If Buffalo Bills head coach Chan Gailey is to be believed, the left guard competition he opened up between Andy Levitre and challenger Chad Rinehart last week is over - unless, of course, Levitre can beat out Demetrius Bell to be the team's starting left tackle. He admitted as much to reporters earlier this week: if Bell sticks at left tackle, Levitre will start at left guard.
That's a rather quick exit for Rinehart and his chances at earning a starting gig, at least on the surface. Unless, of course, Gailey has toyed with the idea of letting Rinehart try to unseat Kraig Urbik at right guard.
Gailey will be letting Rinehart split reps with Levitre at left guard this Saturday against Jacksonville merely to allow Levitre to take reps at left tackle. It would be pretty easy to slip Rinehart in at right guard while Bell and Levitre man the left side, allowing Rinehart to compete for Urbik's spot (and possibly to let Urbik take some emergency center reps later in the game).
It's just our opinion, but Urbik's play has been lacking, so you know where our vote lies. Now we're asking for your opinion.
