That opens the door for first alternate Marshawn Lynch to make his first Pro Bowl roster.
A shoulder injury sidelined Lynch for the season finale against the New England Patriots, but he has been cleared to play in the Pro Bowl.
Lynch will be the ninth Bills running back to be named to a Pro Bowl or the AFL All-Star game. The others were Cookie Gilchrist, Bobby Burnett, Keith Lincoln, O.J. Simpson, Joe Cribbs, Greg Bell, Thurman Thomas and Travis Henry.
