Bills' Frank Gore: Coach affirms role
Coach Sean McDermott stated Wednesday that Gore remains the team's top running back on the depth chart, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports. "Frank Gore and then we bring in Devin [Singletary] and then we bring in TJ [Yeldon]," McDermott said, when asked about the team's starting running back.
Gore better get going if he wants to keep that spot, as he rushed 11 times for just 20 yards in the Week 1 win over the Jets, while the flashy rookie Singletary carried four times for 70 yards. The 36-year-old hasn't scored a rushing touchdown since Week 12 of the 2017 season despite relatively good health. Singletary is clearly the back to own in this offense, and it may only be a matter of time before McDermott changes his tune in his pressers. For now at least, there's modest value for Gore if he can somehow keep getting 10-to-15 carries in an offense that looks like it will move the ball better than last season. Even with the "starter" designation, Gore still only saw 28 percent of the offensive snaps in the season opener.
