During the preseason, rather than looking at players such as Saquon Barkley, Allen Robinson, and others who have significant playing time assured, we will focus on the rookies fighting for roster spots:
Troy Apke: Although Apke is technically a second-year player, his injury in 2018 caused him to miss the season. The safety had six tackles against the Bengals.
Ryan Bates: Here’s another look at Bates’ chances in the NFL this season from a Bills’ perspective.
Koa Farmer: Farmer had two more tackles against the Cardinals.
Kevin Givens: Givens had a tackle for loss against Denver.
Trace McSorley: McSorley followed up last week by rushing for 17 yards, and completing 8/13 for 74 yards, an interception, and his first career touchdown:

Shareef Miller: Miller had a nice game against Jacksonville with four tackles, including his first NFL sack (Yes, I know it’s the preseason, but it still counts):
Amani Oruwariye: Oruwariye had three tackles for the Lions against the Texans.
Miles Sanders: Sanders had five carries for 31 yards against the Jaguars, including this nice run:
Nick Scott: Scott had one tackle for the Rams against the Cowboys.
DeAndre Thompkins: Thompkins had a tackle, and was targeted once without a reception against the Jaguars.
