Found November 30, 2011 on Inside the Bills:
With Torell Troup going on injured reserve Buffalo’s options for a 3-4 nose tackle are down to two. Realistically only Marcell Dareus and Kellen Heard are capable of being an effective nose tackle in a 3-4 front for Buffalo now. Of late the Bills have played more of a 4-3 front, so the loss of Troup might not be that severe. Based on what Chan Gailey said last week regarding 4-3 vs. 3-4 injury could prompt Buffalo’s defensive staff to play more 4-3 than 3-4 the rest of the way. “Some of it has to do with who’s healthy and who’s not, who we think can play, what we think the best matchup is as far as run game vs. tight end, throw vs. back out of the backfield. You take all of those things in consideration, it’s never just one thing,” said Gailey last week. Buffalo has played more 4-3 each of the past two games, including last week against the Jets when Troup was inactive.
