The Patriots will be as healthy as they can be as they prepare to fight for their playoff spot against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.

Cornerback Marcus Jones and receiver DeVante Parker are officially active for the win-and-in matchup after being off the injury report by the end of this past week. Both were recovering from concussions.

Receiver Jakobi Meyers (shoulder) and corner Jonathan Jones (chest) will play as well.

Cornerback Jalen Mills and tight end Jonnu Smith, meanwhile, were already ruled out with a groin injury and concussion, respectively. Special teams ace Brenden Schooler will also miss the game.

Mills’ absence means New England will again be thin at cornerback. Tae Hayes is expected to fill in against a stacked Buffalo receiving corps with Shaun Wade inactive.

The Bills, on the other hand, have a clean bill of health from their injury report and will be full strength as they try to lock up the AFC’s No. 2 seed as Damar Hamlin watches on.

Here are the inactives for both teams:
