Shuffle in Tampa

The Bills' second opponent of the season, Tampa Bay, is undergoing some shuffling to its starting lineup. Safety Tanard Jackson was ruled out this week for the first four games due to an NFL suspension. That has prompted the Bucs to shift Jermaine Phillips, who had been starting at linebacker, back to safety, his natural position. Of course, another Bucs linebacker who was slated to start, Ex-Bill Angelo Crowell, is out for the season with a torn biceps injury. That means the two starting outside linebackers for the Week Two game in Buffalo currently have no NFL starts between them. Quincy Black is the strong-side starter. Geno Hayes and Adam Hayward are competing for the weak-side job. The Bills probably could use a banged-up foe in Week Two after visiting the Temple of Doom (Foxboro, Mass.) in Week One.
