Bills left tackle Bell will miss Eagles game

Offensive line depth was one of the biggest concerns for the Buffalo Bills as they entered the 2011 season.

That depth is about to be tested, as left tackle Demitrius Bell has already been declared out of Sunday's game with the Philadelphia Eagles due to a shoulder injury, according to the Buffalo News.

That means the Bills will be trusting the most important position on the offensive line to a largely untested rookie, Chris Hairston, a fourth-round pick out of Clemson.

Hairston will probably face a serious challenge, as he readies to protect QB Ryan Fitzpatrick's blindside, because the Eagles and defensive line coach Jim Washburn's philosophy is put pressure on the quarterback.
