The Buffalo Bills recently learned some unfortunate news about one of their top running backs.
Nyheim Hines was involved in a jet ski accident and will now be sidelined for the 2023 season.
This has left many fans wondering what the team will do at the running back position, being they are down a player.
An ESPN analyst, Eric Moody, recently indicated that the Bills should bring in Dalvin Cook as a replacement.
Harris exists, but the Bills are trying to win a Super Bowl. An RBBC of Dalvin Cook, James Cook and Harris gives them a better chance to do so. It's outside the box, but they should consider the addition IMO.

This would give the Bills a three-headed monster at running back, with both Cook brothers and newly-signed Damien Harris.
Moody recognizes this is an unorthodox approach but worth trying for the Bills.
Last season, the Bills rushed for the ninth-most yards in the league, but 762 came from Josh Allen.
Despite signing Harris and drafting James Cook in the second round, they haven’t necessarily shown a propensity to use their running backs in a workhorse role.
However, as Moody indicates, a running-back-by-committee approach could work for the Bills this season.
After two straight seasons of falling short of the Super Bowl, the Bills might be willing to try anything.
Allen has established himself as a talented passer and rusher, but for whatever reason, the team’s results haven’t been as expected.
Dalvin Cook’s presence in this offense would add another playmaker and a veteran back in a young room.
If the Bills do look for an additional back, Cook could fit in nicely.
Will the Bills take a swing at Cook, rounding out their running back room for 2023?
