Bills get even thinner on the offensive line

There hasn’t been much to smile about for the Bills across the last six quarters of football and their chances of ending their dismal streak in Arizona isn’t looking great thanks to the state of their offensive line.

Buffalo started Sunday’s game against the 49ers down two starting offensive linemen and then lost two more linemen over the course of the afternoon. Chad Rinehart, expected to fill in for injured right guard Kraig Urbik, aggravated a calf injury that had him questionable heading into the game and Colin Brown, Rinehart’s replacement, suffered a hamstring injury. That left backup tackle Sam Young playing guard for the remainder of the game and leaves the Bills awfull short on healthy bodies heading into Week Six against the Cardinals.

The Bills are remaining out west for their game with Arizona and didn’t bring Urbik or left tackle Cordy Glenn on the trip after both of them hurt their ankles against the Patriots. That means they currently have five healthy offensive linemen on the roster, a predicament that Chris Brown of the team’s website believes will lead them to call up at least one player from their practice squad.

If it wasn’t for bad news, the Bills wouldn’t be making any news at all these days.

    Last year the 49ers led the league with most opposing players injured following a game against them…. I think the trend is continuing into this season!

    That’s an easy win for AZ.

    its unbelievable that a team can be so bad for so long. youd think we could get 1 lucky season in every 13 years.

    I would say that the Bills suck, but that’s not news.

    It’s ok. Let ‘em bottom out this season, get the 1st overall pick, take Geno, fire chan, hire someone hungry, hit the reset button and hope for the best.

    I can’t believe Wannstadt still has a job today. Heads need to roll!

    Geno Smith and Anyone but Chan 2o13
