Bills’ running back Frank Gore may practice today
The Buffalo Bills will begin their training camp on Thursday and they might be getting one of their offensive weapons back. Frank Gore could be returning to the field as early as today.
According to Joe Buscaglia, a Bills beat reporter, Gore may practice today with the team. Gore was placed on the non-football injury list a couple of days ago with an undisclosed injury.
Reportedly, the injury came from working out but the injury was a minor one. The Bills signed Gore earlier this offseason to add depth to their backfield and a veteran presence.
Although, Buffalo now has a crowded running back room with LeSean McCoy, Gore, and Devin Singletary. It’s likely that the Bills begin the season with McCoy starting once again as he did in 2018.
At 36-years old, Gore is expected to have a role in the offense, but that role is unknown right now. Nonetheless, his role could be decided when the veteran is able to get back on the practice field.
Last season, Gore played with the Miami Dolphins and rushed for 722 yards on 156 carries. That’s pretty impressive for a 35-year old back who likes running between the tackles.
In 2019, Gore could be valuable to the team on and off the field. After all, the experience Gore possesses can come in handy for a youth-filled Bills squad.
The Bills want to solve their running back problem after Josh Allen led the team in rushing in 2018. With Gore returning soon, the Bills coaching staff can get a good look at their backfield in training camp.
