One Buffalo Bills Starter Ruled Out For Sunday’s Game Against Packers
The Buffalo Bills will play the Green Bay Packers this Sunday night for what will be the Bills' third prime time game already this season; and the second at home.
This will also be the first time the Packers have played in Orchard Park since 2014, when Doug Marrone was the head coach and Kyle Orton was the Bills starting quarterback.
The Bills are much healthier entering this matchup than they were from week 3-6.
We know that safety Micah Hyde and tackle Tommy Doyle are out for the season. Tre'Davious White will miss at least one more game, as he recovers from ACL surgery, but the Bills injury report looks great this week.
Head coach Sean McDermott only ruled out one starter this week on WGR radio, ahead of Sunday.
Starting right tackle Spencer Brown will not play against Green Bay.
Brown was hurt early in the Bills week 6 game against the Kansas City Chiefs and has not practiced all week.
This means veteran David Quessenberry will start at right tackle, which is what happened for the majority of training camp.
As for the Packers, they will likely not have their de-facto number one wide receiver on Sunday.
Allen Lazard is not likely to play with a shoulder injury.
The Packers are already struggling on offense, especially the passing game, so this isn't good news for them. They're also going up against the number one defense in the NFL.
Former Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins will start against his former team, as well as rookies Romeo Doubs and Christian Watson. Randall Cobb is also hurt and won't play.
This is a game the Bills should win on Sunday Night Football.
