OT Scott out for Sunday

Buffalo's defense won't be the only side of the ball for the Bills that's shorthanded on Sunday. On Saturday the team announced that starting right tackle Jonathan Scott is out for their Week 10 game at Tennessee.

Scott did not travel with the team Saturday and will miss the game due to undisclosed personal reasons. His absence leaves the Bills offensive line precariously thin at offensive tackle. Buffalo enters the game with just two healthy tackles on the roster, counting starting left tackle Demetrius Bell.

The other healthy tackle is veteran Kirk Chambers. Rookie Jamon Meredith has started at right tackle for each of the last three games in place of Scott, who has been out with a high ankle sprain suffered in Week 5 against Cleveland.

But Meredith left Buffalo's Week 8 game against Houston with a knee injury and only practiced on a limited basis this week. He's listed as questionable for Sunday's game.

Even if he can go Sunday against Tennessee, whether his knee is strong enough to hold up for the whole game will bear watching. If he can't go Chambers will start at right tackle. Chambers relieved Meredith in the Houston game after he left with the knee injury.

Meredith is expected to be a game time decision.
