The Buffalo Bills and their fans can't say they weren't warned about potential trouble ahead.
It was at the height of their surprising start, when general manager Buddy Nix began expressing concerns about the Bills' lack of experienced depth.
Nix acknowledged Wednesday those fears are being realized on a team that's lost three of four and attempting to plug untested players into key starting spots to replace injured veterans.
Center Eric Wood (right knee) became the latest to go on the season-ending injured reserve list this week.
That means the Bills (5-4) prepare to head to Miami (2-7) for a game Sunday with a starting lineup that could feature as many as 10 players who had five or fewer starts prior to this season.
