Chan keeps DE rotation to himself

Bills head coach Chan Gailey was asked about a lot of the position battles and starting roles with respect to the depth chart. And though he cautioned not to read too much into who lines up where at the first practice Thursday, he did not give much at all with respect to how the very crowded defensive end positions are going to shake out in terms of reps and playing time with the first and second units.

“I’m not ready to go there yet,” he said. “I think different guys will play in different situations so I don’t know that we’ll say we have two guys that are going to start every snap of every game. We’ll have a rotation that we’ll have there. How it goes I don’t know yet. I know who the left end will be, but whoever else I don’t know right now.”

Gailey is naturally referring to Mario Williams, who is a lock as the starter at left defensive end. Beyond him the pool of candidates for right end include Chris Kelsay, Mark Anderson and Shawne Merriman.
