Bills | Race for No. 2 Running Back Too Close to Call

Allen Wilson, of the Buffalo News, reports the race to see who will be the Buffalo Bills No. 2 running back is still too close to call. The leading contenders are RBs Joe Burns, Shaud Williams, ReShard Lee and rookie Lionel Gates. "It's pretty close," head coach Mike Mularkey said. "The scrimmage (against the Packers on Aug. 5) was a good indicator, but they'll get a fair amount of playing time when we get into these games. We'll switch them up so they're playing against equal talent. We'll get a better chance to see what they can do as these games unfold." Tonight may be the night one of the four takes a step forward because starting RB Willis McGahee is not expected to see much playing time. The Bills want to give his backups all the time they need to distinguish themselves.
