Moss recently had a cast removed from his surgically repaired ankle, Matthew Fairburn of The Athletic reports.
Moss injured his ankle in the wild-card round of the playoffs and had surgery in mid-January to repair a ruptured tendon. He should complete his rehab before training camp, but his medical history is already a concern, with Moss mentioning that he's played through a slew of injuries since the start of his collegiate career. There's also the possibility of Buffalo adding backfield competition this offseason, as neither Moss nor Devin Singletary was impressive in 2020.
Moss underwent a minor "tight rope" surgery on his ankle Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
This procedure realigns the ankle to its original position and should help Moss make a full recovery by the beginning of the offseason program. Moss finished the regular season with 112 carries for 481 yards (4.3 YPC) and four touchdowns, adding 14 receptions (18 targets) for 95 yards and a score. The rookie was in a timeshare with Devin Singletary by the end of the year. Singletary, who logged an 84 percent snap share in the divisional-round win over the Ravens, will lead the backfield for the remainder of the Bills' postseason run.
Moss (ankle) was moved to injured reserve Tuesday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
Moss was already deemed out for the season after suffering an ugly ankle injury during Saturday's win over the Colts. In playoff formats that requires an official IR designation before a player can be replaced, Moss is now eligible to be swapped out.
Moss (ankle) will miss the remainder of the playoffs, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
The rookie third-round pick injured his ankle in the fourth quarter of Saturday's 27-24 win over the Colts, taking 11 touches for 47 yards before his departure. Devin Singletary worked in a three-down role when Moss missed three games earlier in the season, averaging 14 carries and four targets on 89, 89 and 63 percent of snaps in Weeks 3-5. The second-year pro figures to handle a large role again, but the Bills could also turn to T.J. Yeldon for some backfield snaps. Either way, the offense will live and die with QB Josh Allen.
Moss is slated to miss time due to the ankle injury he suffered during Saturday's 27-24 wild-card win over the Colts, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
Prior to his departure early in the fourth quarter, Moss managed 47 yards from scrimmage on 11 touches, both of which ended up leading Bills running backs. There's worry from the team that he'll be out for the remainder of the playoffs, a scenario that would mean Devin Singletary leads the backfield moving forward.
Moss left Saturday's wild-card game against the Colts due to an ankle injury.
After the second play of the fourth quarter, Moss required a cart to get off the field and quickly was deemed doubtful to return. Considering the designation, he likely will end his day with seven carries for 21 yards and four catches (on four targets) for 26 yards. With T.J. Yeldon a healthy scratch Saturday, the Bills backfield has been whittled down to Devin Singletary and Taiwan Jones.
Moss rushed three times for eight yards and caught his only target for 13 yards in Sunday's 56-26 win over Miami.
Moss and Devin Singletary each got three carries and one catch, as Buffalo's main goal was keeping its backfield tandem healthy for the wild-card round next week. Third-stringer Antonio Williams made the most of his opportunity with a pair of touchdowns in the blowout win. Moss finishes his rookie regular season with 112 carries for 481 yards and four touchdowns, as well as 95 yards and a touchdown on 14 receptions.
Moss rushed 12 times for 57 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's 38-9 win over the Patriots. He also caught his only target for no gain.
Moss hit double digits in carries for the third straight game, leading the Bills in rushing in the process. Along with averaging close to five yards per tote, Moss scored his fifth touchdown of the season with a five-yard rush to start the second quarter. In comparison, teammate Devin Singletary finished Monday's game with 10 rushes for 36 yards and two catches for 16 more. By now, Buffalo's backfield rotation is well established, but Moss's production Monday bodes favorably for him continuing to edge Singletary in carries in Week 17 versus the Dolphins.
Moss rushed 13 times for 81 yards while not being targeted in the passing game during Buffalo's 48-19 win over Denver on Saturday.
Devin Singletary stole Moss's thunder with a garbage-time 51-yard gallop late in the fourth quarter, but it was the rookie Moss who carried the mail most of the day, leading the team with the aforementioned 13 carries and doing most of the clock-grinding work in the second half with the Bills holding onto a big league. The one negative is that Moss had a few cracks at the end zone on the Bills' numerous scoring drives, but he was either stopped short or watched with the rest of his teammates as QB Josh Allen worked his magic and ran in for two scores on the ground.
Moss rushed 13 times for 43 yards while failing to haul in his lone target in Sunday's 26-15 win over the Steelers.
Moss saw his workload jump back up to double-digit carries for the first time since his Week 8 explosion against the Patriots (14 carries for 81 yards and two touchdowns). The 2020 third-round pick was less effective with the larger workload this time around, averaging just 3.3 yards per touch, but the Bills did end up getting the victory. Head coach Sean McDermott enlightened the media that Moss's benching last week was indeed the result of his fumble early in the contest. Not only did the rookie get out of his coach's doghouse, but he also surpassed co-starter Devin Singletary in carries by significant margin (13 to seven). While the carry share could flip back in the latter's favor next week against Denver, it appears that both will be involved in the game plan now that Moss is back in his coach's good graces.
Bills head coach Sean McDermott said Wednesday that Moss' limited use in Monday's win over the 49ers was mainly the result of his costly fumble early in the contest, Jourdon LaBarber of the Bills' official site reports. "The reason you didn't see [Moss] is because we can't put the ball on the turf like that and expect to win games," McDermott said.
