Haven't heard much from them. One was supposed to start at RT And the other push for RG And I read nothing about Richardson challenging RG.

Not going well according to Joe B. I believe it was Friday or Saturday when the defense went bonkers with sacks and pressures. Hughes was abusing Kouandjio all night. Friday it was stated that Richardson may not even make the team unless he turns things around which would be a decent disappointment faience he was in this style of offense at Baylor. Apparently Pears and Urbik are just healthy and beating out the rookies fair and square.

Cyrus will get his chances once the pre-season begins and the Bills once again discover that Pears is the worst starting RT in the entire NFL. Then, if the gods are good, Pears will be banished from the league and forced to pay restitution for making Bills fans suffer through his terrible, terrible, terrible play for the past few seasons.

... :D

I'm certainly OK with vets beating out rookie OLs and the DL that lead the league in sacks last season embarrassing them, it should be expected. But to cut one during their rookie preseason would be a huge mistake.

Both need to get it done!! CK spoke a good piece about having a chip in his shoulder about not being drafted in the first... Hopefully he can put his play where his mouth is and contribute!!

I would agree with that.

So far, 7th round pick Seantrel Henderson looks like the best rookie offensive lineman.

I don't think we should get too concerned right now as these guys are rookies. If the vets are beating out the rookies, then that's good because they're stepping up their game knowing if they don't, then they'll be off the team as these rookies will be taking their spots.

If Richardson doesn't make the team that is a huge FK up for Whaley and his drafting.

Cyril Richardson is taking 2nd team reps at LG. Antoine McClain was there previously while the rookie was with the 3rd unit. #Bills

Really.....a late round drafted guard is a total screw up by Whaley?

Richardson is pushing for LG I thought, not RG (where Hairston is pushing Urbik, no?). I had very high hopes for him. We NEED him to pan out at LG. Good to hear he's getting reps with the 2s. Hopefully 1s soon.

Kouandjio & Richardson are rookies, it's going to take time for them to become good NFL players.

I did think Kouandjio would be doing better, but I'll just have to be patient and watch for him to grow.

Richardson does not surprise me. He's going to take a little longer to get up to being a starter in this league.

This is positive.

My expectation for Richardson is to be the primary guard backup this year.

Has Hairston had any RT reps? I thought he was originally drafted as a tackle? Is it the old "short arms" thing?
