MIAMI -- From the press box at soggy Dolphin Stadium, the most significant update from the inactive list is that run-stopping nose tackle Jason Ferguson will play against the Buffalo Bills.

Ferguson didn't practice until Friday because of an oblique injury that sidelined him in the first quarter of last Sunday's loss to the Baltimore Ravens, who gained 140 yards on them.

Dolphins receiver Ernest Wilford is inactive for the fourth time despite his four-year, $13 million contract with $6 million guaranteed. He has one catch this season.

As expected, Bills cornerback Terrence McGee is back after missing two games with a sprained knee and is listed as a starter. Starting center Melvin Fowler also will play after missing last week with an elbow injury.

Also for the Bills, right guard Brad Butler, defensive end Aaron Schobel and cornerback Ashton Youboty are the notable scratches.

Jason Whittle will start for Butler, while Ryan Denney will fill in for Schobel.
