Bills newly signed linebacker Teddy Lehman should be dressed for today’s game. He made the trip to New England with the team after signing Friday, and has prior knowledge of Buffalo’s defensive system, having played in a similar scheme in Detroit under Dick Jauron.
Kawika Mitchell should play today despite being questionable with an ankle injury. But the limited depth at linebacker, in terms of players with game experience, will likely have Lehman dressed for the game.
Dressing seven linebackers might seem unlikely, but I would expect Lehman to take the active game day roster spot usually occupied by Donte Whitner. Buffalo will still have four active safeties (Scott, Simpson, Wendling, Whitner), who are all active most Sundays anyway, so plugging Lehman into Whitner’s game day roster spot doesn’t take away from any of the other positions.
