The Buffalo Bills only have two more practices at St. John Fisher University before they close that part of training camp and return to Orchard Park for the final preparations before the 2023 season. This will include three preseason games, with the first one being on Saturday against the Indianapolis Colts.
Entering training camp, there was a number of players who seemed to be on the roster bubble and fighting for a spot on the 53-man roster. However, these three players should feel much better about their chances at this point and should be locks to make the regular season roster.
3 Buffalo Bills who are now locks for the 53-man roster
The Buffalo Bills signed Latavius Murray after the 2023 NFL Draft and it seemed like he was a long shot to make the 53-man roster with James Cook, Damien Harris, and Nyhiem Hines already on the team. However, Hines suffered a season ending knee injury before training camp and Murray should now be on the roster as that third running back.
The fact that Latavius Murray is a roster lock is not just because of the loss of Hines but the fact that the veteran has done good things so far through training camp, according to Matt Parrino. He is a big running back that can run between the tackles but also has pass catching ability out of the backfield.
The Buffalo Bills have historically had only two running backs active on game day but Latavius Murray presence might change that and the offense could have three running backs rotating through the backfield.
