When the Buffalo Bills kick off against the Houston Texans at 1 PM Eastern, they will do so at essentially full health. Even though a few players were limited in practice early in the week, not one Buffalo Bills player carried an injury designation coming into today’s game.

All of Buffalo’s inactive players are healthy scratches today, which is great for the team (although it might not be so good for the inactive players). Here are the Bills’ inactives for Sunday.

QB Derek Anderson

As expected, Buffalo’s newest quarterback is a healthy scratch in his first week with the team. Ian Rapoport reported earlier this morning that Anderson is not expected to play at all this year, as the Bills view him strictly as a mentor for Josh Allen and Nathan Peterman. Barring injury, Anderson will probably be a healthy scratch for the entire season.

OT Conor McDermott

OT Ike Boettger

G Wyatt Teller

The rookies continue their redshirt year, as both Boettger and Teller have been healthy scratches every week thus far. McDermott was active a few times earlier in the year, but the team went with Jeremiah Sirles last week and will do so again this week.

CB Ryan Lewis

The semi-surprise inactive here is Lewis, who started the last three games but was benched midway through last week’s victory over the Tennessee Titans. After allowing some chunk plays early, he was replaced by Phillip Gaines, who is a much better tackler than Lewis.

RB Marcus Murphy

Buffalo rolls with three running backs again, as Chris Ivory’s recent success has allowed him to leapfrog Murphy in the running back rotation.

LB Julian Stanford

One of Buffalo’s veteran free agent signings, Stanford is a scratch this week. The special teamer is healthy, but Ramon Humber and Deon Lacey are the active special teams/backup linebackers.

Here are Houston’s inactives. Quarterback Deshaun Watson, who practiced only in a limited fashion all week due to a chest injury, is active and will start the game.
