NFL notes: Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin to miss Sunday's game

Buffalo Bills receiver Kelvin Benjamin will not play against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday because of an injured right knee.

The Bills said Benjamin did not travel with the team Saturday. He was hurt while being tackled on a 20-yard reception on Buffalo's opening drive in a 54-24 loss at the Los Angeles Chargers last weekend.

He was playing only his second game with Buffalo since his trade from Carolina on Oct. 31.

The injury further thins Buffalo's group of receivers. Jordan Matthews (knee), Deonte Thompson (ankle) and tight end Charles Clay (knee) are listed as questionable.

Tyrod Taylor returns as the starting quarterback. He had been replaced by rookie Nathan Peterman, who had five passes intercepted by the Chargers.

Buffalo (5-5) has lost three in a row.


The Tennessee Titans have activated wide receiver Harry Douglas from injured reserve. Douglas had been on injured reserve since the start of the season as he recovered from a knee injury. He caught 15 passes for 210 yards and no touchdowns last season. The 33-year-old Douglas has 309 career catches for 3,751 yards and 10 touchdowns. Saturday's move makes Douglas available for the Titans' game Sunday at Indianapolis. The Titans waived wide receiver Darius Jennings to make room for Douglas. …

Atlanta Falcons running back Devonta Freeman has been ruled out for the second straight week with a concussion and won't play against Tampa Bay. Atlanta (6-4) will rely again on Tevin Coleman and third-stringer Terron Ward when the Falcons (6-4) host Tampa Bay (4-6) on Sunday. Freeman, the NFL's highest-paid running back, looked good as he worked on the side during Friday's practice. Quinn didn't want to speculate if Freeman, who's been in concussion protocol twice since preseason, will miss additional time.
