Buffalo Bills' projected roster


Examining the Buffalo Bills' roster:


Big change here, as this projection leaves Thad Lewis off the roster. Through a month's worth of training camp practices and preseason games, Lewis has shown to be erratic as a passer and looks to have fallen behind Tuel in the backup quarterback competition. If Lewis is released, the Bills could scour the waiver wire to find a third quarterback to start learning the system.


No changes here. Barring an injury, this group appears set.


No changes here. Still no spot for Evan Rodriguez.


No changes here. Injuries to Watkins and Goodwin bear watching but still don't open an extra spot for T.J. Graham.


With Moeaki still hobbled by a hamstring injury, Gragg is added to this projection. We could see this one going a number of ways. Moeaki's health is the hinge point.


No changes here. Urbik and Pears played the entire first half Saturday and should hold onto their starting jobs after some questions earlier in camp. It's not known what Henderson's role will be once Glenn returns, but he could make for an ideal swing tackle.


Despite signing a three-year extension in December, Alan Branch's days in Buffalo could be numbered. This projection leaves him off the roster and gives the last spot to Corbin Bryant, who was the first backup defensive tackle on the field Saturday. Landon Cohen is another candidate.


We'll swap out Jimmy Gaines for Sylvester, who will fill Bradham's place on the roster for Week 1.


No changes here. Still no McKelvin in game action this preseason, so going six deep here makes sense.


No changes here. The coaching staff has given Duke Williams a chance to push Searcy for a starting role, but for right now, Searcy remains in that spot.


No changes here. Dustin Hopkins' groin injury puts a dent in his bid to make it as a kickoff specialist.
