The Buffalo Bills rested their starting quarterback Josh Allen against the Detroit Lions in Week 1 of preseason and appeared determined to work on the run game. Bills running back Zack Moss, who split work with Devin Singletary last season was out with a hamstring injury. Singletary took advantage and ran the ball with purpose, rushing eight times for 42 yards and catching a six-yard touchdown from quarterback Davis Webb.

This game helps Singletary, but Moss isn’t going anywhere just yet. His hamstring injury has been called “day-to-day”, so we shouldn’t expect a long absence. Zack Moss has “consistently been the best running back” at Bills camp, per The Athletic’s Matthew Fairburn.
Moss will need to get back sooner than later if he wants to keep that edge though. I doubt we see one back take over an every-down role, but whoever can get the edge in touches should have good upside in a strong Bills offense.
