There were no major surprises in the Buffalo Bills’ inactive list for their week twelve game against the Kansas City Chiefs today. Three players were ruled out on Friday, and a fourth was listed as out on Saturday. The remaining three are the same players who have been declared healthy scratches multiple times this year. Here is the full list:
WR Kelvin Benjamin
The big target will miss the game due to a knee injury he suffered early in the first quarter last week against the Los Angeles Chargers. With Jordan Matthews set to return to the lineup, he’ll slide right into a starting role opposite Zay Jones. Deonte Thompson and Andre Holmes will see plenty of reps at receiver, as well.
LT Cordy Glenn
Buffalo’s “starting” left tackle will miss yet another contest with foot and ankle soreness related to offseason surgery. Dion Dawkins, who with today’s game will have started more games at left tackle (6) than Glenn has on the season (5), will slide right into the lineup.
RB/FB Mike Tolbert
LeSean McCoy’s primary backup for the first 9 games of the season will miss his second consecutive game due to a hamstring injury suffered in a blowout loss to the New York Jets. Travaris Cadet, who played well in Tolbert’s absence last week, will once again serve as Shady’s backup.
G John Miller
Vlad Ducasse’s backup has not been active since Buffalo’s week four victory over the Atlanta Falcons, whether he’s been healthy or not. Miller suffered an ankle injury two weeks ago in practice. Ryan Groy will once again serve as the reserve interior offensive lineman.
T Conor McDermott
Nothing to see here, as McDermott has not been active once as a member of the Buffalo Bills. Seantrel Henderson is the swing tackle.
CB Shareece Wright
The man tasked with starting in place of E.J. Gaines was injured has now been a healthy scratch for the last two weeks.
TE Logan Thomas
The highly-athletic but extremely raw third-string tight end has been inactive for two consecutive weeks. With Charles Clay returning, Thomas’s lack of blocking ability has most likely led to his demotion. Khari Lee will once again serve as the team’s third tight end.
Kansas City’s inactive list is headed by the newly-signed Darrelle Revis. The full list is as follows:
