ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -- Baltimore cornerback Chris McAlister and tight end Todd Heap were both inactive Sunday against the Bills.
McAlister will miss his first game of the season after his troublesome knee kept him out of practice all week. Heap (hamstring) and starting offensive tackle Adam Terry (ankle) both missed their second game.
Buffalo is coming off a bye following a gut-wrenching loss to the Cowboys on "Monday Night Football." The week off should have done the Bills well. This was a beat-up team and that gave it time to heal a bit and get rookie QB Trent Edwards even more up to speed. But the Bills roster remains very thin. Baltimore hosted the winless Rams Sunday and controlled the contest from start to finish. After this game, the Ravens have their bye and could be in excellent shape for the postseason with a win in Buffalo to go 5-2. The Ravens have not been dominating by any means this year and their wins haven't been pretty, but they are grinding out victories.
