Bills LT Dion Dawkins ruled out vs. Patriots

Buffalo Bills left tackle Dion Dawkins has been ruled out of Thursday’s game against the New England Patriots in Foxborough, Mass.

Dawkins did not participate in practice all week with an ankle injury sustained in Buffalo’s 28-25 victory over the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving.

David Quessenberry replaced Dawkins in that game for the Bills (8-3), who have won two in a row heading into Thursday’s tilt versus the Patriots (6-5).

Linebacker Von Miller (knee) previously had been ruled out for Thursday’s game, while tight end Quintin Morris (illness) is listed as questionable after serving as a full participant in Wednesday’s practice.
