The Buffalo Bills are in the middle of the 2021 preseason, having had no preseason games a year ago.
The Bills faced the Chicago Bears on Saturday afternoon at Soldier Field and again, many starters missed the field, including quarterback Josh Allen and star receiver Stefon Diggs.
There are players who impress in the camp’s two practices and the first two preseason games, but three players have plenty of Bills fans talking.
One is rookie rusher Gregory Rousseau, who suffered a sack against the Detroit Lions last weekend and against the Bears he put pressure on Bears quarterback Andy Dalton.
Rousseau is considered a very talented edge rusher with ridiculous measurements and length, but his inexperience in playing the position (how long he’s been playing it), including withdrawal from the 2020 college football season, has meant that many saw it as a project of sorts.
But it’s clear that Rousseau has what it takes to be a great on-board rusher. Can he reproduce that in the regular season? That’s the question.
Another is third-year running back Devin Singletary.
Singletary ran 14 yards for a touchdown to cap the Bills’ first practice and he looked sharp on the other runs he had had in the first quarter. It looks like Singletary is motivated by the talks over free running back Matt Breida and second-year running back Zack Moss.
Finally, alternate quarterback Mitch Trubisky looked extremely impressive in his second game for the Bills.
Against his former team, Trubisky really only had one bad patch and it was more about miscommunication with wide receiver Jake Kumerow.
Trubisky looked confident and passed all over the field, mainly to wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie. He closed the second practice with a touchdown pass to Kumerow. Trubisky was 12-17 for 113 yards and a touchdown on his first two shots.
The early heats of the preseason game against the Bears showed the Bills have great depth and if called upon, players such as Trubisky, Kumerow, McKenzie and Singletary can carry the load if injuries bite the Bills’ lineup. .
