The Buffalo Bills announced Week 17 inactives and Emmanuel Sanders is officially INACTIVE for their matchup against the Falcons. Sanders was listed as questionable this week due to a knee injury. He was listed as a non-participant in practice throughout the week.

With Sanders not playing on Sunday afternoon, we could see more snaps for second-year wide receiver Gabriel Davis and veteran Isaiah McKenzie. McKenzie stepped up last week for the Bills, recording a season-high 11 receptions (12 targets) for 125 yards and a touchdown.

As for Davis, he did not play last week against the New England Patriots as he was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list. However, before Week 16, the former UCF receiver had scored a touchdown in three-straight games. Bills QB Josh Allen will be looking towards both wide receivers in what should be a win at home for Buffalo.
