Rep Counter: Charting Bills' First-Teamers Through Preseason

New, comments

Over the past few days, I've had several requests from readers to update the number of reps the Buffalo Bills have played throughout the preseason offensively and defensively. I plan to compile this data more thoroughly during the regular season; for now, I can only offer stats for the first team offense and defense, and the offensive data doesn't include the preseason opener against Washington (which I've unfortunately already deleted from the DVR).

As you might be able to guess, injuries have led to a lot of different players seeing action with the first team; this is particularly true defensively, as five of the Bills' 11 projected starters (Kyle Williams, Chris Kelsay, Paul Posluszny, Reggie Torbor, Jairus Byrd) have missed extended action. Rotating players on both sides of the ball also leads to a larger number of participants. Good, old-fashioned substitutions and the occasional unique personnel package allowed a few guys to sneak reps in, as well.

After the jump, you'll find first-team defensive data from all three preseason matchups, and offensive data from the Indianapolis and Cincinnati games. With both units unlikely to see extended playing time in the preseason finale this Thursday, this will be the last time we chart reps this preseason - and it's the last time the data will be this limited, as well, as we'll be charting formations, yardage gained/allowed, penalty yardage, opponent formations and more once the regular season starts.
