In a corresponding move, the third quarterback Davis Webb was sent back to the training roster and wide receiver Austin Proehl was dismissed from the team’s training roster. Proehl – a selection of the seventh-round Bills from the 2018 NFL Draft – became the 49ers and Los Angeles Chargers on the 2nd.

Trubisky missed the team’s week nine loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars and week 10 win against the New York Jets. Webb was promoted to the active list on both occasions.

So far, quarterback Josh Allen has remained relatively healthy (knock on wood). As a result, Trubisky received little playing time and only saw the field in blowouts.

In fact, the former Chicago Bears number 2 hasn’t performed in 43 days. Trubisky played two to four in three games in a row by week and it was not surprising that they were all easy Bills wins.

His performance at Buffalo’s 35-0 Miami Dolphins hide in week two almost doesn’t count as both snaps of Trubisky’s knees were down. During the 43-21 week three win against Washington Football Team, the 27-year-old played a whopping eight offensive snaps, stormed 19 yards four times, and completed his one-yard one-pass attempt.

In the Bills 40-0 shellacking of the Houston Texans in week five, Trubisky played nine snaps that season, racing for 10 yards and one touchdown four times while completing his solitary eight-yard pass attempt. If he hadn’t been still on the COVID-19 / reserve list in Week 10, Trubisky would surely have come to replace Allen Against the Jets in place of Webb, who came for the last four snaps and had a couple on their knees.

While Trubisky was activated on Monday, two other Bills players weren’t, including a seldom targeted wide receiver and an incipient defensive tackle.

Jake Kumerow had played in each of the first eight Bills games of the season before missing week 10, but had more influence on special teams than offense. Kumerow has been on the field for 55 offensive snaps (10%) and 135 special team snaps (65%) this season.

Star Lotulelei was as long-lived as anyone in the NFL prior to last season, starting week one that year with a calf injury in all 16 games in 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019.

Lotulelei played every game from week two through nine before ending up on the COVID-19 / reserve list before beating the New York Jets in week 10.
