Shane Ray

The Buffalo Bills might go into this game without their Top 3 pass rushers with Von Miller still on the PUP list and the coaching staff electing to hold out Greg Rousseau and Leonard Floyd. This shouldn't be too much of an issue as the Bills still have great depth with players like A.J. Epenesa, Boogie Basham and Shaq Lawson.

However, the one player that the coaching staff should have on the field for a majority of the snaps in this game is Shane Ray. He is a former first round pick but hasn't played in an NFL game since the 2018 season.

He was a bit of a surprise earlier this offseason after working out for the Bills and showing enough to earn a one-year contract. Ray's career was derailed by injuries but he looks to be past those and building off a productive season in the CFL.

Shane Ray has looked good through training camp and the coaching staff should give him plenty of snaps to show that can translate to an NFL game after not playing in a regular season game for four seasons.
