After two miserable performances in spot duty at left tackle during the Buffalo Bills' first two games of the season, left tackle Jamon Meredith has been waived by the club. He had been inactive for the past two weeks.
Taking Meredith's place on the active roster is Mansfield Wrotto, who was recruited by and played under Bills head coach Chan Gailey at Georgia Tech. The 6'3", 320-pound Wrotto adds some size to Buffalo's offensive line reserves.
Undrafted rookie free agent Cordaro Howard - another Georgia Tech alum - will now serve as Buffalo's primary backup at both tackle positions, which likely means that Cornell Green's starting right tackle job is safe for the time being. Kraig Urbik, who has seen playing time at right guard in each of the past two games, will be the primary backup at both guard spots, and Wrotto will get a chance to play inside as well. The ninth lineman on the team, rookie Ed Wang, has yet to see active duty this season.
