FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) The unbeaten Atlanta Falcons will be without four starters when they host the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.

Safety Ricardo Allen will miss the game with a concussion sustained on a hard hit to Detroit receiver T.J. Jones last week. Outside linebacker Vic Beasley Jr. (hamstring), right tackle Ryan Schraeder (concussion) and defensive lineman Courtney Upshaw (ankle/knee) will all miss their second straight games with injuries sustained against Green Bay in Week 2.

The Falcons also will be without backup running back Terron Ward (neck/shoulder).

All-Pro receiver Julio Jones was limited all week in practice with a sore back, but he will play against the Bills. He was hurt on the last offensive snap of a 30-26 victory over Detroit.
