The Buffalo Bills are going to look to move to 9-6 on the season when they play the Los Angeles Chargers on Saturday night. After big wins over the Kansas City Chiefs and Dallas Cowboys, the Bills are going to try to avoid a let down game in a matchup with the Chargers that they should win easily.

During the week, the Bills had already ruled out starting safety Micah Hyde for the second straight week as he deals with a neck stinger. The only other player who was ruled out for this week was wide receiver Justin Shorter but he is still on injured reserve and hasn't been activated to the 53-man roster.

The Bills had three players questionable for this game with one being running back Ty Johnson. He is inactive due to that shoulder injury but the team elevated Leonard Fournette from the practice squad and he is active.

This is the first game this season that the veteran running back is active for a game and he should get between 5-10 touches tonight.

The Buffalo Bills also are without defensive end A.J. Epenesa back this week. He suffered a rib injury against the Chiefs after an early interception and missed last week against the Dallas Cowboys. With him out for this game, Kingsley Jonathan is active and should see some snaps in the rotation.

The Buffalo Bills also have defensive tackle Poona Ford active for tonight's game as he should replace Jordan Phillips, who was placed on injured reserve earlier this week. Ford hasn't played in a game since Week 8 against the Bucs but could see close to 30% of the defensive snaps in the rotation at the position.
