Week 11 Patriots vs Bills Inactives: Sealver Siliga a Healthy Scratch

New, comments

New England will rely heavily on their young receivers.

David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

The Patriots and Bills have announced their inactives for Monday Night Football.

Patriots:

Guard Tre Jackson

Defensive tackle Sealver Siliga

Defensive lineman Trey Flowers

Linebacker Jamie Collins

Cornerback Justin Coleman

Wide receiver Keshawn Martin

Wide receiver Julian Edelman

Jackson, Collins, Coleman, and Edelman aren't surprises due to their injuries, while Flowers is receiving a redshirt season. Collins will likely be replaced by Jonathan Freeny or Jerod Mayo, while Rashaan Melvin is now the third and only depth option at cornerback. It's possible that the Patriots will use three safeties and that Devin McCourty could step up as needed.

Martin's absence means that Aaron Dobson or rookie Chris Harper will be the third receiver up in this match-up, and it's very possible that the Patriots will use multiple-tight end sets to compensate.

Siliga is an interesting note because he's a healthy scratch as one of the team's top run defenders against a run heavy team.

This signifies the return of starting tackles Sebastian Vollmer and Marcus Cannon.

Bills:

Quarterback Josh Johnson

Running back Dan Herron

Linebacker Randell Johnson

Guard Gabe Ikard

Tackle Cyrus Kouandijo

Defensive tackle Kyle Williams

Defensive tackle Stefan Charles

Buffalo is thin at defensive tackle and it's possible that the Patriots could attack up the middle with the run game.
