The depth on the offensive line is going to be tested today for the Buffalo Bills

The Buffalo Bills offensive line is going to be without a few key players this week against the Carolina Panthers. On Friday, Dion Dawkins was added to the Reserve/COVID-19 list and was not activated before this game.

The thought was that Spencer Brown would move to left tackle, Daryl Williams to right tackle, and Jon Feliciano, who was activated off injured reserve last week would step in at right guard. However, the Bills announced Sunday morning that Feliciano was also placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list.

There is no question the depth on the offensive line is going to be tested today and the Bills once again will probably turn to Cody Ford at right guard. Since both players are on the Reserve/COVID-19 list and not on the active roster they were not listed among the inactives.

Emmanuel Sanders inactive for the Buffalo Bills in Week 15

The Buffalo Bills knew it was a longshot that Emmanuel Sanders would play today after listing him as doubtful on Friday. The starting wide receiver did not practice at all after suffering a knee injury against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

On Sunday, the Bills made it official that Sanders would not play and he was among the team’s inactives. This opens the door for Gabriel Davis to have an expanded role which could be great news as the second-year wide receiver has played well in limited opportunities as of late.

Zack Moss, A.J. Epenesa the other inactives for Week 15

The other two players who were on the active roster but will not play today are running back Zack Moss and defensive end A.J. Epenesa. This will be the second straight week, and three out of the last four weeks, that Moss is a healthy scratch as the team has Matt Breida playing more as of late alongside Devin Singletary.

As for Epenesa, he was a late addition to the Buffalo Bills injury report after being limited on Friday due to an ankle injury. He was listed as questionable but it was enough to have him inactive this week.
