Offensive snaps: Stevie Johnson hobbled

By Mike Rodak

NEW ORLEANS -- A look at snaps played by Buffalo Bills skill-position players in Sunday's loss to the New Orleans Saints, while analyzing how the totals reflect the way players were utilized (totals provided by the NFL):

QB Thad Lewis -- 71 of 71
WR Robert Woods -- 67 of 71
TE Scott Chandler -- 53 of 71
RB Fred Jackson -- 51 of 71
WR T.J. Graham -- 50 of 71
WR Steve Johnson -- 47 of 71
WR Marquise Goodwin -- 33 of 71
RB Tashard Choice -- 19 of 71
FB Frank Summers -- 13 of 71
TE Lee Smith -- 11 of 71
TE Chris Gragg -- 5 of 71
WR Chris Hogan -- 4 of 71
WR Marcus Easley -- 2 of 71
RB Ronnie Wingo -- 0 of 71

ANALYSIS: Johnson had an apparent groin injury, limiting him to just 66 percent of the offensive snaps. He led the Bills in the first half with four catches for 42 yards and a touchdown, so not having him at full strength hurt the Bills in the second half. ... Goodwin played nearly 50 percent of snaps and is emerging as a big-play threat. His 26-yard catch was the Bills' longest play of the game. Goodwin was carted off late in the game with an elbow injury and his status is unclear. ... Even with C.J. Spiller inactive, the Bills hardly upped the workload for Choice. He provided a burst on a 20-yard run in the second quarter but was used sparingly after that as the Bills were playing from behind. Choice as also banged-up in the fourth quarter. ... For playing 70 percent of offensive snaps, the Bills didn't get a tremendous amount of production (two catches for 19 yards) from Graham. He's been one of the more underwhelming Bills performers this season.
