The Bills also were without linebacker Bryan Scott (head), safety Todd Johnson (hamstring) and receiver Josh Reed (ankle).

Falcons running back Michael Turner was inactive for the fourth time in six games with an ankle injury. Defensive end Jamaal Anderson (chest), cornerback Chris Houston (hamstring) and guard Harvey Dahl (ankle) also were inactive.
