Tyrel Dodson to IR

Recommended Posts

Man, injuries are so bad this year. This is unfortunate as the loss of Milano and Smoke, in particular, really negatively impact this team.

I think this makes the Bills/Jets a toss up. I wonder what the line is.

Put Duke in at Tight End!

 

If he plays he will certainly be taking some of the routes TEs normally run.

The TE thing does? None of those guys were going to play anyway... not sure it moves the line at all? Or you mean the Dodson to IR? He was already declared out of the game yesterday...

I posited a few weeks ago that the Bills should elevate some of the bruisers off the PS for this game-- this Greggo defense is going to be looking to hurt people. Duke Williams has unfortunately become something of a polarizing figure on this site, with some folks jumping at any opportunity to bash him. But he is definitely going to meet defenders head-on. He has a knack for contested catches, isn't going to get pushed around, has great YAC ability, and is a decent blocker who may elevate our running game. I hope he is active, and gets an opportunity to make plays.

least year I found myself believing the S&C training staff had found some secret sauce.  I guess it was just luck, or covid has reduced what they are able to do.

I like the elevation of Duke for this game because he’s a better option than Andre Roberts in the passing game and he did pretty well vs the jets in the second matchup last year

Pretty sure Duke will be active no matter what since he was part of the weekly practice squad call up group.

 

Either way he brings juice and size to the offense and I still think he can be a weapon despite the lack of ideal NFL speed/separation. Daboll seems to have an unhealthy infatuation with McKenzie and the Jet sweep though so wouldn't be surprised if he runs even more to keep Duke's snaps at a minimum.

You're not concerned about depth on the bench?

 

I have to admit I don't have TE depth chart.

while it is an exaggeration to call tomorrow’s game a toss up, the line has narrowed a bit from -13 to -10.5. but that could be because of either the TE covid scare or Darnold being available. i agree Dodson news didn’t affect the line.

Duke can run some TE route.  Devey provides a big body back up.

I agree. I don't think he will line up at TE but he should be a good blocker on the outside.
