The weekend considered by many around the NFL to be the toughest of the year is underway. All 32 franchises, including the Buffalo Bills, are in the process of making and finalizing difficult decisions as they cut their rosters down to the 53-man regular season limit while Saturday’s 4 p.m. deadline to do so looms.

The Bills released 10 players on Friday, including punter Brian Moorman and defensive tackle Landon Cohen, and placed three others on injured reserve to cut their roster down to 62.

That leaves Buffalo with nine moves still to make by Saturday. One of those moves will be covered by linebacker Nigel Bradham’s Week 1 suspension, which goes into effect Saturday, but the Bills must choose eight others to release or place on reserve lists.

Even then, the Bills’ roster-shaping work won’t be done. It’s likely that the Bills will bring in a number of players cut by other teams, which will force Buffalo to make even more cuts. Additionally, the Bills will both choose from their own released players and scour the waiver wire to build a 10-man practice squad by Sunday.

When the dust finally settles next week and the Bills have their roster set for Week 1, what will it look like and who will join them in practice? There’s still a lot to be determined, but here’s an updated projection following Friday’s latest wave of moves.
