The Patriots will not be at full strength Sunday against the Bills.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, running back James White and receiver Chris Hogan are not expected to play. Although he finished the game, White injured his ankle against the Steelers last Sunday. With Rex Burkhead already ruled out, the Patriots will be depending on Dion Lewis and Mike Gillislee.

Hogan returned from a shoulder injury two weeks ago in Miami, but wasn't himself. He also missed last Sunday in Pittsburgh. Kenny Britt may see a larger role this week.

Also, left tackle Nate Solder was added to the injury report with an illness late Saturday night. He's questionable. If he cannot play, LaAdrian Waddle and Cameron Fleming would be forced into action at the two tackle spots with rookie Cole Croston serving as the swing tackle.
