Two Buffalo Bills defenders that missed a brutal Week 4 loss will return to the starting lineup this Sunday, as end Marcus Stroud and linebacker Andra Davis will resume their duties after a week off. Both players are listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Buffalo surrendered 274 rushing yards to thelast Sunday without Stroud and Davis, and while Buffalo's run defense wasn't much better with the two veterans in the lineup - they allowed 200 yards on the ground to New England in Week 3 - every little bit helps.
The Bills will, however, still be without starter Terrence McGee, who remains sidelined after minor knee surgery that's expected to cost him another game or two beyond this one. Along with Arthur Moats, who injured his elbow last week, the team will be without linebacker Keith Ellison and safety Bryan Scott, who have both seen a significant amount of work in nickel and dime packages. It's expected that Paul Posluszny and George Wilson will pick up some of the slack there.
Ashton Youboty is listed as questionable, as is tight end Shawn Nelson.
The Jaguars will be without starting linebacker Justin Durant, and will also more than likely be missing safety Sean Considine and backup running back Rashad Jennings. You know what that means: if you're lucky enough to see the game Sunday, you'll get lots of exposure to Maurice Jones-Drew.
