Arthur Moats has been a linebacker in motion from the time he arrived at One Bills Drive last year as he’s transitioned from inside linebacker to outside linebacker and back and back again. For now though he will stay at outside backer.
Head coach Chan Gailey confirmed as much due primarily to the injured Chris Kelsay.
“We’ve got to put him out there right now,” said Gailey of Moats. ”We’ve got to leave him out there especially while Chris (Kelsay) is out. We’ve got to leave him out there.”
Gailey was encouraged by Moats’ performance Sunday against the Eagles, which included a quarterback hit leading to an errant throw and interception.
“He did a nice job,” said Gailey. ”He wasn’t perfect. He hadn’t practiced there a lot so I think as he gets more work there maybe he’ll continue to give us a little juice off the edge.”
With Kelsay not expected to return to the lineup this week Moats should again be part of the rotation of players that included Spencer Johnson and Danny Batten at Kelsay’s OLB position.
