ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -Bills rookie running back Marshawn Lynch missed his third straight practice on Friday and is doubtful for Buffalo's game Sunday night against unbeaten New England.
Lynch, the Bills top offensive threat, sustained a serious left ankle sprain in Buffalo's 13-10 win over Miami on Sunday. Rookie Dwayne Wright and veteran Anthony Thomas will likely split the running back duties.
Lynch ranks fifth in the league with 751 yards, and needs four more carries to become the team's first rookie back to post 200 rushes since Travis Henry had 213 in 2001.
The Bills (5-4) have won four straight and five of six heading into the game against the NFL-leading Patriots (9-0).
