offensive linemen Chris Scott and Keith Williams, and defensive tackle Jay Ross. For those fans that can't seem to stop obsessing about the third-string quarterback: no, Jackson has not yet been active for a game this season. Unless something happens to Ryan Fitzpatrick this afternoon that prevents him from playing in the regular season finale next week, Jackson is likely to hit unrestricted free agency in March without ever having donned a Bills uniform in a non-exhibition game.
