Offensive line coach Aaron Kromer will be returning to the sidelines for the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. Kromer was suspended for the first six weeks of the season, but will now take over as Buffalo's offensive line coach. He'll return to a unit that has seen some up-and-down play, especially on the right side of the line.
Rookie John Miller and right tackle Seantrel Henderson have been the weak links among the line. The latter is dealing with a concussion, so Kromer and the Bills will have to depend upon Cyrus Kouandjio or Jordan Mills on a short-term basis. Kouandjio seems like the obvious choice, but Rex Ryan wouldn't commit to Kouandjio as the starter for Sunday's game. Although Ryan wouldn't commit, Kouandjio took first team reps at practice on Sunday.
Kromer needs to focus his energies on Miller and the combination of Henderson and Kouandjio to do their part in the run game and in pass protection. This side of the line has really struggled to keep up with left tackle Cordy Glenn and left guard Richie Incognito. The latter is having a terrific season and Glenn has also played very well for Buffalo. Even center Eric Wood has bounced back from his struggles in 2014 to a certain extent. If Kromer can coach up Miller and Henderson/Kouandjio in the second half of the season, Bills fans will welcome Kromer back with open arms.
Welcome back, Kromer...
