In addition to Sammy Watkins being placed on injured reserve, the Bills also announced receiver Greg Salas (groin) and offensive linemen Cyrus Kouandjio (ankle) and Patrick Lewis (knee) are out for Sunday's tilt with the Patriots. Offensive tackle Cordy Glenn (ankle), however, was back on the practice field for the third straight day.

4. Texans backup running back Jonathan Grimes suffered a cracked fibula against the New England Patriots and will be sidelined for about a month, the Houston Chronicle reported.

Offensive tackle Duane Brown (knee) has been ruled out while linebacker Brian Cushing (knee) is questionable for Sunday.
