Why Wood is being spelled

Posted by Chris Brown on October 11, 2010 – 9:23 am

Bills RG Eric Wood is still being subbed out for a series or two here and there through the course of football games, and that was again the case on Sunday against the Jaguars. Wood explained the situation.

“They just want to keep me fresh for the fourth quarter is what I’m told,” said Wood. “It’ll be a lot better looking plan if we are leading in the fourth quarter trying to run out a victory. But at times like this it’s tough to see how exactly it’s paying off.  We don’t envision being in two-minute drills every fourth quarter.  We’re taking a little bit of a rest on it.  Like with any injury it’s going to be fatigue more when you miss practice reps and need a little time off.”

Kraig Urbik was the reserve lineman that stepped in for Wood for a couple of series against the Jaguars. Demetrius Bell, who is also coming off a major offseason surgery was spelled for a couple of series by Cordaro Howard. Howard also played right tackle after the game was out of reach.
