Seymour stands a good chance of starting at cornerback for Buffalo's upcoming game in Oakland, The Buffalo News reports. "It's a big step," said the rookie from USC. "Big responsibility, filling in for Darby and being that corner the team is relying on. I'm excited for it."

Regular starter Ronald Darby has a concussion and hasn't even started practicing again, while normal backup Corey White may be needed in more of a utility role. Hence, Seymour appears likely to see the field quite a bit, and he could accrue a few tackles along the way against Oakland's passing-friendly attack.
