The Buffalo Bills will kickoff the 2019 preseason schedule on Thursday at 7 pm against the Indianapolis Colts. Head coach Sean McDermott says the starters are expected to play for roughly a quarter. Outside of the starters, here are five players to watch for the Bills first preseason game.
The rookie running back has been making a splash in training camp with his ability to cut in between tackles and quickly burst upfield. In a backfield with veterans like LeSean McCoy and Frank Gore, Singletary is primed to get plenty of action during the first week of the preseason.
“Everything is going to hit quicker. Guys are moving faster, guys are bigger. I feel I’m adjusting well,” Singletary said. “I’m very confident. I believe in myself. And I’ve got great guys around me to guide me in the right direction. I feel like I’m doing well so far.”
The Buffalo Bills are back at New Era Field, hosting the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday night in the preseason opener. There are plenty of story lines for the Bills, and you can find updates on Ed Oliver, Josh Allen, Devin Singletary, LeSean McCoy and much more as part of today’s links.
