Bills O-line shuffling

The BIlls had a lot of moving parts on their offensive line due to injuries at practice today.

With Eric Wood out, Andy Levitre was working at center, as advertised. Right tackle Erik Pears was sitting out today. We'll have to wait for the injury report to see his ailment, although coach Chan Gailey did not mention Pears' injury in his news conference, so we don't think Pears has a major problem. Guard Kraig Urbik was filling in at right tackle. Chris Hairston, back healthy from an ankle injury, was working at left tackle. Hairston is expected to start there vs. Miami Sunday. Veteran Demetrius Bell was back working behind Hairston at left tackle. Bell has missed the past five games while recovering from a shoulder injury.

Also sitting out practice were receivers Stevie Johnson and David Nelson, safety George Wilson, linebacker Spencer Johnson and kicker Rian Lindell. Nelson was in the locker room and in attendance. It's believed he will be OK for Sunday.
