Right guard change

Posted by Chris Brown on December 12, 2010 – 6:00 am

Earlier in the week Bills head coach Chan Gailey indicated that the right guard spot would be manned this week by Cordaro Howard and Ed Wang against the Browns today. That plan sounds as if it has been changed after the conclusion of the practice week.

“I feel good about Eric at center,” Gailey told Buffalobills.com. “The challenge is replacing him at right guard. The combination of maybe Chad Rinehart and Cordaro Howard, we’re going to have to play both of those guys in there to bolster that spot to the point where we have a winning player at that spot.”

On Wednesday Gailey said that Howard and Wang would “probably” split the right guard duties on Sunday, but it’s pretty clear that it will now be a combination of Rinehart and Howard.

Rinehart, who was promoted to the active roster earlier in the week, has four NFL starts in his career all of which came with Washington in 2009 at guard, so he has a bit more experience than Wang. It sounds as if he’ll spell Howard, who is still not fully recovered from a shoulder injury that he sustained last month, throughout the course of the game.
