Dolphins-Bills Preview

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -- Bills rookie running back Marshawn Lynch played for the first time in four weeks in Buffalo's game against winless Miami on Sunday.

Lynch missed the previous three games after seriously spraining his left ankle against the Dolphins on Nov. 11. The Bills' top offensive threat, Lynch leads the team with six touchdowns rushing and, with another passing, has had a hand in seven of 13 TDs the offense has produced this season. He has 751 yards rushing, which still ranks 15th in the NFL.

Bills starting defensive end Chris Kelsay missed his second straight game with a foot injury.

Miami, meanwhile, was without its top running back, Jesse Chatman. Chatman is nursing an ankle injury sustained in Miami's loss to the Jets last week. He rushed for a season-high 124 yards against the Bills in the first meeting between the teams.

Receiver Marty Booker also was inactive because of a knee injury. Booker is the Dolphins' second-leading receiver with 38 catches for 430 yards and a touchdown.

The losses depleted an already sputtering Miami offense that hasn't scored a touchdown the last three games.

Samkon Gado made his seventh career start in place of Chatman, while Derek Hagan replaced Booker.

Starting middle linebacker Channing Crowder, Miami's leading tackler, didn't play because of a foot injury, replaced by Donnie Spragan.
