Buffalo Bills receiver Stevie Johnson is inactive with a back injury against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.

It ends the second-longest active starting streak among NFL receivers at 48 games. Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald has started 50 games.

Johnson injured his back in Buffalo's 37-24 loss to Cleveland on Oct. 3.

Pro Bowl safety Jairus Byrd (plantar fasciitis) and cornerback Stephon Gilmore (broken left hand) will both make their season debuts for the Bills.

For Cincinnati, cornerback Leon Hall returns after missing two games with a hamstring injury. Defensive end Michael Johnson also returns after missing last week's game with a concussion.
