Bills rookie LB Kelvin Sheppard is excited about his increased role in Buffalo’s front seven. Head coach Chan Gailey confirmed earlier in the week that while he might not be starting he’d see the majority of the work at the inside linebacker spot next to Nick Barnett.

“That’s what I came here for to make an impact and contribute to what we’re trying to make a Super Bowl championship team,” said Sheppard. “I got my first real taste of a lot of snaps this past ball game so it’s time to take that and move on.”

In reviewing the tape from the Giants game, Sheppard said he graded out pretty well.

“It was actually pretty good,” he said. “It was pretty clean for the game. We didn’t come out with a win so there were some things we could improve on. There were a couple of snaps in there, a couple of minor things, but nothing big where it was like, ‘Whoa, wait a minute am I making a mistake?’ There were a couple of minor things and I take it and learn from it and get ready for the next opponent.”
