    Besides, there are other options if you are willing to draft OL more frequent and earlier.

    The Bills haven't been in the past so they were put in this risky position after Woods retired.
    Lets say he has a 60% of playing. I doubt we had a 60% chance of landing Paradis, and by the time he decided everyone else would have been gone.

    Yeah on the draft you will get no argument from me. But once you've created this problem, Morse was the best choice available.

    He may be The most important player on the team. Behind Mitch there is no one, and Quinnen Williams is coming on opening day.

    On this team, the starting C is even more vital than the starting QB. At least at QB we have a backup who could win a few games.

    Beane gets low marks for putting his eggs in one injury prone basket at this position, which is on an already not so solid unit.

    Re: Mitch Morse in Concussion Protocol

    I donít understand people saying they had no plan B. Long was the first player they signed before free agency and Feliciano was signed right away along with Morse. How many centers do you think one team can have?

    Re: Mitch Morse in Concussion Protocol

    The fact that Bodine is still preferred over Long is a bad sign for him. It looks like Feliciano gets the job and Ford stays at guard. That combo looked good in pass pro Thursday night.

    Thing about that is that Long isn't at center and Feliciano never played it before that I'm aware of, so it looks like the answer is sort of fuzzy.

    Morse was a good signing. Unfortunately he is concussed again. I guess we'll see how Feliciano does. They aren't deep in centers though and it's still unusual they're making a brand new ol with a brand new coach in their 3rd year of a program, 2nd year developing their franchise QB.

    Long missed some time and wasn't able to work at C as much as the Bills hoped and that's why Bodine was ahead of him on the depth chart. The new depth chart has him ahead of Bodine now.

    It also has Feliciano at guard though he started at center and Long at center though he played at guard so I probably wouldn't put too much into it at this point. Since Bodine's injury they had him spelling Spain at LG, then spelling Feliciano at center as Feliciano spelled Ford at right guard as Ford spelled Nsekhe at right tackle.

    I think it's a position you draft. In the first 2 or 3 rounds no less.

    Only an insane team lets their franchise center go. It's one of those top 5 positions on your team. If you're letting your guy go and he's good, there's a reason.

    We need to draft our Kent Hull next season. But make no mistake, we absolutely need to get Allen his Kent Hull.

    I can't imagine Morris finishing out this season let alone half of the remaining years on his deal. He's really freaking good, and they rolled the dice. I get it. I'm damn near certain it will have been a failed gamble though.

    Again, this is a position you need to draft anyway so lets get on that. It's not like we need to draft anymore defensive players FCOL. Maybe a stud WR falls to us, maybe not.

    I'm still going Center all the way in the 2020 draft if I was making the decisions and my job was on the line.

    I hope they are just being super cautious because of the early time frame and it isn't symptoms this whole time.

    He is at least practicing in pads and on a limited basis.

    He won’t be playing this Friday.

    If he doesn’t play at all in our 3rd preseason game a week Friday, then I will be concerned.

    His first in game snaps have to be before the regular season begins.

    Feliciano is the starting RG. Long has missed a good amount of time so they probably had Feliciano start at center against the Colts because he's had more time with Josh. I think that that depth chart is accurate (why put it out, much less change it if it's fake?) and that once Morse is back, Bodine is gone.

    Re: Mitch Morse in Concussion Protocol

    I'd be willing to bet that Morse is pretty much ready to go, but they are keeping him out... he's a know quantity so there is no need for him to get all that many reps IMO. why get banged in the head in a preseason game? save it till september. He's getting mental reps and will get plenty of non contact reps before the season... he knows how to block.
    My son played guard in college and was the RG1, got a concussion early in camp and they just kept him on ice till the games started then dropped him in... he did just fine.

    Re: Mitch Morse in Concussion Protocol

    I think he returns to practice for game 3, plays a half and then sits until the opener.

    Re: Mitch Morse in Concussion Protocol

    Unfortunately, he was concussed the first practice in pads. An opponent hasn't even hit him yet. If he's going to get easily concussed again, may as well be sooner instead of later so they have another center as ready as possible. If he gets easily concussed again, the writing is on the wall anyway and may as well face it.
