Bills vs. Patriots Inactives: No Major Surprises For Buffalo

Here are the Buffalo Bills' inactive players for today's game against the New England Patriots. You may notice that the list doesn't include C.J. Spiller's name.

Matt Warren is Associate Director of NFL coverage for SB Nation and previously covered the Bills for Buffalo Rumblings for more than a decade.

It was reported earlier today that Fred Jackson would indeed be active despite being on the injury report as questionable. Now that the official list has been released, we now also know that his running mate C.J. Spiller is set to dress for today's game, as well.

The Bills are keeping Johnny White active and will have four running backs available. That could indicate that Spiller's role will be minimal but Adam Schefter tweeted that the Bills are expected to evenly distribute carries between the two top backs. Spiller missed practice on Wednesday and was limited on Thursday and Friday.

Here's the full list of inactives; quarterback Tarvaris Jackson, safety Delano Howell, wide receiver Ruvell Martin, tackle Sam Young, guard Colin Brown, defensive end Kyle Moore and linebacker Kirk Morrison.

Of that list, only Martin is injured as he's dealing with a high ankle sprain. The remaining names are healthy scratches.
