Bills Notebook: Top two left tackles missing from practice

The Buffalo Bills were without both of their top two left tackles as they began practicing in earnest Wednesday for Sunday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Cordy Glenn, who has missed the last two games, remains sidelined with the foot and ankle problems that have bothered him the entire season.

Rookie Dion Dawkins, who has started four games in Glenn's place, was out with an illness.

Wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin, who suffered a knee injury in Sunday's loss against the Los Angeles Chargers, also was held out of Wednesday's workout, along with guard John Miller (ankle).

Tight end Charles Clay (knee), kicker Stephen Hauschka (right hip), wide receivers Jordan Matthews (knee) and Deonte Thompson (ankle), and running back Mike Tolbert (hamstring) worked on a limited basis.

Safety Micah Hyde (knee) and wide receiver Andre Holmes (ankle) were full participants.

For his career, he has 485 tackles (401 solo), two sacks, 137 passes defensed, 29 interceptions, six forced fumbles and 12 fumble recoveries.

Revis, a seven-time Pro Bowler, has returned three interceptions for touchdowns.

Chiefs defensive coordinator Bob Sutton on Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor: “He’s one of those guys who can be standing this close and you can’t get him down. That’s one of the real challenges. Anytime you have a quarterback who can extend plays and make plays and do the things he does it makes it really difficult because it stresses the defense.

"There’s the play and then there’s the play within the play. Sometimes he makes that play within the play pretty effective. A lot of times when he takes off scrambling, he scrambles more than any quarterback in our league, he’s a dangerous guy.”
