RB snaps have favored Brown, Choice

Posted by Chris Brown on August 29, 2013 – 5:16 pm

The battle for the third running back spot on Buffalo’s roster has been tight. Tashard Choice is widely seen with the edge going into tonight’s preseason finale, but Kendall Gaskins and Zach Brown are in close pursuit. Here’s a look at how the reps through the three preseason games have played out, knowing Brown and Gaskins figure to get a big dose of work tonight.

Gaskins, who has the fewest offensive snaps to this point, is hoping extra snaps will allow him to get into the flow of the game more effectively.

“(With more work) the coaches will be able to see a lot more rather than just a short period of time,” Gaskins told Buffalobills.com. “I have to be able to get into the rhythm of the game the whole time. So I’ll be able to show more than what I’ve shown before.”
