Right cornerback battle still up in the air for Buffalo Bills

Saturday’s preseason game still hasn’t settled the most intriguing position battle

The Buffalo Bills are still undecided as to who is going to start the season as the primary cornerback on the right side of the defense. With rookie Tre’Davious White locking down the left side of the field, the battle on the right is between Shareece Wright, Kevon Seymour, and EJ Gaines.

Wright started Saturday's preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens and played the majority of the first half. Wright performed well for the most part. There was one time in particular that Ravens wide receiver Mike Wallace burned Wright but quarterback Ryan Mallet could not connect with his receiver.

Gaines played during the second half primarily and played well enough to keep the competition going into another week of practice before the final preseason game. Head coach Sean McDermott was excited about the level of competition at the position.

“There was really good competition,” said McDermott Sunday. “The thing you love about it is, just like the game, the guys battled all game long. Third game in a row that they battled all game long.”

Seymour was unable to play due to a shoulder injury. That certainty didn’t help his chances and it seems to be a two-man race heading down to the wire before the regular season.
