Three players to watch in the Green Bay Packers’ pre-season game against the Buffalo Bills.
The Green Bay Packers will wrap up their preseason on Saturday afternoon when they visit the Buffalo Bills.
If the first two games go well, we won’t see many Packers starters against the Bills. Instead, expect to see players in the roster bubble aiming for a spot in the 53-player roster.
Here are three Packers to watch against the Bills.
Love is not in the roster bubble, but this could be his last chance to play live this season, barring an injury to Aaron Rodgers.
Assuming Love has fully recovered from the shoulder injury that kept him out last week, this will be a good test for him. against the Bills’ starting defense.
A year from now, Love could be the QB1 ready to make his first regular season start. These representatives will all help in its development.
De’Vondre Campbell, Krys Barnes, Oren Burks and Ty Summers will all likely be on the Packers’ initial 53-player roster. Can rookie Isaiah McDuffie force the Packers to retain a fifth inside linebacker?
Green Bay could decide to keep McDuffie anyway as he was a draft pick, but that’s far from a guarantee.
Josh Allen and the Bills starters will be in this game, so McDuffie will have a huge test and a great opportunity to show what he can do.
Yosh Nijman has been impressive this summer and could potentially secure a spot ahead of Dennis Kelly in tackle. According to Bill Huber of Sports Illustrated, Nijman allowed just one press on 55 snaps protecting the preseason passes. You can’t ask for much more than that.
Nijman has come a long way and has shown significant improvements to his game, and that might be enough to make it to the 53-player roster.
Hopefully he can end the preseason strong. With a strong performance against the Bills’ starting pass rushers, he has the potential to do enough to earn a spot on the roster.
