Buffalo Bills vs. New England Patriots Monday Night Football Inactives

Four linemen are inactive for the Bills on Monday Night Football

The Buffalo Bills and New England Patriots announced their inactives for Monday Night Football. Here's a look at who is out for each team:

Bills Inactives

Stefan Charles DT
Boom Herron RB
Gabe Ikard OL
Josh Johnson QB
Randell Johnson LB
Cyrus Kouandjio LB
Kyle Williams  DT

Without Dan HerronLeodis McKelvin may handle kickoff returns. Back in 2009, a costly McKelvin fumble cost the Bills a victory over the Patriots on Monday Night Football in 2009. McKelvin could find redemption tonight against New England.

Josh Johnson is back to being Buffalo's third string quarterback. Rex Ryan announced that this would be the case for the rest of the season.

Last, Cyrus Kouandjio is inactive for Buffalo. This means that Jordan Mills is Buffalo's reserve tackle for tonight's game.

Patriots Inactives

Justin Coleman CB
Jamie Collins LB
Julian Edelman WR
Trey Flowers DL
Tre Jackson OG
Keshawn Martin WR
Sealver Silga DT

New England is missing one of Tom Brady's favorite targets in Edelman and a speed option in Keshawn Martin. This should allow the Bills to double team Rob Gronkowski throughout the evening. Offensive guard Tre Jackson is also out for the Patriots. Defensively, star linebacker Jamie Collins will be out for New England. This is huge for the Bills as Collins was athletic enough to spy Tyrod Taylor and cover LeSean McCoy in coverage. It'll be interesting to see how the Patriots make up for Collins' loss.
