Bills vs. Dolphins Practice Report: More O-Line Shuffling

The Buffalo Bills hit the practice field on Wednesday to begin preparations for the Miami Dolphins - and they did so not just without center Eric Wood, but without right tackle Erik Pears, as well.

That caused some shuffling up front, and in a slightly surprising manner. Kraig Urbik lined up at right tackle today, with Colin Brown taking reps as the first-team right guard. Chris Hairston and Demetrius Bell - limited in his first practice since Week 4 - split reps at left tackle (Hairston got the bulk of the work), with Chad Rinehart and Andy Levitre at left guard and center, respectively.

Pears was listed as a non-participant with a groin injury. He was joined by other surprise non-participants, including receiver David Nelson (ankle) and end Spencer Johnson (calf). Nelson was just resting, and it's possible that both Pears and Johnson were, as well. Stevie Johnson (shoulder), George Wilson (shoulder) and Rian Lindell (shoulder) all sat, as well.

Chris Kelsay practiced on a limited basis, as well, and expects to play in Week 11.
