Bills rookie running back won't play at Jacksonville

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Bills rookie running back Marshawn Lynch will miss his second consecutive game because of a badly
sprained left ankle when Buffalo plays at Jacksonville on Sunday.

Lynch, the Bills' top offensive threat, was ruled out by coach
Dick Jauron after he missed his third practice on Friday. He hasn't
played since the injury in Buffalo's win over Miami two weeks ago.

Veteran Anthony Thomas started for Lynch in last week's loss to
New England, and will likely do the same against the Jaguars (7-3).
Rookie Dwayne Wright also will see playing time for Buffalo (5-5).

Lynch has gained 751 yards on the ground and leads all AFC
rookies in yards rushing. He has also scored six touchdowns and
thrown for another.

Defensive back Jerametrius Butler (calf), meanwhile, is questionable.

The Bills also released linebacker Leon Joe and signed
cornerback Dustin Fox off their practice squad. Fox has spent the
past seven weeks on the team's practice squad.

Buffalo (5-5) will be looking to bounce back after being
trounced 56-10 by the Patriots, while Jacksonville has won seven of
its last nine and two straight.
