On Saturday, the Buffalo Bills announced that quarterback Josh Allen, fullback Patrick DiMarco, and safety Dean Marlowe would be ready for today’s game against the Tennessee Titans. That led to a huge sigh of relief from most fans, especially regarding Allen’s status.
While that news was good, the Bills still had to determine what to do with rookie running back Devin Singletary. Reported to be a game-time decision, the Bills have decided to sit Singletary this week.
Here are Buffalo’s inactives for the week.
RB Devin Singletary
Buffalo decided to play it safe with the young runner and leave him inactive today. While he is close to returning after suffering a hamstring injury in Buffalo’s Week 2 victory over the New York Giants, we’ll have to wait until after the bye to see Singletary again. Frank Gore and T.J. Yeldon will continue as the Bills’ two top backfield options.
WR Robert Foster
The speedster is nursing a groin injury, and with Buffalo activating Duke Williams from the practice squad, it was expected that at least one wideout would be inactive today. The Bills will have a big decision to make at receiver when they next take the field in Week 7 against the Miami Dolphins.
TE Tyler Kroft
Yet another offensive player targeting a Week 7 return, Kroft was close to taking his first snaps as a Bill before suffering an ankle injury in the lead-up to Buffalo’s home opener. Dawson Knox, Lee Smith, and Tommy Sweeney remain the tight ends.
OL Ike Boettger
Nothing to see here. Boettger has been inactive in three of Buffalo’s four games; last week, he suited up while Spencer Long recovered from injury. With Long healthy, Boettger is back to being a healthy scratch.
T Ty Nsekhe
Buffalo’s half-starter at right tackle is out with an ankle injury this week, meaning that rookie Cody Ford will almost certainly see all of the snaps at the position this week. Ryan Bates is active as the swing tackle, as Buffalo released Conor McDermott to make room for Duke Williams on the roster.
LB Corey Thompson
The second-year linebacker is out for the foreseeable future after having ankle surgery.
CB Taron Johnson
While the second-year man may be close to returning from a hamstring injury, he’ll have to wait until after the bye to suit up again.
