Saints inactives in Buffalo: LT Jammal Brown (hip, sports hernia), WR Lance Moore (hamstring), DT Kendrick Clancy (knee), LB Jo-Lonn Dunbar (healthy), RB Mike Bell (MCL sprain), TE Darnell Dinkins (foot), WR Rod Harper (healthy).
Rookie QB Chase Daniel is inactive but dressed as the emergency quarterback. Daniel was promoted from the practice squad this week.
We had speculated earlier that the Saints, without Lance Moore, would either choose likely not to use 4 WR formations or make use of KR Courtney Roby in that role. In the end we will likely see both, as well as some formations that feature RB Reggie Bush, expected to start, as a wideout.
RB Pierre Thomas is active but it is unknown how much of an impact he will have.
Second year pro RB Lynell Hamilton is active for the first time in his NFL career, the next step in a remarkable story of personal achievement.
DT Remi Ayodele is expected to start again in place of Kendrick Clancy.
For the Bills, inactive are DE Chris Ellis, WR Justin Jenkins, DB Ellis Lankster, DT John McCargo, OL Jamon Meredith, TE Shawn Nelson, and MLB Paul Posluszny. QB Gibran Hamdan is dressed as the emergency quarterback.
Nelson, a rookie fourth round pick by the Bills out of Southern Miss, is a native of Gonzales, LA.
