ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- The following Patriots players are inactive for Saturday's Wild Card game against the Bills: quarterback Jarrett Stidham, tight end Devin Asiasi, offensive lineman Isaiah Wynn, defensive lineman Carl Davis, wide receiver Kristian Wilkerson, outside linebacker Chase Winovich and running back J.J. Taylor.
This means N'Keal Harry, Kyle Dugger, Christian Barmore and Dont'a Hightower are all active. Barmore is very interesting as he needed to be carted to the locker room last Sunday in Miami with a knee injury. Hightower and Dugger both missed last week.
Wynn was ruled out Thursday, while Stidham, Asiasi, Davis, Wilkerson, Winovich and Taylor are all healthy scratches.
Defensive back DeVante Busby, defensive back D’Angelo Ross, defensive tackle Daniel Ekuale are all active after being elevated from the practice squad. The Patriots are down Jalen Mills and Shaun Wade (COVID) in the secondary.
Davis and Winovich are the most noteworthy inactives, as they have both played roles for the defense this season.
