Fairburn: Singletary officially out this week

Unfortunate.  No such thing as a gimmie game in the NFL, esp if you are the Bills.  The 49ers crushed the Bengals with a running attack, mostly off tackle, Singletary wil be sorely missed imo.

If the team is any good it shouldn’t impact them that much. They should be able to build a successful offensive game plan without him and the defense should be able to take care of their end especially at home. Whether they do or not is the question but there is a reason the Vegas line hasn’t moved. Typically the only injury that moves the line is QB.

I like what he can do as a pass-catcher, seems to be pretty good at finding ways to get open. Former second-round pick, I thought he'd be a tad more productive than he has been but he's another 'Bama RB that had the benefit of a monster OL in front of him.

I think he’ll have a solid game this week. I’m going to guess at least 70 combined yards and more than 5 receptions.

Good as we need him badly for the NE game, so would rather rest him and see if he can be 100% next week than rush him back and have him aggravate it again.

Considering the Bengals LBs are slow af, Yeldon may be enough. Hell, Gore may be enough. We shall see.

Rest him as long as it takes - even if he misses New England. We want him ready for the rest of the season - and PLAYOFFS!!

Rest him against the pats as well. The eye test tells me the Bills aren’t ready to beat them no matter what, so there’s no need to bring him back too soon for that game.

Let him heal up, don't rush back from something like a hammy or else it could turn into a season-long thing that slows him down. Credit to the team's medical staff, as well. Doesn't appear they're in the business of rushing players through a half-assed rehab process just to get them on the field. Seems like they're very well-organized in terms of rehab plans and timelines for returns. Knox missed most of camp with a hammy, came back ready for the season, and the injury doesn't seem to be affecting him at all. I'd rather have a full-go #26 for the Pats than an injured one for the Bengals.

 

I might be in the minority here, but I'm interested to see what Yeldon can do.

 

Good pass catcher. Unfortunately I was hoping for singletary to play.

 

Watching the Cin v 9ers game,  Cin defense was really exploited by speed to the edge and elusiveness outside all game. 

 

I’d suggest this exact injury is a case why I wished  McCoy would have been kept over Yeldon, but it’s time to move on....

Hate to admit I was kind of thinking the same.

Does Byron Marshall get a call up from the practice squad ??

 

 

They would need to cut someone to do so and keep him there for 3 weeks so I doubt it. McD indicated earlier in the week that they would not need to make a move.

Wonder if any of the WRs on the roster can play RB, like Maybe Roberts can  do a Ty Montgomery impression, if he’s ready to play... 

 

Im sure we’ll see some jet sweeps with McKenzie if we feel we can attack the edge with speed.

Me too.  I really want him back for @TEN, which feels like a game that could go either way.

Bummer about Singletary.

I fear we won't see him until after the bye week.
 

That's cool too. I'd rather have him healthy for playoff run. Yeldon will suffice in the interim

Yeah that’s there too. I wonder why they don’t jets sweep Foster or Brown.  They’re the fastest right?

Mariota is another QB I think our guy is passing or has passed. He’s looked aweful.
