Toronto, Ontario - It is game four, of the Buffalo Bills eight-game foray to theGreat White North. Thursday night in Toronto, the Bills playthe AFC Champion Indianapolis Colts in the second preseason gamefor each team.
And since it's the fourth game of the Toronto series, and sincethis is News 4 Buffalo, we've identified four Buffalo Bills to keepan eye on tonight.
1. QB Brian Brohm He'll get extended action tonightagainst the Colts, about the same playing time Ryan Fitzpatrick gotlast week against the Redskins. And it's Brohm's first goodchance to demonstrate that he should be the team's #2 QB, and maybechallenge for number one. Brohm says he's much morecomfortable now than he was late last year, when he got his firststart against Atlanta. The Bills like his size anddurability. They want to see him be accurate with his passesand demonstrate a command of the offense. If he looks good,he may get a chance to challenge Trent Edwards for the startingjob.
2. WR Donald Jones Rookiefree agent from Youngstown State had a good debut against theSkins, now the Bills are looking to see more. With injuries toJames Hardy, Marcus Easley, and now David Nelson, there's a chancefor Jones to show that he might be a viable candidate for the 4thor 5th WR spot. He'll need to show some special teams prowessto bolster his chances.
3. FS Cary Harris Billscoaches have been praising his play in the Redskins game,particularly his willingness to mix it up physically despite hissmall stature. A 6th round draft pick a year ago fromUSC, Harris seems much more comfortable at safety than he was atCB. And with injuries to Jon Corto, and now Jairus Byrd,there are valuable snaps to be had at the safety spot. Again,special teams work is key to his chance of making the roster.
4. LB Arthur Moats Buffalo's 6thround pick this year had a rough debut in Washington lastweek. He needs to count on the patience of the coaching staffas he makes his transition from small college DE (James MadisonUniversity) to NFL LB. He will likely benefit tonight fromtaking fewer reps than he did a week ago, with the return of LBsPaul Posluszny and Chris Kelsay to the lineup.
