With training camp almost here, how are you feeling these days about the Bills offensive line? Eric Wood is a big player the club needs back, and according to the Len Pasquarelli at The Sports Xchange, the coaches are counting on him big time this year.
The recent remarks of Buffalo center Eric Wood, regarding his solid rehabilitation from the knee injury that limited him to nine games in 2011, magnified the confidence of the Bills’ staff about an improved line this year.
Buffalo coaches feel that if Wood can stay healthy – the former first-rounder has suffered two major injuries in three seasons, a fractured leg in ’09, and an ACL last year – he can be a Pro Bowl-level performer.
The Bills still have a question at left tackle, where second-year veteran Chris Hairston and rookie second-rounder Cordy Glenn should compete for the starting job, but right tackle Erik Pears seems to have solidified that position. And the coaches also feel that left guard Andy Levitre might be one the most unheralded linemen in the league.
