According to one report from NFL network Reporter Tom Pelissero, Buffalo Bills running back Zack Moss will be a healthy scratch for tonight’s game against the New Orleans Saints.
Moss, who leads the Bills in quick touchdowns this year with four, has seen dwindling snap numbers over the past two weeks as Buffalo have used fast veteran Matt Breida as a complement to starter Devin Singletary. If Pelissero’s source is correct, then the Bills will do well after head coach Sean McDermott’s claim earlier this week that Breida deserves more touches on the attack.
Bills activated wide receiver Marquez Stevenson from injured reserve this afternoon, so it is possible that the straight swap in terms of roster spot could become Stevenson for Moss. Stevenson gives the Bills a speed element that Moss does not, and he also gives the team a kick-back opportunity except for Isaiah McKenzie, who lost a costly fumble that turned a 17-7 deficit into a 24-7 hole on the way into the second half. Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts.
This would be the second time this year that Moss is itchy if he is actually inactive, as the Bills left Moss inactive for their opening week loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
