In yesterday's game, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers gave a lot of playing time to a lot of people who won't be on the roster by Sunday. And most of the players who will be on the roster didn't see the field at all, or only for a handful of snaps.
I'm not sure what we can tell from these statistics, given that most of these players are backups anyway. The few players who are likely to see time with the first team only got a handful of snaps. But the special teams participation may be most important.
Russell Shepard, Ka'Lial Glaud, Larry English, Steven Means and Nate Askew stand out in terms of special teams snaps. Of those players, Means is the only one who's almost certain to make the roster. Askew is a good practice squad candidate, while Glaud probably loses out to Danny Lansanah at linebacker. Larry English' place on the roster is still uncertain, but his ability to play on special teams can only help him.
What interests me is that center Josh Allen, tackle Kevin Pamphile and cornerback Marc Antony played the entire game, with Anthony mostly playing safety. It seems unlikely Allen and Anthony even make the roster, but Pamphile has a shot -- if only because he has the advantage of being a draft pick.
