The Buffalo Bills have 14 players on their roster that were limited last season due to injuries. A healthy team will give Buffalo the best chance to win.
Last year was a disappointing one for the Buffalo Bills — to say the least — but the Pegulas and players are ready to move on and they’re doing it in a big way.
Now two weeks removed from the NFL Draft, the Buffalo Bills have a new head coach, completely new coaching staff, a new general manager, a new defense, a new offense and a new team motto — Playoff Caliber.
Luckily, the Bills have allowed Sean McDermott to shape his team the way he wants it, brought in a lot of familiar faces to surround him with, brought in players that not only fit his mold, but also have a lot of experience working under the new coaching staff.
With all these players and coaches all coming together, the motto shouldn’t be ‘Playoff Caliber,’ it should be ‘It’s a Small World.’
But this article isn’t about the new players, it’s about the ones we saw last year that sustained an injury that either ended their whole season or parts of it. In total, that list contains 14 players and a majority of them will have valuable roles on the team this year.
To break them up, I’ll group the players into two different groups: Starters and Depth Players. Of the 14, there are eight players that fall under the Starters and six that fall under Depth Players. All of the players were on the roster last season.
In each slide, I will not only list the players, but give a description on the injuries they suffered last season, how they are currently doing and where I project them to be come Week 1 — watch out, Jets.
Without wasting anymore time, let’s dive right into the starters.
