Reserve cornerbacks Brandon Burton and Johnny Adams have not seen much of the field on defense this season. Even after the loss of Leodis McKelvin to a hamstring injury, Buffalo shuffled the secondary instead of putting Burton or Adams on the field. Head coach Doug Marrone indicated Burton and Adams could see playing time this Sunday against Baltimore if all goes well during the practice week.
“This week we’re going to find out,” said Marrone Monday. “We’re going to put them out there. We’re going to take a look at it. We definitely feel comfortable about being able to put them out there. When you get out there and you start practicing and the bullets are flying we’ll see how they perform in those situations.
“If they perform well then that’s great for us and it gives us a great opportunity. And that’s what we’re expecting and looking forward to.”
Burton has appeared in 17 NFL games in his career, but has been mostly a special teams player in his three NFL seasons. Adams is an undrafted rookie, who has seen a total of 23 snaps on special teams for the Bills the past two games.
