The Patriots ruled starting left tackle Isaiah Wynn for their playoff game against the Buffalo Bills.

Wynn, who has started 15 games and played in 82% of snaps this season, is struggling with both hip and ankle injuries and missed practice Wednesday and Thursday.

In his absence, Justin Herron could see a significant role. It’s also possible the Patriots could slide Trent Brown to left tackle and place Mike Onwenu at right tackle, according to ESPN’s Mike Reiss.

Cornerbacks Jalen Mills and Shaun Wade are still on the reserve/COVID-19 roster.

Center David Andrews (shoulder), defensive lineman Christian Barmore (knee), linebacker Jamie Collins (ankle), defensive back Cody Davis (wrist), defensive back Kyle Dugger (hand), kicker Nick Folk (left knee), fielder defensive line Lawrence Guy (shoulder), running back Damien Harris (hamstring), linebacker Dont’a Hightower (knee), linebacker Brandon King (toe), wide receiver Jakobi Meyers (thigh) and safety Adrian Phillips (knee) are all listed as questionable as of Thursday.

The Bills did not list any players in their final injury report.

On Friday, the Patriots elevated cornerback De’Vante Bausby, defensive lineman Daniel Ekuale, defensive back D’Angelo Ross and wide receiver Kristian Wilkerson from the practice squad to the active roster.

Kickoff is scheduled for 8:15 p.m. in Buffalo.
