The position group that the Bills focused on more than any other in the offseason was the offensive line.
General manager Doug Whaley brought in Chris Williams during free agency and Cyrus Kouandjio, Cyril Richardson and Seantrel Henderson in the draft. Now the goal is to sort out the starters and get them comfortable with playing with one another.
We already knew the right tackle job was up for grabs. But both guard spots also need to be filled. And keep an eye on the other tackle spot as camp moves along.
While Cordy Glenn is penciled in as the starter on the blind side, he has yet to take the field during training camp. Glenn was placed on the Active/Non-football illness list last week. Per Matthew Fairburn at Syracuse.com, Whaley said Glenn was day-to-day with the illness.
"We're still waiting on some reports on him but it looks like it's going to be one of those day-to-day things and we'll see how it progresses," Whaley told Fairburn.
Glenn's status doesn't seem too concerning at first glance until you remember that Chris Hairston was on the same list last year heading into training camp and then ended up sitting out the whole season. While it's too early to speculate that is the case with Glenn, the situation is still worth monitoring.
So for now it seems the only solidified position up front is Eric Wood at center. Joe Buscaglia of WGR said Hairston has been working at guard, which opens up even more possibilities since Hairston also worked at tackle when Henderson left Sunday's practice early.
The Bills won't go anywhere in 2014 if they can't protect the quarterback. Finding the best combination of players in the trenches should be one of the team's main camp priorities.
