OT Scott is Bell’s likely replacement

Even though veteran Kirk Chambers stepped in for Demetrius Bell when he injured his groin in last week’s game, RT Jonathan Scott is technically the team’s swing tackle. So if Bell, who did not practice Wednesday, cannot go Sunday in Miami, it’s likely that Scott will man the blind side with Chambers at right tackle.

According to Dick Jauron he has no problem starting Scott on the left side if it comes to that.

“Jonathan has played both sides,” said Jauron. “We’ve flipped him a lot as the swing tackle so he’s gotten work in both areas, as has Kirk. We’ll work our way through the week and then kind of decide what we want to do. But I’m comfortable with Jonathan. Thought he did a nice job for us on Sunday playing on the right side.”

In Chambers time with the Bills he has seen more time at right tackle than left. He last played left tackle in a game back in the season finale in 2007 when he filled in for an injured Jason Peters against Philadelphia, while Langston Walker stayed on the right side.
