Bills OL Shuffles Even More
A few days removed from placing center Eric Wood on the season-ending Injured Reserve list, the Buffalo Bills are dealing with even more fluctuation of their line based off of Wednesday's practice.
Starting right tackle Erik Pears, who has been consistent all season long for the team, did not participate in Wednesday's session. Without Wood and Pears, the Bills had five players practicing with the first team that did not start the season at that position.
Heck, none of the players even took snaps with the first team last week at the positions they assumed on Wednesday.
The line combination for Wednesday is as follows:
Left Tackle: Chris Hairston
Left Guard: Chad Rinehart
Center: Andy Levitre
Right Guard: Colin Brown
Right Tackle: Kraig Urbik
The severity of the injury to Pears is not yet known, and Wednesday may have been only a rest day. However, if it lingers on through the week, it's a large area of concern for a team that's going up against a Miami Dolphins defensive line that have been productive this season.
Demetrius Bell seems to be getting closer, however. He practiced on a limited basis for the first time since injuring his shoulder against Cincinnati.
