Bills' Kelsay placed on I-R; two promoted

CB T.J. Heath and OG Keith Williams have been elevated to the active roster. OL Adam Grant and OL J.B. Shugarts have been signed to the practice squad.

Chris Hairston has also been sent to the injured reserve. The Bills signed OL Chis Scott from the Titans practice squad.

Yeah, hopefully they can hold together this week. The right side of the line could be in for a long day.

LT Cordy Glenn (started 9/12 games this season)
LG Andy Levitre (started all 12 games this season)
C Kraig Urbik (started 9/12 games this season)
RG David Snow (rookie, first career start)
RT Sam Young (first career start)

Backups:
OT Thomas Welch (1 career start)
OT Chris Scott (signed 12/06, not likely to be active)
OG Keith Williams (signed 12/05, not likely to be active)

Can't afford anymore injuries either. Wood is out and they have five linemen on IR (Pears, Hairston, Sanders, Rinehart, Brown).

Our offensive line gets destroyed by injuries EVERY YEAR. What gives.

Bad strength and conditioning coaches?

Honestly I have no idea what it could be other than that.

Feb 18. 2010:

Specialization the focus for Bills strength and conditioning

Quote:
To go along with a host of new assistant coaching hires, Gailey tacked on two strength and conditioning coaches, John Gamble and Eric Ciano, recently. While most teams boast a head strength and conditioning coordinator and sometimes up to two assistants, the Bills now have the distinction of being the only NFL Franchise with co-coaches currently filling that role.


So much for that.

On the bright side, at the end of 2009 the Bills had 20 players on the injured reserve. So far in 2012 the Bills have 10 players on IR (with four games left to play). Unfortunately half the players currently on IR are offensive linemen.

Offensive line is easy to get your ankle rolled on.

Honestly there hasn't been many injuries this year compared to others.

I completely forgot Zebrie Saders, he was one of my favourite draft picks from this past year. Moving forward I really like the way our line looks, re-sigining Urbik, Rinehart and for me our top FA in Levitre is a key to our success next year. Moving into 2013 i see something like..

LT: Glenn, Hairston
LG: Levitre, Rinehart
C: Wood,
RG: Urbik, Brown
RT: Pears, Sanders

then maybe guys like Snow, Williams, and Young on the PS.
