One week ago, the Buffalo Bills were busy trying to cut their roster down to the league mandated 53 players. Since that time, they have made some additional moves and built out their practice squad.
However, that is not the end of their roster decisions as the Buffalo Bills will not be able to have all 53 players active on game day. The league allows teams to only have 48 players active so if no players are set to miss the game due to injuries, the coaching staff will need to determine five players who are healthy scratches.
When looking at the roster, these are five players that are the most likely to fall into that category.
5 Buffalo Bills most likely to be inactive on game day in 2023
Ryan Van Demark
One of the best stories of training camp and preseason was the emergence of offensive tackle Ryan Van Demark. The Bills lost Brandon Shell and Tommy Doyle before the season with Shell retiring and Doyle suffering a season-ending injury which created an opportunity for Van Demark.
The Buffalo Bills have 10 offensive linemen currently on their 53-man roster and it is unlikely the need all 10 active on game day. The final spot will come down to Van Demark and Alec Anderson but I think Anderson gets the nod most weeks as he has great versatility and can play all five spots.
