During the second half of their game against the Houston Texans, Buffalo Bills guard Vladimir Ducasse left with a knee injury. Ducasse has been the starter all season at left guard, playing almost 100 percent of snaps for the team. Ducasse was replaced by Ryan Groy, who began the season as the starting center but was benched for Russell Bodine.
Groy was the primary relief lineman available today, with tackle Jeremiah Sirles also on hand. Rookie Wyatt Teller has practiced at left guard, and rookie Ike Boettger is another guard on the roster, but both players were inactive for the Texans game.
