It appears Bills rookie Chris Hairston will be manning the left tackle position - opposite Dallas sackmaster DeMarcus Ware - in Sunday's game in Dallas.
Hairston missed the Washington game with a sprained ankle and dressed but did not play against the Jets on Sunday. But Hairston is confident he's healthy to play this week.
