Bills OL Eric Wood played center for the first time in two seasons Sunday and performed admirably against a pair of respectable nose tackles in Ahtyba Rubin and Shaun Rogers. But his play was fully anticipated to be that good by Buffalo’s coaching staff.
“Eric did a nice job. He handled things well,” said Chan Gailey. ”I think people were somewhat surprised by that, but we weren’t at all. We fully expected him to go in there and be able to do what he did. That was a nose man that had played pretty well against some people in the past. I thought it was a positive the way he was able to go fill in and play.”
As for starting center Geoff Hangartner, he’s still on the mend, but won’t play in Miami Sunday.
“He’s better,” Gailey said. ”He won’t be ready this week. It’s going to be close really the rest of the year on him, but he’s getting better.”
