4 biggest questions for the Buffalo Bills entering preseason games
Training camp at St. John Fisher University will be ending this week as the Buffalo Bills move back to Orchard Park to finish their preparation for the 2022 season. This weekend also is the beginning of the Bills’ three-week preseason schedule with the first game against the Indianapolis Colts on Saturday afternoon.
During training camp, some questions have seemingly been answered, like Isaiah McKenzie emerging as the player to replace Cole Beasley. However, there are still questions left outstanding that have not been answered yet, along with some that have emerged during training camp.
What are the biggest questions for the Buffalo Bills entering preseason games?
How much will the starters play in the preseason?
One of the biggest questions for the Buffalo Bills entering the preseason is how much the starters will play. On Monday, head coach Sean McDermott said this is something that is still being discussed and nothing has been finalized yet, according to ESPN’s Alaina Getzenberg.
The Bills coaching staff will have to find a balance between getting their team ready for the regular season but also protecting their key players from unnecessary hits and opening them up to injuries.
For the defense, while they have added players like Von Miller and Kaiir Elam, a majority of the players have been in the same scheme for a number of years and they may not need time in preseason to get on the same page.
However, on offense it might be a little more pressing just due to the fact that they have a new offensive coordinator in Ken Dorsey. It may be worth having him call plays for Josh Allen but this is not something that needs to be extensive and could be achieved in probably one quarter.
