The Buffalo Bills are finally back in action on the playing field this Thursday night. Before we get there, we answer some of your burning training camp and preseason questions here on Rumblings Q&A.

This week, we discuss Cody Ford’s move to guard, Robert Foster falling down the depth chart, Lee Smith’s quiet camp, the kicker competition, potential free agents Buffalo may add this August, and delve into LeSean McCoy’s roster status. We also look at the team’s Wall of Fame now that the Bills announced there won’t be an addition in 2019.

Question of the week

“Will LeSean McCoy really get cut?”

The simple answer is no. The top three running backs have been very clear at training camp. LeSean McCoy, Frank Gore, and Devin Singletary have all received so many more carries than T.J. Yeldon and Marcus Murphy. It’s one thing to be a surprise cut, but when it’s been so clear at camp I find it hard to believe he could really be cut.

The longer this goes, the less likely it is to happen. If Buffalo were to release McCoy, they would prefer to do it early so he can latch on with a new team. That window is rapidly closing.

All things considered, I still think McCoy will get the first designed rushing attempt of 2019.
