Bills vs. Patriots inactives: EJ Manuel, Stevie Johnson sit out

Jim Rogash

EJ Manuel will be in street clothes for the Bills' season finale today, with Thad Lewis replacing him in the starting lineup and Jeff Tuel serving as the backup.

The Buffalo Bills will be without three starters when they take on the New England Patriots later this afternoon.

Aaron Williams was placed on Injured Reserve earlier this week, so he will not need to be placed on today's inactive list. The man that replaced him on the active roster, receiver Cordell Roberson, will not be active for the contest.

The other two starters down, of course, are quarterback EJ Manuel and wide receiver Stevie Johnson. Johnson has missed the last two games following the death of his mother, while Manuel was ruled out on Friday with a knee sprain. Robert Woods and T.J. Graham will start at receiver, with Thad Lewis in the lineup at quarterback and Jeff Tuel his backup.

Buffalo's remaining inactive players: running back Ronnie Wingo, guards Mark Asper and Antoine McClain, and defensive back Brandon Smith. The one notable active player at the back end of the roster is tight end Tony Moeaki, who also played last week but did not log any snaps offensively.
