Bills starting safety Aaron Williams, receiver Mike Williams inactive against Patriots


ORCHARD PARK, New York — Buffalo Bills starting safety Aaron Williams is inactive against the New England Patriots on Sunday because of a wrist and neck injury.

The Bills made a surprise move by listing receiver Mike Williams inactive even though he spent the entire week practicing. The Bills had also discussed increasing Williams' playing time as part of their red-zone offense.

Buffalo's starting defensive tackle Kyle Williams and linebacker Nigel Bradham are active after both missed last week's 17-14 win at Detroit because of knee injuries.

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady will start after being listed as questionable because of an ankle injury Friday.

Linebacker Dont'a Hightower will miss his second straight game because of a knee injury.

Rookie starting center Bryan Stork is inactive because of a concussion.
