More Changes Expected for Bills versus Arizona
One of the best in the league at the start of the season, but the Bills offensive line is one banged up unit heading into Sunday's game against a Cardinals defense ranked fifth in points allowed.
Down three linemen with another up in the air for Sunday, the Bills brought in veteran Reggie Wells this week. Head coach Chan Gailey doubts he'll play against the Cardinals however. As for the guy the line needs to keep upright - quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick - he's more concerned about doing his job, not the big guys doing theirs.
"It’s a feel thing," Fitzpatrick said. "You’ve got to have some sort of pocket presence but I’m not sitting there thinking about who’s at right guard who our left tackle is. You can’t think about any of that stuff. I think you put in schemes and hope that they work and guys are effective up front but that’s something that after the snap that I can’t worry about."
Giving up 97 points over two games should lead to some changes on the defense. It looks like at least one is coming for the Bills this Sunday.
Working out in Arizona this week, Nigel Bradham has been taking first team reps over Arthur Moats at strong side linebacker. Gailey would not confirm, but at this point, it looks like the rookie will make his first NFL start this Sunday.
"Any time you get a chance like this to go out there and play on Sundays, it's part of your dream, I mean everything you wanted. It's just a goal, playing with the guys and earning respect from you teammates. You are playing for the guy beside you. He's expecting a lot out of you. You have to know your game and go out there and execute, know what you have to do every down."
