Bills defensive tackle Star Lotulelei will not play against the Buccaneers on Sunday.

Head coach Sean McDermott said on Friday that Lotulelei has been ruled out due to the toe injury that he suffered in Monday night’s loss to the Patriots. Lotulelei had missed three games while on the COVID-19 reserve list before returning to face New England and McDermott said that being in and out of the lineup is hard on the veteran tackle.

“I know he’s frustrated and sometimes you have those seasons where things come up more than other seasons. Not only as an individual but as a team,” McDermott said, via Matt Parrino of NewYorkUpstate.com. “I think some of that’s what he’s dealing with. We just want him to get as healthy as he can as soon as he can.”

McDermott also ruled tight end Tommy Sweeney out with a hip injury.

  1. Beane couldn’t admit he drafted a top 10 pick bust and he brought him up to Buffalo to be even more mediocre.

  2. Bills will need to find a replacement for Lotulelei in next year’s draft. He hasn’t been available nearly enough, and the middle of their defensive line has been blown up by opposition running games all season.

  3. Lotulelei has played well when he’s been on the field.

    The question I have is, after seeing how poorly the Bills defense played without him all last year, how did Beane not acquire any backup 1 Tech?

  4. There probably are a few sore Bills after the Monday night game. Star being out weakens a questionable D-line. That is not what the Bills need with Fournette on deck.
