Rookie quarterback Cardale Jones hasn't dressed for a game yet this season, but that will change Sunday.
Jones will be the Bills' backup quarterback for Sunday’s game against the Jets, interim coach Anthony Lynn said Friday. He wouldn’t say whether Tyrod Taylor will be active while EJ Manuel gets the start.
Two players who definitely won’t play for the Bills are cornerback Stephon Gilmore (concussion) and left tackle Cordy Glenn (back). Both players were listed as out on the official injury report.
Linebacker Zach Brown (illness), defensive tackle Kyle Williams (back), receiver Sammy Watkins (foot), tight end Charles Clay (knee), right guard John Miller (hip) and linebacker Preston Brown (foot) are all questionable for the game.
Quarterback Tyrod Taylor (groin) was listed as a full participant Friday after sitting out Thursday under curious circumstances. The News reported that Taylor may need hernia surgery in the offseason. Taylor declined interview requests all week.
Cyrus Kouandjio will make his third straight start for Glenn. Kevon Seymour will likely start at corner for Gilmore, who could be finished in Buffalo. Gilmore is expected to seek top money in free agency.
Running back Matt Forte (knee) is listed as out for the Jets.
