Buffalo Bills left tackle Dion Dawkins has been ruled out of Thursday's game against the New England Patriots in Foxborough, Mass.
Also Wednesday, the Patriots ruled out running back Damien Harris (thigh) and offensive lineman Isaiah Wynn (foot) for the key AFC East tilt.
Dawkins did not participate in practice all week with an ankle injury sustained in Buffalo's 28-25 victory over the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving.
David Quessenberry replaced Dawkins in that game for the Bills (8-3), who have won two in a row heading into Thursday's tilt versus the Patriots (6-5).
Linebacker Von Miller (knee) previously had been ruled out for Thursday's game, while tight end Quintin Morris (illness) wasn't given a designation after serving as a full participant in Wednesday's practice.
Harris was injured in last Thursday's game against Minnesota after rushing for 16 yards on five carries. Second-year RB Rhamondre Stevenson likely will get the start in Harris' absence.
Wynn will miss his second straight game.
Starting cornerback Jalen Mills (groin), starting wideout Jakobi Meyers (shoulder) and safety Jabrill Peppers (illness) are among six Patriots who are listed as questionable. Offensive lineman David Andrews (thigh) is expected to play.
