Inside the Bills:
Bills rookie OL Chris Hairston will be making his first NFL start on Sunday as he mans the left tackle spot in place of an injured Demetrius Bell. There’s a lot that he’ll be learning on the fly, but Buffalo’s offensive staff will be learning just as much about a rookie they didn’t see much of in training camp or the preseason.
The Bills offensive coaches did not have Hairston on the practice field a whole lot this past summer as Hairston missed time and the first two preseason game with a knee injury. With limited exposure to Hairston and with Hairston’s limited exposure to live NFL football both he and the coaches will both be learning as he goes.
“There’s a lot to learn (about Chris),” said Gailey of Hairston. ”We don’t know how he’s going to handle a whole game, a full quarter. We don’t know how he’s going to handle a full quarter yet. He’s got a lot on his plate this week. I have a lot of confidence in him, but he’s still got to go do it.”
