These are four positions that the Buffalo Bills should be concerned if the starter misses extended time.
There is no question that this roster the Buffalo Bills have constructed is one of the best they have had in probably 25 years. They brought back a majority of their starters from last year and were able to add more talent at wide receiver (Stefon Diggs) and the defensive line (Mario Addison, Quinton Jefferson, Vernon Butler, and A.J. Epenesa).
However, this roster is not perfect and there are a few positions that could become concerns if the starter misses time this coming season. These are the four positions the Buffalo Bills should be the most concerned.
The Buffalo Bills have great depth across their entire offensive line with players like Ryan Bates, Daryl Williams, Ike Boettger, and Ty Nsekhe who can play multiple positions. The concern for the center position though is that none of the backups have extensive playing time at center.
This is a bit of a risk considering Mitch Morse‘s injury history and while he did play all 16 games last year, he missed time during training camp last season. He also missed 15 games in the two years prior to joining the Buffalo Bills.
The depth concern doesn’t become as much of an issue once Jon Feliciano returns from his injury, which is expected around Week 5 or Week 6, since he can step in there. However, the Buffalo Bills are also looking at additional veterans and reportedly will have Jonotthan Harrison in for a visit.
