Bills rookie offensive lineman Ed Wang has been lining up at guard in the practice setting for the better part of the last month. But that’s going to change come next week.
According to head coach Chan Gailey, Wang will return to the position he played in college and work at offensive tackle again in practice next week.
“We’re really cross training him,” said Gailey. “Starting next week we’re going to go back and work him more at tackle. We’re trying to do both with him to find out where he fits best. He is a very skilled player. He has good feet. He’s a big man. He has a chance to be a player down the line. We’re just making sure we know exactly where the best spot is for him.”
Wang had been playing a bit of catch up having missed most of training camp and all of the preseason, but is up to speed now with the rest of his teammates. Getting on the field this year however, as a rookie, doesn’t appear to be in the cards.
“It’s going to be hard for him to make it (on the field) this year, unless he’s thrown in there because of injuries,” said Gailey. “But I think he’s got a good future ahead of him this year.”
