Bills, Chargers, Jaguars all without starting tackles
The Buffalo Bills will be without starting left tackle Cordy Glenn against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.
Glenn aggravated an injury to his left foot and ankle in a 34-21 loss at the New York Jets on Nov. 2. Rookie Dion Dawkins will start for Glenn.
The Bills also get starting tight end Charles Clay back after missing three games with a left knee injury, and receiver Kelvin Benjamin will make his Bills debut 12 days after being acquired by Buffalo in a trade with Carolina. The Bills, however, will be minus No. 2 receiver Zay Jones after the rookie hurt his left knee and ankle against the Jets. Starting cornerback E.J. Gaines will miss his third straight game with a hamstring injury.
Both the Los Angeles Chargers and Jacksonville Jaguars will be without their starting right tackles.
Chargers right tackle Joe Barksdale is inactive because of a foot injury, and Jaguars right tackle Jermey Parnell is out with a knee injury. Michael Schofield will start in place of Barksdale, and Josh Wells will start in place of Parnell. The Chargers also will be without leading tackler Hayes Pullard (neck). Denzel Perryman (ankle) returns from injured reserve and replaces Pullard.
Tennessee tight end Delanie Walker is playing after being questionable a second straight week with a bone bruise in his ankle. He led the Titans in catches and yards receiving last week in a win over Baltimore.
But Cincinnati will be without three defensive starters with tackle Pat Sims, linebacker Kevin Minter and safety Shawn Williams all out. Vontaze Burfict is starting for Minter against the Titans.
Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen, who has a streak of eight games with a sack, is inactive against the Redskins. Griffen is only the third player in the past 35 seasons with a sack in each of his team’s first eight games – and his total of 10 ranks third in the league. But the NFC defensive player of the month for October is sidelined by foot and back injuries.
Minnesota also is without right tackle Mike Remmers, who has a concussion, putting a stop to his 45-game streak of consecutive starts.
The Redskins are missing two tight ends, including Jordan Reed, but four starting offensive linemen who missed last week’s game are all active: LT Trent Williams, LG Shawn Lauvao, C Spencer Long and RG Brandon Scherff.
Green Bay tackle Bryan Bulaga is out against Chicago with an injured knee.
Detroit defensive end Ezekiel Ansah is inactive against Cleveland with a back injury, an ailment that left him doubtful on the injury report Friday. The Lions will have rookie receiver Kenny Golladay, who scored twice in his debut, back on the field after missing five games with a hamstring injury.
