When Nathan Peterman makes his first NFL start on Sunday, Cordy Glenn won’t be protecting his blindside. The Buffalo Bills’ starting left tackle will miss Sunday’s game against the Los Angeles Chargers due to a recurrence of his foot and ankle soreness that has dogged him all season. Rookie Dion Dawkins will once again line up in Glenn’s place.

Also receiving “out” designations for the game are halfback/fullback Mike Tolbert and guard John Miller. Tolbert has served as the sole backup to LeSean McCoy throughout the season, even replacing Shady on passing downs at times. Newcomer Travaris Cadet, signed on November 4, stands to be McCoy’s backup instead. Fullback Patrick DiMarco may see more reps in short-yardage situations, as well. Miller has been a healthy scratch for the last month and a half, so he’ll now be an injured scratch instead.

The Bills listed tight end Charles Clay (knee), defensive end Jerry Hughes (shin/calf), and wide receiver Jordan Matthews (knee) as questionable for Sunday. None of those three practiced in full once this week, and it sounds as if at least Hughes will be a game-time decision.

Returning to the lineup will be starting cornerback E.J. Gaines and rookie receiver Zay Jones. Both players logged full practices on Thursday and Friday, and neither will carry an injury designation this week. Gaines’s return to the lineup means that Shareece Wright can return to sub-package duty, and if Matthews is unable to play, Jones will fit right back into a receiving corps that includes Kelvin Benjamin, Deonte Thompson, and Andre Holmes on Sunday.
