The Buffalo Bills made a surprising change on their offensive line prior to their game against the Houston Texans in Week 4. The Bills knew that Jon Feliciano wouldn’t be available due to him suffering a concussion and being ruled out on the team’s injury report on Friday.

The Bills had Ike Boettger replace him at left guard but also made some changes on the right side of the line. In the first three games, the Bills had Daryl Williams at right tackle with Cody Ford inside at right guard.

However, in the game against the Texans, the Bills moved Williams inside and had rookie Spencer Brown get the first start of his NFL career at right tackle. This resulted in Cody Ford moving to the bench.

The results were good and Sean McDermott said on Monday that they are going to continue with the same starting five from this past Sunday.

What does this mean for Jon Feliciano on the Buffalo Bills starting offensive line?

It wasn’t surprising that the Buffalo Bills would keep the same starters on the right side because the combination of Williams and Brown looked good. However, this does create a question about whether or not Jon Feliciano also lost his starting job.

Ike Boettger was a starting guard down the stretch for the Buffalo Bills last year in place of the injured Cody Ford. He played well in that time and the offensive line as a whole played some of their best football with him in the starting lineup.

However, Feliciano is a key part of this offense and the Buffalo Bills did bring him back this offseason on a multi-year deal. It is hard to imagine that Feliciano would be moved to the bench but Sean McDermott’s comments were certainly interesting to say the least.

The Buffalo Bills are entering arguably the most important regular season game of the season when they face the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. This new offensive line will certainly be tested against a talented Chiefs’ defensive line.
