The Buffalo Bills will host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday Night Football tonight.

Believe it or not, this is only the third time in history that Tampa will be in Orchard Park. The other two times were in 2009 and 2017. The NFL scheduling was different before that, although going more than 30 years without coming to play in a city is pretty remarkable. Simply put, we don't often see the Bucs in Buffalo.

The Bills will have a number of players out tonight, including Matt Milano, DaQuan Jones, Tre'Davious White, Dawson Knox, Quintin Morris and Baylon Spector.

Knox had wrist surgery on Tuesday. Head coach Sean McDermott said that they didn't know how long he would be out, but according to Ian Rapoport, Knox will miss at least the next four weeks.

Rapoport says that Knox is likely to be placed on injured reserve, which means he will miss at least the next four weeks.

If you remember back in 2021, Knox missed several games with a finger/hand injury, which also required surgery. This looks to be at least the same amount of time, if not longer.

With Morris also out tonight, the Bills likely activate Joel Wilson to backup rookie Dalton Kincaid; with guard David Edwards also getting half-back looks.

Kincaid caught eight passes for 75 yards against New England, which may indicate he is ready to break out. The Bills desperately need a receiving threat after Stefon Diggs and this could be he answer for Buffalo.

Kickoff tonight is 8:20 pm from Highmark Stadium.
