Bills-Steelers inactives: Robert Woods out, but Manny Lawson will play

Timothy T. Ludwig-USA TODAY Spor

Buffalo will be without its most oft-used wideout in Week 10, but outside linebacker Manny Lawson will start.

As expected, the Buffalo Bills will be without rookie wide receiver Robert Woods when they take on the Pittsburgh Steelers this afternoon at Heinz Field.

Woods, who did not practice all week, is dealing with an ankle injury that he sustained in last week's loss to Kansas City. T.J. Graham and Marquise Goodwin will both likely see an uptick in playing time with Woods out of the lineup; the second-round pick out of USC has taken more live reps than any other Bills receiver this year.

The news is better for outside linebacker Manny Lawson, who was added to the injury report on Friday after missing practice to attend to a personal matter. Lawson made the trip west with his teammates and will start today.

Buffalo's six other inactive players are all healthy scratches: quarterback Jeff Tuel, running back Ronnie Wingo, guard Antoine McClain, linebacker Ty Powell, and cornerbacks Justin Rogers and Brandon Smith. Meanwhile, the team's newest player, fullback Evan Rodriguez, will make his Bills debut after joining the team on Monday.
