INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) — Buffalo Bills running back Leonard Fournette was elevated from the practice squad and activated for Saturday night's game against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Fournette was active for the first time this season. The 28-year-old veteran was set to back up James Cook and Latavius Murray with Ty Johnson inactive due to a shoulder injury.

Buffalo safety Micah Hyde (neck) and defensive end A.J. Epensesa (rib) were inactive. Offensive linemen Germain Ifedi and Alec Anderson were healthy scratches.

Los Angeles wide receiver Keenan Allen missed his second straight game and defensive back Deane Leonard his fourth consecutive, both due to heel injuries.

The Chargers' other inactive players were quarterback Max Duggan, safety JT Woods and tight end Donald Parham Jr.
