Buffalo Bills snap counts: Player participation through Week 9

Below are the Buffalo Bills' snap counts for the 2017 season, with some observations from the Week 9 loss to the New York Jets.

• With wide receiver Zay Jones hobbled by a knee injury that limited him to 40 snaps, veteran Jordan Matthews was the workhorse at the position, taking 71 of 75 snaps.

• LeSean McCoy played 55 snaps, but got just 12 touches as the Bills fell behind and went away from the running game a week earlier, McCoy played 50 snaps, and touched the ball on 33 of them.

• Fullback Patrick DiMarco also saw his playing time go way down as the Bills were forced to throw. He took a season-low nine snaps on offense.

• Wide receiver Deonte Thompson got a big jump in playing time, going from 23 snaps against the Raiders in Week Eight to 52 against the Jets. Again, that's a product of the team throwing more, but Thompson got substantially more work than Andre Holmes (35 snaps), so it's fair to wonder whether there has been a change on the depth chart between those two players.

• Ramon Humber took 50 defensive snaps in his first game back since breaking his thumb in Week Four against Atlanta. That meant rookie linebacker Matt Milano got just 10 defensive snaps.

• Adolphus Washington looks to have established himself as the starter next to Kyle Williams at defensive tackle. He got 39 snaps, compared to 23 for Jerel Worthy and 20 for Cedric Thornton.

• Rookie linebacker Tanner Vallejo played 91 percent of the snaps on special teams, the most of any player this season.
