Cliff Avril out; Spievey gets start at strong safety
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Rookie Amari Spievey will get his second straight start at strong safety today against the Buffalo Bills. Last week when he was in for the injured C.C. Brown (knee), Spievey had five tackles. Brown is back today.
Also Turk McBride will start at defensive end in place of Cliff Avril (quadriceps).
Zac Robinson will serve as the third quarterback behind starter Shaun Hill and Drew Stanton. Matthew Stafford (right shoulder) is in attendance.
Dave Rayner will start for Jason Hanson (right knee). Hanson made the trip for moral support.
Other inactives are LB Isaiah Ekejiuba (knee), RB Aaron Brown, WR Derrick Williams and T Jason Fox.
With Avril out Lawrence Jackson is active for just the second time in the last five games.
A light rain has been falling on and off at Ralph Wilson Stadium.
