Bills Head Coach Sean McDermott addressed the media Wednesday morning ahead of Sunday’s opener against the Baltimore Ravens.
McDermott talked about running back LeSean McCoy and his importance to the team, “he’s developing,
I’ve watched him since he was younger, like I’ve said before to now, I appreciate his leadership within our team, he’s got a good grasp of our offense, he’s playing fast, he looks like he’s in better shape even than he was in even a year ago, so I think he’s off to a really fine start.”
Coach McDermott also discussed the Ravens running game and how difficult a challenge it will be to face, “I know they are a physical football team, Coach Harbaugh preaches that, we have a lot of respect for what they do and how they do it, we work hard on fitting the run and then we also have to be ready for Lamar Jackson when he comes on the field, we’ve worked hard on that this week, so there’s different elements to their run game and Greg Roman being there, was here and the different run game he utilized here, so we’ve researched that, and it’s a tough challenge.”
McDermott was asked several questions about the new look offensive line and the confidence he has in them.
He said, “they’ll be ready to go, just like our whole team with respect to make sure we’re ready to go, there’s a lot of different looks that the Ravens defense presents, different fronts, different looks with the disguise behind the fronts, so we’re hard at work trying to get a good understanding of what that is, and how we have to play off of that.”
He said wide receiver Ray-Ray McCloud will not practice Wednesday and linebacker Julian Stanford will be limited.
