No surprises for a relatively healthy Bills team

The Buffalo Bills take on the Baltimore Ravens in just around 90 minutes. Both teams unveiled their inactive players moments ago, and neither list has any true surprises on it. Only one player had been ruled out in advance of the contest, but at least on Buffalo’s end, the other inactive players are the same guys who have been healthy scratches for much of the season.

Here is the full list of inactive players for both teams.


RB T.J. Yeldon

With rookie Devin Singletary firmly in control of the “feature back” role, veteran Frank Gore firmly entrenched as the backup, and specialist Senorise Perry playing on special teams, Yeldon has no role on this year’s team when the roster is fully healthy. It’s fair to speculate whether he’ll have a role next year, as well.

WR Duke Williams

The big-bodied wideout is inactive again, as the team rolls with Isaiah McKenzie and Andre Roberts as the fourth and fifth receivers. Robert Foster, John Brown, and Cole Beasley round out the receiving corps.

TE Tommy Sweeney

The second of Buffalo’s rookie tight ends has been inactive since veteran Tyler Kroft returned from injury. That’s how it should stay barring an injury to Kroft, Lee Smith, or Dawson Knox.

T Ty Nsekhe

The veteran is still recovering from an ankle injury suffered against the Miami Dolphins three weeks ago. He had been splitting starters reps with rookie Cody Ford. The versatile Ryan Bates, another rookie, serves as the active swing tackle in Nsekhe’s place.

G Ike Boettger

Boettger is once again inactive. When veteran starter Quinton Spain missed some time in practice this week due to illness, there was some worry that he’d be unavailable. However, he is fully healthy, so Boettger remains out.

DT Vincent Taylor

After appearing in one game, the Bills essentially replaced Taylor with veteran Corey Liuget, who has been active since he signed with the team on November 5. Ed Oliver, Jordan Phillips, and Star Lotulelei are the other defensive tackles.

S Dean Marlowe

With all of Buffalo’s secondary players healthy, it’s Marlowe who is the healthy scratch. Veteran Kurt Coleman and rookie Jaquan Johnson serve as backups to Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer. Given Baltimore’s propensity to run two-and-three tight end sets, fellow backup safety Siran Neal could be a huge part of today’s game plan.

Here is the full list for Baltimore. Wide receiver Marquise “Hollywood” Brown, listed as questionable due to an ankle injury, is active today.
