Struggles Versus Run Limiting Maybin's Playing Time

Supposedly in line for a bigger role entering his second professional season, Buffalo Bills pass rusher Aaron Maybin has not seen much playing time through two regular season games. Used only in nickel and dime packages in obvious passing situations, Maybin has just two tackles through two games, and aside from a nice QB pressure on his first snap of the season, he's been fairly invisible in those rare occasions he's played.

Bills head coach Chan Gailey explained to BuffaloBills.com exactly why Maybin has not been on the field much.

"He's got to get better versus the run," Gailey said. "That's the thing that he is struggling the most with right now, is knowing every snap exactly where to play and how to play the run."

Gailey still believes, however, that Maybin - who has yet to record a sack in the NFL - can help his team get heat on opposing quarterbacks.

"He can be a good pass rusher for us, but if you're only one-dimensional it hurts you sometimes," Gailey said. "We have to be able to get him better versus the run, that's what we're working on, and then I can see him getting a lot more playing time."
