Bills almost have to add an OL

Bills head coach Chan Gailey said he and GM Buddy Nix will discuss what action they take with respect to whether Kraig Urbik, Mike Caussin or Demetrius Bell go on injured reserve. Knowing Buffalo has just one reserve offensive lineman on the roster the Bills will almost have to put at least one of those three players on I-R to make room for another backup.

Most NFL clubs like to dress 7 offensive linemen for a game (5 starters, 2 reserves). Right now they’ve got 6, with Sam Young a backup tackle.

Buffalo has a pair of guards on the practice squad in Mike Jasper and Keith Williams. Presumably one of those players would be promoted to give Buffalo an extra interior lineman should another Bills lineman go down to injury in Sunday’s season finale.
