Bills OT Jennings placed on IR (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/news?slug=ap-bills-jennings&prov=ap&type=lgns)
Bills starting left tackle Jonas Jennings will miss the rest of the season because of a broken toe in his right foot.

Marcus Price will start in his place. He's played very well as a replacement for both Mike Williams (Re: Game in Miami in 2002) and Jennings.

Marcus Price is the best tackle you have never heard of! He is the best back up in the league. he is starter material.

And my Grandmother throws farther than Dan Marino has ever done.

You can say anything all you want, he just has to prove it to doubters on the field.

Actually, Marques Sullivan is likely to play left tackle, where he started and played well last week. Mike Williams at right tackle is questionable for Sunday, so Marcus Price may start in his place. He has played a number of games for Buffalo at both ends of the line, and there has never been an obvious dropoff in play. He may be a better pass blocker than Mike Williams, whose strength is run blocking.

Actually the story of the Bills' line is two stories. The starting offensive tackles have been OK a lot of times. The first Miami game was pretty bad as Ogunleye had a big day vs. Mike Williams.

The interior has been a problem all year. Marques Sullivan proved not to be the answer at right tackle in training camp and lost his job to Mike Pucillo after admitting he didn't feel comfortable on the interior of the line. Pucillo in the fans' eyes just doesn't have it and most Bills fans were relieved when an injury forced the Bills to try Ross Tucker. Tucker is said to be slow, but he's played pretty well, better than Pucillo in the eyes of most Bills fans. Bills fans have never been sold on Trey Teague at center. He's a finesse guy and big strong DTs tend to overpower him. We're also not sole on Ruben Brown and think that he has made the last several probowls on past reputation rather than current play. He's not the worst guard in the NFL by far, but gets flagged for too many penalties and has given up sacks to an interior pass rush.

Of course a number of sacks are due to Drew Bledsoe's propensity for holding on to the ball trying to wait for something to opne up when the defensive secondary has good coverage.

I think Buffalo will be looking to upgrade the interior of the line in the offseason.
