The (relatively) healthy Buffalo Bills are missing just one player from their active, 53-man roster for their Monday Night Football game against the New England Patriots due to injury: defensive lineman Kyle Williams, who has now missed four straight games with a knee ailment.
Among the six other healthy scratches, the biggest surprise is most definitely tackle Cyrus Kouandjio, who, even though he missed the last two games with a knee injury, had returned to practice on a full-time basis this week. His ending up on the inactive list means that Jordan Mills will serve as the Bills' swing tackle for a third straight week. Every other healthy scratch has appeared with that designation on multiple occasions for the team this year.
Here's the Bills' full list of inactives:
- QB Josh Johnson (healthy scratch)
- RB Boom Herron (healthy scratch)
- OT Cyrus Kouandjio (healthy scratch)
- C Gabe Ikard (healthy scratch)
- DL Kyle Williams (knee)
- DL Stefan Charles (healthy scratch)
- LB Randell Johnson (healthy scratch)
The Bills and the Patriots kick off at 8:30 p.m. ET on ESPN.
