Buffalo Bills 2017 snap counts: Player participation through Week Two

Below are the Buffalo Bills' snap counts for the 2017 season, with some observations from the Week Two loss to the Panthers.

• Offensive tackle Cordy Glenn and defensive tackle Marcell Dareus each were limited to 17 snaps because of ankle injuries. Dareus was able to return to the game, while Glenn was not in the second half. Rookie Dion Dawkins replaced Glenn, while coach Sean McDermott used a three-tackle rotation defensively with Kyle Williams, Cedric Thornton and Adolphus Washington while Dareus was out.

• McDermott stuck true to his philosophy of rotating players on the defensive line, as both Eddie Yarbrough and Ryan Davis saw their playing time increase from Week One. The heat in Carolina certainly could have been a factor. Ditto for the lopsided time of possession in favor of Carolina in the first half.

• Fullback Patrick DiMarco hasn't gotten involved much in the first two weeks. He's playing just 25 percent of the offensive snaps, and has been targeted twice, making one catch for 12 yards

• No. 3 wide receiver Andre Holmes took five fewer snaps than he did in Week One, but his percentage of time on the field increased, from 51 percent against the Jets to 63 percent against the Panthers.

• Rookie linebacker Tanner Vallejo made his NFL debut, playing five snaps on special teams.
