Robert Woods gets start in Buffalo Bills preseason opener

The Buffalo Bills open up their 2013 preseason schedule on Sunday afternoon against the Indianapolis Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium. While the Bills are eager to get a look at rookie quarterback E.J. Manuel, there will be plenty other youngsters that are thrust in to the starting line up because of injuries.

One of the starters will be rookie wide receiver Robert Woods, who gets the start for Stevie Johnson.

From George Bremer of The Herald Bulletin:

Woods is a highly touted wide receiver out of USC.

While he was part of the team that suffered a major letdown in 2012, but he hopes to taste success in the NFL.

Luckily for Woods, he will get a chance to learn the ropes of the pros nice and early thanks to getting the start in the first game of his career.

The Bills and Colts kick off at 1:30 p.m. ET.
