With Chad Rinehart's ankle injury being long term, the Buffalo Bills have now lost the two interior reserve offensive linemen they started the season with (Colin Brown is on injured reserve because of a torn hamstring).
That means Sam Young, who started the season as the team's fourth tackle, will now have to practice at both guard and tackle. The Bills also have David Snow on the 53-man roster, but as coach Chan Gailey said this week, he's more of a center at this point.
"Probably Sam has to be a jack of all trades knowing guard and tackle. David [Snow] been working more at center than he has anything else at this point. But he’s got to start learning the guard spot too," Gailey said. "It depends on how quickly we get [Kraig] Urbik back, how quickly we get Cordy [Glenn] back. We expect to have both of 'em hopefully for this ball game coming up."
If Glenn and Urbik do return for Week Nine's game against Houston, as expected, the Bills will have their starting five along the line from the season opener back together. But their depth, especially along the interior, is much thinner than when the season began.
