The good news is, the Bills have enough offensive options that they can make a change to the starting lineup without a catastrophe occurring.
But that might be bad news for former starting wideout Robert Woods.
Those were the only three wideouts to play with starting quarterback E.J. Manuel.
“A little bit [surprised] for Woody not to be in with us with the one’s. A bit surprising,” Manuel said. “But he did great. He did great. Woody’s going to be Woody with whatever he’s given. So I was still glad to see him go out there and do a great job.”
Woods started 14 games as a rookie, and caught 40 passes. He had been working with the ones through camp, but said he wasn’t told why he didn’t start.
“No,” he said. “It is what it is. I just come out here and make plays whenever I’m in on the field.”
Having multiple options is a good thing for the Bills, and clearly Bills coach Doug Marrone has mended fences with Williams, who left his Syracuse team.
