Rinehart to start at RG

Bills OL Chad Rinehart made his fifth career NFL start and first in two seasons Sunday and fared particularly well. So well in fact that he won’t be rotating in for Cordaro Howard. Instead he’ll be starting at right guard against the Dolphins.

“Actually Chad played a lot better than I anticipated he would,” said Chan Gailey. “We’ll go through the rest of the week, but the way he played he certainly deserves to start this week and we’ll see how we handle the rotation and how we work that. Cord came out of the game pretty sore so that might have something to do with it in itself.”

With Howard essentially playing hurt the rest of the season with a shoulder problem that prevents him from maintaining his full strength through the course of a game, Rinehart rotated in for certain series in the game. But with Howard hurting Rinehart may play the full 60 minutes Sunday in Miami.

Ed Wang is an alternative as a rotational guard if Howard is unable to go Sunday.
