The Buffalo Bills have been very healthy so far this season. Last week against the Denver Broncos, they were missing two main pieces in Cordy Glenn and Marcell Dareus. This week they'll be getting one of those guys back. 

Dareus, who had an ankle injury, will be back in the lineup against Atlanta. He will be joined on the defensive line by Jerel Worthy. Worthy has been out since the preseason with a concussion. The Bills released defensive tackle Deandre Coleman earlier in the week, signifying both guys would be back. 

Glenn will miss his another game with his foot/ankle issue. It's the opposite foot that Glenn battled in training camp. Second round rookie Dion Dawkins will again get the start on Tyrod Taylor's blindside. 

The question at this point is whether Shaq Lawson plays on Sunday. Lawson showed up on the injury report on Thursday, he was limited with a groin injury. Friday, he did not practice and is officially listed as questionable for the game. Lawson has sacks in back to back games against the Broncos and Panthers. If he were to miss the game, Eddie Yarborough and Eddie Davis would likely fill the gap. 

Here's the Bills official injury report:
