When the Bills run: Don’t expect to see a lot of rookie Devin Singletary. That means Frank Gore and maybe even T.J. Yeldon will get the bulk of the work. It would be meaningful if the Bills could get Gore going heading into the playoffs. He’s coming off the first game of his 15-year career in which he did not log a single rushing attempt. Yeldon, meanwhile, has been a heal…
