PHOENIX (WGR 550) -- An interesting byproduct of the Buffalo Bills struggling as much as they did defensively against the San Francisco was the willingness to try new personnel as the game continued.
The most glaring change of them all? The amount of time on the field fourth-round rookie Nigel Bradham received for the picked on Arthur Moats.
After the game, head coach Chan Gailey said Bradham both impressed and underwhelmed throughout his time on the field. After going over the tape, the head coach was asked on Monday if Bradham had a chance to take over the starting strongside linebacker job as early as this week?
"He might be [in line to start this week]," said Gailey. "We will wait and see till the end of the week, but he might be, yes."
Moats has been the starter for the first five games of the season, after taking the job over from veteran linebacker Kirk Morrison in training camp. His woes in coverage and biting on the play-action pass have led to Bradham seeing some time on the field.
The Bills start their practice week on the campus of Arizona State University on Wednesday.
