Buffalo Bills snap counts: Player participation through Week Eight

Below are the Buffalo Bills' snap counts for the 2017 season, with some observations from the Week Eight win over the Raiders.

• The coaches mean it when they say they're going to stick by rookie receiver Zay Jones. He played the most snaps of any wide receiver, with Jordan Matthews next. Deonte Thompson got two more snaps than Andre Holmes. That looks like it will be the top four receivers going forward barring injury.

• Left tackle Cordy Glenn took all 69 offensive snaps – the first time he's been able to do that this season. That's a good sign for Glenn's health as he manages foot and ankle injuries.

• Running back LeSean McCoy played 50 snaps, and touched the ball on 33 of them, with 27 carries and six receptions.

• Vlad Ducasse looks to have solidified himself as the starting right guard going forward. He took every snap for the third straight game. It will be interesting to see if the Bills look to trade former starter John Miller before Tuesday's deadline.

• Even after his big third-down conversion that helped win the game against Tampa Bay, Taiwan Jones didn't see an increase in offensive snaps. In fact, he didn't see the field offensively, but did play 16 snaps on special teams.

• Here is how the defensive tackle snaps looked without Marcell Dareus: Kyle Williams 47 (out of 65), Adolphus Washington 38, Cedric Thornton 23, Jerel Worthy 14.

• Shamarko Thomas got his first snap of the season on defense, as safety Trae Elston was taken out of the lineup for concussion protocol.

• After three straight games playing more than 60 snaps, Lorenzo Alexander got a bit of a breather with just 36 snaps Sunday.
