One advantage the Buffalo Bills have over the New England Patriots? The health of their roster. Buffalo's injury report is rather short this week and only defensive tackle Kyle Williams has been ruled out. Rex Ryan noted today that Williams has a 50/50 shot of playing again this season. Here's a look at Buffalo's injury report for Week 11:
OUT: Kyle Williams
QUESTIONABLE: Richie Incognito (shoulder)
Although Incognito is listed as questionable, Rex Ryan said the offensive guard will be playing for the Bills on Monday night. Incognito has been one of the best offensive guards in the NFL so Bills fans should be relieved to hear that he'd be playing against the Patriots. Buffalo's rookie running back and veteran cornerback had been dealing with illnesses but they're both good to go for Monday.
The Patriots injury report is much longer than Buffalo's and three players have been ruled out.
New England will be without Jamie Collins at linebacker. Collins was dominant in Week 2 against the Bills and logged 2.5 sacks. His loss is huge for New England. In addition, New England will be without their third cornerback in Coleman. Taking Coleman's place will be Rashaan Melvin.
It seems as though New England won't be missing any of their offensive linemen on Monday Night Football, but three members are dealing with injuries.
Can Buffalo take advantage of the banged up Patriots on Monday Night Football? Time will tell.
