ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -Bills rookie running back Marshawn Lynch will miss his second consecutive game because of a badly sprained left ankle when Buffalo plays at Jacksonville on Sunday.
Lynch, the Bills' top offensive threat, was ruled out by coach Dick Jauron after he missed his third practice on Friday. He hasn't played since the injury in Buffalo's win over Miami two weeks ago.
Veteran Anthony Thomas started for Lynch in last week's loss to New England, and will likely do the same against the Jaguars (7-3). Rookie Dwayne Wright also will see playing time for Buffalo (5-5).
Lynch has gained 751 yards on the ground and leads all AFC rookies in yards rushing. He has also scored six touchdowns and thrown for another.
