On the latest episode of the Billieve Podcast, host John Boccacino and co-host Jamie D’Amico take a look at how the loss of starting right guard Jon Feliciano will impact the offense in 2020.

The Buffalo Bills were counting on returning their entire starting offensive line from 2019, but that all changed when Feliciano tore his pectoral muscle while working out. Our podcasters discuss Feliciano’s injury, how long he will be sidelined (Feliciano is targeting Buffalo’s Week 4 game at the Las Vegas Raiders for his return while this type of injury can take anywhere from three to four months to fully recover).

We run through Buffalo’s in-house replacement options: Between Darryl Williams, Evan Boehm, Cody Ford and Spencer Long, who will step up and assume the starting right guard spot in 2020? Is now the time to switch Ford from right tackle to right guard? Can Williams return to his Second-Team All-Pro form from 2017?

Plus, we address how the loss of nose tackle Star Lotulelei is a huge blow to assistant head coach / defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier’s defense; speculate on whether the NFL should delay the start of its season until late December; run down which Bills have been placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list, discuss cornerback E.J. Gaines’ decision to opt out of the season, and much more!
