ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — The New England Patriots will need to reconfigure their offensive line again Sunday.
Rookie center Bryan Stork, who has started the past two games for the Patriots, didn’t make the trip to face the Buffalo Bills and has been declared inactive with a concussion. Cornerback Brandon Browner (ankle) and rookie defensive tackle Dominique Easley (shoulder, knee) also didn’t make the trip with the Patriots and won’t play against the Bills.
Browner has yet to make his debut with the Patriots after serving a four-game suspension to begin the season. He participated in a walk-through with the Patriots on Wednesday, then missed practice on Thursday and Friday.
Easley was injured last Sunday in the Patriots’ 43-17 win over the Cincinnati Bengals.
With Stork out, either Ryan Wendell or Dan Connolly will have to move over from guard to center. Marcus Cannon likely will fill the void at guard, though Josh Kline or Jordan Devey also could get the start.
