Buffalo Bills linebackers Matt Milano and Tremaine Edmunds are both expected to be active on Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams. That according to Kim Jones of NFL Network. Jones also reports slot CB Taron Johnson will be good to go.
Edmunds and Milano both missed the Week 2 victory over the Miami Dolphins. Milano hurt his hamstring in the second quarter of the season opener while Edmunds was injured in the second half of that game. Without the duo, both the New York Jets and the Dolphins took advantage of the middle of the field. Replacements A.J. Klein and Tyrel Dodson didn’t have as much success.
The Rams are expected to test the second level of the Bills’ defense with play-action on Sunday, so having experienced players like Milano and Edmunds in the game is helpful. The length of Edmunds getting in the passing lane should also limit the tight end game of Los Angeles.
The Bills promoted Deon Lacey from the practice squad, but that seems more like a move for special teams as Del’Shawn Phillips is out. With Andre Smith still on the practice squad but not called up, it was a good sign on Saturday that both Milano and Edmunds would play.
Johnson was added to the injury report with a groin problem this week and was listed as questionable.
