Bills list Glenn as out vs. Falcons, Lawson questionable

The Buffalo Bills could be without two starters for Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons.

The Bills listed left tackle Cordy Glenn (foot/ankle) as out, while defensive end Shaq Lawson (groin) is questionable. Neither practiced Friday.

Rookie Dion Dawkins is expected to replace Glenn, who also was inactive for last Sunday's victory against the Denver Broncos, for the second week in a row.

"I’m confident in Dion," coach Sean McDermott said. "He’s only going to continue to get better, just like the rest of our team. That’s what we’re focused on, continuous improvement, whether it’s Dion, or anyone else for that matter, myself included. We’re just going to continue to grow and get better, and learn from our mistakes.

"The good part about it is you have a young guy here who has already got a significant number of snaps under his belt at left tackle, he has played some right tackle obviously. When you look at the number of young players that are on the field for us, whether it’s Dion, (cornerback) Tre’Davious (White), some of the other young players that we have, getting significant time is all good for us."

McDermott said Lawson's availability against the Falcons would be a game-time decision.

If Lawson can't play, Ryan Davis and Eddie Yarbrough will take turns filling his spot.

Meanwhile, defensive tackle Marcell Dareus is expected to return from the ankle injury that sidelined him last week, barring a setback, McDermott said.

Dareus was one of three Bills players listed as full participants in Friday's practice. The others were running back LeSean McCoy (wrist) and defensive tackle Jerel Worthy (who is out of concussion protocol).
