One player that Bills’ fans haven’t had a chance to see yet this season is wide receiver Isaiah Hodgins. The sixth-round pick started the year on injured reserve due to a shoulder injury but was designated to return this week, according to the NFL transaction wire as tweeted by Albert Breer.
Hodgins was actually the second wide receiver the Buffalo Bills drafted earlier this year. He is a big wide receiver at 6’3″ and 210 pounds but doesn’t have that great speed to get past defenses. However, could be a great weapon in the red zone for Josh Allen out of the slot.
The fact that Hodgins made the active roster at the start of the year means the team could not move him to the practice squad. For that reason, Hodgins seems like the likely choice for that final spot, if they do activate him off injured reserve, but the Bills already have six wide receivers on the active roster.
For that reason, the team could create another spot if they activate Hodgins but with the increase in four-wide receiver sets, the team could see value in having that extra receiver on the roster.
