The Buffalo Bills have prioritized versatility in their offensive linemen since head coach Sean McDermott and general manager Brandon Beane arrived in 2017. That versatility doesn’t stop at just the reserve linemen, as the team has added multiple players who can play multiple positions along the offensive line.

Prior to last Friday’s practice, McDermott was asked about the starting offensive line combination, and specifically the status of second-year man Cody Ford. Last year, the Bills had their second-round choice in the 2019 NFL Draft play exclusively at right tackle (outside of a few training camp practices). However, with starting right guard Jon Feliciano sidelined by a torn pectoral muscle this year, the possibility of sliding Ford to right guard has been broached by many a media type, as well as team decision-makers themselves.

“I would like to see something unfold this week, when I say this week I mean maybe over the next seven days” McDermott said when asked specifically about Ford’s position. “We’re still looking at some things and trying to evaluate and make sure we have a full of evaluation and understanding of our situation with what that would do at the starter level and how that would impact our depth behind those starters. Before we make any final moves we’re going to take all of those factors into consideration.”
