Cornerback Eric Rowe, tight end Jacob Hollister and offensive lineman Brian Schwenke were ruled out of Monday's game on Saturday, and then on Sunday three more were added to that list.

Sony Michel, Marcus Cannon and Geneo Grissom all did not make the trip to Buffalo and have been downgraded to out against the Bills.

For Michel, it isn't much of a surprise as he suffered a knee injury against the Bears last week and only practiced on Saturday. For Cannon, it will be his second straight game missed after suffering a concussion against the Chiefs. He practiced on a limited basis all week. Grissom was also limited all week with an ankle injury.

LaAdrian Waddle will once again start at right tackle and then the team likely will need to make a move at running back, which in all likelihood will be promoting Kenneth Farrow from the practice squad. If this happens, the Patriots will go into the game with James White, Kenjon Barner and Farrow as the running backs.

The team will have to make a corresponding move if it does indeed add Farrow.
