Buffalo Bills inactives: EJ Manuel third string QB

The Buffalo Bills inactives list had one surprise: EJ Manuel

The Buffalo Bills inactives for Thursday Night Football have been announced and there's one noticeable move. Here's a look at tonight's inactives:

CB Mario Butler

DT Stefan Charles

Gabe Ikard

LB Randell Johnson

OT Cyrus Kouandjio

QB EJ Manuel

DT Kyle Williams

The big surprise? EJ Manuel is inactive. That means the quarterback is now third on Buffalo's depth chart behind starter Tyrod Taylor and journeyman Josh Johnson. Manuel went 0-2 as a starter this season when Taylor was out with an injury. Manuel's turnovers against the Jaguars proved to be too much for the Bills.

Among the other inactives, Cyrus Kouandjio is the only other moderate surprise. The offensive tackle has been battling a knee injury and was listed as questionable. Without Kouandjio, Jordan Mills will back up Cordy Glenn and Seantrel Henderson.

All in all, the Bills are pretty healthy as they prepare to face off with the NY Jets on Thursday Night Football.
