Bills Could Promote Rookie LB Nigel Bradham To Starter
After two consecutive historically bad weeks on the defensive side of the football, the Buffalo Bills appear set to make at least one change, and it's a minor one: you can safely expect Nigel Bradham to be the team's starting strong-side linebacker from this point forward.
Bills head coach Chan Gailey has not yet confirmed the switch, per WGR 550's Joe Buscaglia, but considering that Bradham (39 snaps against San Francisco) more than doubled the playing time of the man he's likely to replace, Arthur Moats (18 snaps), this seems like a foregone conclusion. Kelvin Sheppard and Nick Barnett were the only Bills linebackers to get more playing time on Sunday.
Moats was pulled in favor of Bradham early in Sunday's loss after the third-year player out of James Madison was repeatedly torched in coverage by the 49ers, and tight end Vernon Davis in particular. Bradham looked slightly better against the pass and made a couple of big hits, but was also victimized, losing outside contain on several running plays and generally looking like the rookie fourth-round pick he is.
