Bills Could Be Missing an Important Player on Offense Tomorrow
It feels like the Buffalo Bills just played a game and now will play another one tomorrow.
The Bills will travel to Detroit this afternoon to play the Lions on Thanksgiving tomorrow. Kickoff will be at 12:30 pm.
It's the second game at Ford Field in five days, after the Bills beat the Cleveland Browns this past Sunday; a game moved because of the lake effect snowstorm in Western New York. It's also the third Thanksgiving Day game for the Bills in four years.
The Bills will have quarterback Josh Allen, who has improved since injuring his elbow against the New York Jets two and a half weeks ago. However, the Bills could be without a key piece on offense against the Lions.
The Bills have listed starting center Mitch Morse as questionable. He's missed practice all week with an elbow and ankle injury.
Buffalo has ruled out linebacker Tremaine Edmunds and edge rusher Greg Rousseau. The Bills will likely not have fellow edge rusher A.J. Epenesa, who is doubtful with an ankle injury.
What's the most fascinating here is that starting cornerback Tre'Davious White was not ruled out. It's the first time that White hasn't been ruled out before a game day, as he is coming back from ACL reconstruction surgery.
We have to wait and see whether or not White is activated but it would be a small surprise if he plays against Detroit.
As for Morse, the Bills will likely move Ryan Bates to center or have Greg Van Roten play center, which was the case for the Bills game against the Miami Dolphins, which was by far the game where Allen faced the most pressure this season.
