The Bills announced that outside linebacker Shawne Merriman will not travel with the team and has been downgraded to out for Sunday’s game against the Giants.
Merriman had been listed as “doubtful” after his left Achilles’ tendon flared up during Thursday’s practice. Merriman has also been dealing with a shoulder injury that kept him out of Wednesday’s practice.
In five games this season, Merriman has nine tackles and a quarterback sack.
The Bills are on their bye week after the Giants game, which gives Merriman additional time to rest before the Bills host the Washington Redskins in Toronto on October 30.
