Bills head coach Sean McDermott said "a majority" of the starters will play today against the Jets in the team's regular season finale, but that didn't mean all of them. Wide receivers Cole Beasley and John Brown were among the healthy scratches on Buffalo's inactive list Sunday.
Their absence from the lineup is understandable in terms of their importance to Buffalo's passing game. The pair have represented more than 46 percent of the team's passing targets this season, 50 percent of the team's receptions and almost 57 percent of the team's receiving yardage.
Top cornerback Tre'Davious White is also inactive along with rookie feature back Devin Singletary.
Buffalo obviously wants all of those players healthy and rested for next week's AFC Wild Card playoff game.
Shaq Lawson and Andre Roberts were already declared out for today's regular season finale against the Jets on Friday with hamstring and foot injuries respectively. Roberts wound up missing both games against his former club due to injury. He missed the season opener with a quad injury.
Here is the full list of Bills inactives for today's game.
