Bills must replace production
We're about to find out just how difficult it is to replace David Nelson in the Bills offense. Since the big receiver has gone down with a torn ACL, the Bills lose 658 yards and five hundred yards worth of production from last season.
"It is a setback and you have to get some other people up and going. That is just part of it," Chan Gailey said while addressing the loss of Nelson and running back Fred Jackson. "I feel like we have some other players who can come in and play, but not to the level of these two guys yet."
One of the players Gailey is turning to is rookie T.J. Graham, who was inactive Sunday against the Jets.
"We have to work through some issues with T.J. to make sure that he is on the same page because he has been here the shortest amount of time," the head coach added. "But I think we will be able to work through things."
"I feel like I've got to learn little nick nacks, little audible adjustments," said Graham. "If a rookie is out there and makes a mistake it's a big deal. I can't approach it like a rookie. I have to approach it like a vet. I've been trying to beat the shadow of these guys and learn from them."
