CB snap counts show tight race

Posted by Chris Brown on August 29, 2013 – 4:06 pm

Looking at the snap counts among Buffalo’s cornerbacks it’s hard to discern any notable edge that the chief combatants for Stephon Gilmore’s vacant might have heading into the final preseason game tonight.

Both Crezdon Butler and Justin Rogers have missed preseason games, with Rogers missing each of the first two. Butler just missed the Minnesota game. But heading into the preseason finale tonight their snap counts on defense are pretty even (56 to 49). Rogers got a ton of work in the Washington game with 49 snaps on defense. Butler got about half of that (26) last week.
