After running back Zack Moss suffered a season-ending ankle injury last Saturday, the team moved to add a veteran to the running back room.

Devonta Freeman signed to the practice squad after being released by the Giants last week. On Wednesday, Bills head coach Sean McDermott said the team is working to get Freeman ready to play as soon as possible.

“I had the unfortunate opportunity to go against him for many years in the NFC South,” McDermott said, via Chris Brown of the team’s website. “So bringing him in was a good move and he adds to what we have and we’ll try to get him up to speed as quickly as possible.”

Devin Singletary and Antonio Williams are also on hand at running back as the Bills prepare for Saturday’s home game against the Ravens.

  1. Objectively speaking, the loss of Zack Moss will loom huge in this game. The Ravens will pound the rock and control the clock. It will be hard for the Bills to do the same. signing Devonta Freeman after he was released by the Giants will not solve that. It’ll be interesting to watch if the lack of depth at the running back position for the Bills will doom them against the Ravens.

    The Bills barely run the ball so I don’t think it will be much of a factor. We win if Allen gets it done through the air.

    Again, I am being objective here. Allen is a beast and has the strongest arm in the NFL. No doubt. I totally agree with that. However, the Ravens are a whole different animal. This game will be about controlling the clock and time of possession. It will be hard to keep up with the Ravens rushing attack where they get to chew the clock and control the tempo of the game. Allen will only have so many opportunities to score. He might force the ball and the Ravens secondary are no chumps. I guess we Will see… May the Best team prevail!

  4. Without a doubt, the best way to beat the Bills is to grind out drives on the ground & chew up TOP. The Colts did that to an extent, and the Ravens have a better roster for doing the same thing.

    It’s a tough, strength-on-strength kind of matchup. Really, a coin flip kind of game.

    Losing Moss hurts, but since the Bills don’t focus on the run, it’s not an enormous difference-maker. Yeldon, Williams and now Freeman can pick up the slack adequately enough.

  5. Devonta Freeman? Really? I get that every little bit helps, but he is old and recently injured. Didn’t play all that well when he WAS able to join in. I question the resource allocation implied by this thing here.