Moss wasn't benched the entire game and ended up seeing further action in the fourth quarter, but he ended up with three carries for nine yards and one catch for five yards across his 11 snaps. McDermott isn't the type to permanently punish a promising player, so Moss should get more opportunities in the weeks to come, especially after he wasn't even credited with a lost fumble on the play in question (the turnover was attributed to quarterback Josh Allen.) Still, Moss had a chance to wrest the starting job from a previously struggling Devin Singletary, but the latter seems to be firmly back atop the depth chart after a couple of strong games.
Moss registered nine yards on three carries, adding one reception for five yards during Monday's 34-24 win against the 49ers. He and Josh Allen also fumbled an exchange on the Bills' one-yard line, resulting in a first-quarter giveaway.
Buffalo had its way through the air, as Allen racked up 300-plus passing yards and at least three passing scores for the fourth time this season. The ground attack didn't fare nearly as well, with the Bills accumulating just 3.0 yards per carry against San Francisco's ninth-ranked rush defense. Moss yielded the bulk of the work to Devin Singletary, who collected 61 yards over 18 carries while adding 22 yards as a pass catcher. Moss, a third-round rookie, heads into a Week 14 matchup against Pittsburgh having averaged seven rush attempts per game over his past four appearances.
Moss rushed nine times for 59 yards and caught both of his targets for nine yards in Sunday's 27-17 win over the Chargers.
Buffalo employed a near-even three man rushing split between Moss, Devin Singletary (11 carries for 82 yards and a fumble) and Josh Allen (nine carries for 32 yards and a touchdown). It has been tough to glean fantasy value from the divided Buffalo backfield, especially with Allen leading the team with six rushing touchdowns, but Moss racked up the second-highest rushing yardage total of his young career and will try to build on this performance in Week 13 against the 49ers.
Moss carried the ball seven times for 20 yards and caught one of two targets for minus-3 yards in Sunday's 32-30 loss to the Cardinals.
As poor as Moss's performance was, Devin Singletary was just as ineffective, netting 10 yards on five touches, and Josh Allen wound up leading the Bills in rushing yards. With the team headed into its bye week, Sean McDermott and the coaching staff will get some extra time to figure out how to spark a backfield that has seen a running back top 50 rushing yards only once in the last five games.
Moss carried nine times for 18 yards and a touchdown while catching both his targets for an additional 30 yards during Sunday's 44-34 win over the Seahawks.
Moss, who led the team in carries as Devin Singletary received just two, struggled to the tune of 2.0 yards per tote. He offset the lack of yardage a bit with a short rushing touchdown, giving him three in the last two games. It was also impressive to see Moss contribute with limited usage in the passing game, as he notched a new career high in receiving yardage. The rookie clearly seems to be carving out a larger role in the offense and will look to do more with his carries next Sunday against the Cardinals.
Moss rushed 14 times for 81 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 24-21 win over New England. He failed to catch his only target.
After Devin Singletary got the first five touches out of Buffalo's backfield, Moss subbed in late on Buffalo's opening drive and made an immediate impact. The rookie scampered for 21 yards on his first carry and opened the scoring with an eight-yard touchdown on his second. Moss scored again from four yards out in the third quarter, but he actually finished with five fewer rushing yards than Singletary on the same number of carries. With three scrimmage touchdowns in five games to Singletary's one score in eight, Moss is establishing himself as the better scoring option in Buffalo's backfield. He'll hope to build on this effort in Week 9 against the Seahawks.
Moss rushed seven times for 47 yards and caught all three of his targets for another 25 yards in Sunday's 18-10 win over the Jets.
Buffalo didn't have a carry by a running back until more than halfway through the second quarter, and that lack of variety allowed New York to focus on stopping the pass en route to a 10-0 lead. It was all Bills from there, but quarterback Josh Allen still ended up leading the team in both rushing attempts (11) and rushing yards (61). On the bright side for Moss, he was far more effective than Devin Singletary, who rushed eight times for 29 yards and caught just two of five targets for 18 yards. It will be tough to rely on Moss from a fantasy standpoint against the Patriots in Week 8 given his limited share of Buffalo's backfield touches, but the rookie third-round pick out of Utah has the potential to grow his role at Singletary's expense moving forward if the latter's struggles persist.
Moss rushed five times for 10 yards in Monday's 26-17 loss to the Chiefs.
Moss made his first appearance since Week 2 after overcoming a toe injury. While rainy conditions favored the running game, Buffalo struggled to get much going from its tailbacks, as starter Devin Singletary managed just 32 yards on his 10 carries and Moss's longest rush went for four yards. Even though Moss didn't impress Monday, having him back healthy should make the snap and touch split between him and Singletary worthwhile to monitor going forward. It's also good timing for Moss, as Week 7's matchup versus the winless Jets appears rather favorable on paper.
Moss (toe) is active for Monday's game against the Chiefs.
Moss, who last suited up Week 2, will return to the Bills' backfield mix Week 6 and is set to work in tandem with Devin Singletary on Monday, with the team having deactivated T.J. Yeldon for the contest.
Moss (toe) practiced fully for the third straight day Saturday and does not have an injury designation heading into Monday's game against Kansas City.
Moss hasn't played since suffering the injury Week 2, and given his increased practice work to go with the fact the Bills had trouble running the ball up the middle Tuesday against Tennessee, we'd be pretty surprised if he isn't on Monday's active roster. That said, Devin Singletary is still the starter and T.J. Yeldon looked good as a change-of-pace back Tuesday, so Moss may be on a limited play count as he continues to get up to speed in his rookie season.
