The Bills announced that wide receiver Marquez Stevenson has been activated from the injured reserve list. He spent the first 10 weeks of the season on injured reserve with a foot injury. He returned to practice on Tuesday.

Stevenson was drafted in the sixth round (203rd overall) of the 2021 NFL Draft out of Houston. He was a standout receiver and kick returner in college. He produced 22 touchdown receptions (sixth in school history) and returned 34 kickoffs with three touchdowns. Stevenson is a native of Shreveport, LA.

The Bills also elevated two defensive tackles from the practice squad for tonight's game – Eli Ankou and Brandin Bryant. Ankou is in his fifth NFL season and would see his first playing time of the 2021 season if he's active tonight. Bryant entered the NFL in 2016 and would see his first action of 2021 if he's active tonight. He played in one game for Buffalo in 2020.
