Kraig Urbik vs. Doug Legursky
When the coaching staff decided to move Seantrel Henderson to right tackle and bumped Erik Pears inside to right guard, this forced Kraig Urbik down the depth chart. It now seems that last year's starter could be fighting for a roster spot on the 53-man roster as the preseason comes to a close.
There are two reasons to believe Urbik may be further down the depth chart than he would've hoped: 1) With starter Chris Williams out due to injury, the team turned to rookie Cyril Richardson at left guard and not Urbik, and 2) when Urbik did enter the game last Saturday, he did so at center and not guard, which makes you wonder if the coaching staff is seeing if he can handle the duties as the team's backup center/guard.
Brian Moorman vs. Jordan Gay
On Monday, it was almost a certainty that Brian Moorman would be the team's punter this regular season considering they had cut his only challenger, Jake Dombrowski. That all changed on Tuesday when the Bills claimed and were awarded Jordan Gay from the Carolina Panthers, according to Joe Buscaglia of WGR 550.
This really shouldn't be a surprise considering Moorman hasn't performed well this preseason, showing very little power on his punts. According to NFL.com, Moorman has averaged only 41.3 yards per punt, which currently ranks 33rd in the NFL. Unfortunately, Gay isn't any better with his 35.3 yards per punt average, which ranks 44th in the NFL.
The former Panthers punter has a huge challenge ahead of him with only one game to unseat the veteran, and I don't necessarily see that happening. The bigger story, though, is that the coaching staff must have some serious concerns when it comes to this position if it feels the need to make a move this late in the preseason.
Bills' X-Factor of the Week: Bryce Brown
The Bills may hold back their top two running backs, C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson, to ensure they are fresh entering the regular season. This means that the Detroit Lions could be in store for a heavy dose of Bryce Brown.
Over the course of four games, Brown has 26 carries for 140 yards as well as six receptions for 52 yards. If Brown is able to have a strong performance, he might earn himself a few more touches once the regular season rolls around.
