Tight end play time with Chandler absent

The Bills did not have Scott Chandler make the trip to Indianapolis in the preseason opener as a precaution with the top tight end coming off ACL surgery in the offseason. Mike Caussin was also out with a hip injury. Here’s how the playing time for those behind him on the depth chart played out Sunday against the Colts.

Chris Gragg – 57 plays
Nick Provo – 32 plays
Lee Smith – 16 plays
Dorin Dickerson – 15 plays

Seeing the rookie Gragg get the most time is not very surprising. He had a pair of receptions for 14 yards in the game, which might not seem like much until you realize that he was asked to run block on 27 plays. Clearly the coaches wanted to get a gauge on his run blocking.
