Buffalo Bills: Inactives for Week 17 against the Miami Dolphins
These are the inactives for the Buffalo Bills in Week 17 against the Miami Dolphins.
The Buffalo Bills enter today’s game against the Miami Dolphins with a number of changes to their roster. The most notable is that Cole Beasley is going to be inactive after being ruled out on Friday due to a knee injury.
Beasley, who has 967 receiving yards on the season, has been a key part of this offense as the team’s slot receiver. The hope is that he will be able to return for the first game of the playoffs however this week against the Dolphins it will likely be Isaiah McKenzie stepping into the starting lineup.
The other player who was ruled out on Friday was tight end Reggie Gilliam, who will be missing his second game in a row due to a hamstring injury. On Saturday, the team announced that Tyler Kroft would be added to the Reserve/COVID-19 list and also would miss this week.
After the news about Kroft, the Bills called up Nate Becker from the practice squad and he will be active for the first time in his NFL career.
This week also marks the return of wide receiver John Brown. He was placed on injured reserve during the Bills’ bye week with a knee and ankle injury but was activated last week before the Patriots game.
However, he was considered to be a close contact to T.J. Yeldon and was placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list before the game.
The other players that are inactive this week are: defensive ends Jerry Hughes and Mario Addison, quarterback Jake Fromm, cornerback Tre’Davious White and offensive tackle Ty Nsekhe.
The fact that Hughes and Addison are both inactive likely means this will be a big week for rookie A.J. Epenesa along with Darryl Johnson, Trent Murphy and Mike Love.
