Inside The Bills | Wrotto the right tackle now
"Cordaro got that shoulder banged during the first half and couldn’t start the second half," said head coach Chan Gailey. "But Mansfield was playing okay and after watching the tape I have high hopes for Mansfield. I think he can step in there and be a solid player for us at that position. Cordaro’s shoulder is just too weak right now to go play a whole ball game. So we’ll let Mansfield go play that spot for a while."
