[BN] Blitz newsletter: Bills' tightest roster battle could be for RB3

The News' Jay Skurski posted his latest 53-man roster projection on Tuesday. He included only three running backs on the final roster, allowing the team to keep four tight ends and nine offensive lineman.

With LeSean McCoy and Chris Ivory seen as locks to occupy the top two running back positions, that could make the fight for the third running back spot one of the tightest battles in camp.

At least three players are competing for that position: Marcus Murphy, Travaris Cadet and Taiwan Jones.

Murphy has been "consistently solid throughout camp," Skurski wrote, "and is pushing Cadet for the No. 3 job. Jones is a tough cut in this scenario, because the team values his contributions as a kick returner."

Cordon to move out: Tuesday's update in the LeSean McCoy/Delicia Cordon situation was that eviction proceedings against McCoy's ex-girlfriend were finalized.

QB watch: For the second day in a row, Josh Allen got work with the second-team unit, while AJ McCarron and Nathan Peterman flipped spots. The starter for Friday's preseason game against Tyrod Taylor and the Browns has not been named.

Training camp observations, Day 15: New receiver Corey Coleman downplayed his return to Cleveland, saying, "There’s always something to prove when you step on the field." Coleman was also featured on HBO's "Hard Knocks."

Harrison Phillips seeing rewards for paying the price: Get to know the Bills' rookie defensive tackle in this Vic Carucci profile. “He’s one of those guys that a lot of players are pulling for because they like who he is,” defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier said.
