News: During the media access portion of practice Wednesday, which ESPN's Mike Rodak noted is "essentially just warm-up drills," Dixon lined up with the Bills' first-team, along with starting QB Kyle Orton. Meanwhile, fellow RB Bryce Brown, who has yet to see a regular season snap to date, lined up with EJ Manuel and the second-team offense.
Impact: Running backs are gold this time of season once injuries strike - and the last few weeks have certainly been a bloodbath for the position - so people all over are trying to play hunches on the Buffalo situation following injuries to Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller in the same half. The truth is we won't know for sure until the Bills line up to play the Jets this week, and even that could change as soon as game flow kicks in. So we'll give you the knowns in as simple a fashion as possible: Dixon is the likely starter and the surer thing. He beat out Brown for the No. 3 spot for a reason and the team brass seems to love his attitude and all-around game. He's going to get his chance, and one of his skill sets lies around the the goal line. So there's some safety in picking Dixon if you're hurting at running back. Brown, on the other hand, is the upside play. We've seen what he can do while LeSean McCoy was hurt, and quite frankly, he's a better athlete than Dixon. Also, there's a chance Dixon has trouble behind an offensive line that's struggling and the quicker-bursting Brown takes the job and runs with it for four weeks. To sum it up, we like Dixon by a slight margin as a short-term play and he could end up being a nice plugger/chugger for your lineup for a month, but if you're filling bench spots and/or looking for a lottery ticket, Brown probably has more upside.
