The Buffalo Bills are entering Sunday night’s game against the Green Bay Packers in Week 8 the healthiest they have probably been all season. However, this doesn’t mean they are back to full strength and will be without one starter for this game.

On Friday, the team announced that Spencer Brown has been ruled out due to an ankle injury. He suffered the injury in Week 6 against the Kansas City Chiefs. This is not a surprise because Brown has not been able to practice at all this week.

The Buffalo Bills will likely have David Quessenberry step in as the starter. He replaced Spencer Brown in Week 3 and Week 6 when the former third round pick left early due to injuries.

Jake Kumerow expected to return in Week 8 for the Buffalo Bills

The good news is that there don’t appear to be any other players in jeopardy of missing the game on Sunday night. Outside of Spencer Brown, the only payers who were not able to practice in full on Friday were Stefon Diggs and Von Miller but that was due to vet rest days.

One notable return is wide receiver Jake Kumerow, who suffered an ankle injury in Week 3 against the Miami Dolphins.

He hasn’t played since that game and should step back into his role as a key contributor on special teams while seeing some snaps on offense. Kumerow should be joined by Taiwan Jones who is dealing with a knee injury.

Jones began the week missing practice on Wednesday but was limited on Thursday before being able to practice in full on Friday. He was listed as questionable for this week but would appear to be ready to go based on his participation in practice.

The Buffalo Bills will announce their inactives about 90 minutes before kickoff on Sunday night.
