OL Chris Hairston is looking ready to roll at left tackle this week.
Hairston is working during the individual position portion of practice as the starting left tackle. Its the position he manned after Demetrius Bell went down with a shoulder injury in Week 4. The rookie offensive tackle was dressed for last week’s game, but did not play as he was available only in the event of an emergency (i.e. injury to Andy Levitre).
That extra game day may prove to be a blessing for the Bills this week.
“As much as I wanted to be out there last week, I don’t want to be out there and hurt the team and that was the best decision that we made all together,” Hairston said. “Being able to take that week and get a little better and every day it’s getting better. So to be able to take that day will help. I’m going to need every bit of help I can going against a guy like this.”
Hairston is referring to DeMarcus Ware, who is second in the league in sacks with 12 in eight games. Hairston has not played in the last two games for the Bills due to a high ankle sprain suffered in Week 6 against the Giants.
