Buffalo Bills inactives, Week 8: Trent Murphy is out

The Bills are down a pass rusher tonight against the New England Patriots

NFL: Cincinnati Bengals at Buffalo Bills Timothy T. Ludwig-USA TODAY Sports

The Buffalo Bills are down some starters heading into tonight’s matchup with the New England Patriots on Monday Night Football. With three players ruled out prior to tonight’s official notification, much of the inactive list was already known.

Here are the non-participants in tonight’s contest.

QB Josh Allen

The Bills will once again start veteran Derek Anderson in place of the rookie, who is still recovering from an elbow injury suffered against the Houston Texans.

RB Taiwan Jones

The Bills’ special teams captain will miss another game with a neck injury. Marcus Murphy is active in his place. Also able to play is LeSean McCoy, who cleared concussion protocol in time for the game.

OT Ike Boettger

OT Conor McDermott

OG Wyatt Teller

Nothing to see here, as the same crew that has been inactive for the last few weeks will be inactive again.

DE Trent Murphy

A knee injury suffered against the Indianapolis Colts will keep Murphy out of tonight’s game. Shaq Lawson will start in his place.

CB Dontae Johnson

After suiting up and playing last weekend, Johnson is back to a healthy scratch. Former Patriot Ryan Lewis is active against his old squad.
