2013 Bills' playtime percentages



(WGR 550) -- Like any team in the NFL, the Buffalo Bills fell victim to injuries and poor play throughout the 2013 campaign. Because of that, it's always interesting to take a look after the season wraps up to see just how much usage each player had over the course of the year.

As you'll notice, the offensive line was remarkably healthy. In fact, they lost only 8 snaps total to injury. The rest of the switches along the offensive line were performance based or when they brought in an additional lineman along the goal line.

It was quite the contrary for quarterbacks and defensive secondary, with all three of those groups having their starters lose significant time on the field due to injuries.

The Bills had four players that took every single snap this season: Kiko Alonso, Cordy Glenn, Eric Wood and Erik Pears. How was the rest of the playing time divvied up?

Here are the percentages and totals throughout the 2013 campaign for the Buffalo Bills.
