Bills Still Resting Wood, But Bell Returns To Practice

The Buffalo Bills returned to the practice field on Thursday, and their situation along the offensive line remains the most intriguing development from those sessions. Yesterday, the injury to right tackle Cornell Green - which will sideline him for the foreseeable future - was the big news. Undrafted rookie free agent Cordaro Howard will start at right tackle while Green recovers.

After being held out of practice Wednesday, left tackle Demetrius Bell returned to the field Thursday. Fellow starter Eric Wood, however, was given another day of rest. As most of you are aware, the Bills have been actively substituting Bell and Wood out of live games, carefully monitoring their reps as both continue to progress from season-ending injuries in 2009.

Rookie offensive lineman Ed Wang also told reporters that he's closing in on being ready to make his NFL debut. Wang, who has been practicing inside at guard in recent weeks, has a chance to be one of seven active linemen with Green sidelined, but would need to be the primary backup at tackle with Kraig Urbik entrenched at guard. Thus, Wang would need to get the call ahead of veteran Mansfield Wrotto, whom Gailey mentioned Wednesday as another option at right tackle with Green out.

Terrence McGee, Bryan Scott, Arthur Moats, Keith Ellison and Shawn Nelson joined Green as players that missed practice Thursday due to injury. Wood enjoyed a rest day alongside punter Brian Moorman.
