Receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey and tight end Kevin Boss are somewhat surprising inactives for the Raiders today against the Buffalo Bills. Heyward-Bey tweaked his left knee at practice on Thursday and Boss, who suffered an injury to his left knee in Oakland's exhibition at the 49ers on Aug. 20, thought he would be ready to go all week long.

The rest of the Raiders inactives: the injured trio of safety Mike Mitchell (knee) and receivers Jacoby Ford (hamstring) and Louis Murphy (groin). Tackle Stephon Heyer, who suffered a knee injury on Thursday, is also inactive.

Rookie tight end David Ausberry is the final inactive player for the Raiders.
