The Buffalo Bills announced on Saturday that starting linebacker Matt Milano has been ruled out for Tuesday’s game against the Tennessee Titans.

The recent schedule change gave the Buffalo Bills a few extra days to get their players healthy ahead of a key AFC matchup with the Tennessee Titans. However, the few extra days won’t be enough for Matt Milano, who has been ruled out.

The team’s starting linebacker suffered a pec injury against the Las Vegas Raiders and will now miss his second game of the season. He also missed Week 2 against the Miami Dolphins due to injury.

The likely scenario is that Tyrel Dodson would get the start alongside Tremaine Edmunds but A.J. Klein could also see an increase in playing time.

Aside from Milano, the Buffalo Bills gave injury designations to seven other players as questionable. The biggest concern has to be cornerback Tre’Davious White who did not practice again Saturday and hasn’t practiced all week due to a back injury. However, it should be a good sign that he was listed as questionable in comparison to doubtful for this game.

Another potential player to watch is starting right guard Brian Winters, who suffered a knee injury against the Raiders last weekend. He initially was limited on Wednesday but did not practice on Thursday. The fact that he was limited on Saturday is a good sign but if he is not able to go then Quinton Spain likely returns to the starting lineup.

A positive from this injury report was that rookie running back Zack Moss was able to practice in full on Saturday. He has missed the past two games and was limited earlier in the week. While Devin Singletary has played well in Moss’ absence, getting him back into this offense should be a boost.
