Centereric Wood announced in January that he cannot be cleared to continue playing football because of a neck injury and the Bills are meeting with a possible replacement for their starting lineup.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the team is meeting with Russell Bodine on Sunday and Monday.

Bodine has started every game the Bengals have played since drafting him in the fourth round of the 2014 draft. There was some talk from the Bengals at the end of the regular season about re-signing Bodine, but Geoff Hobson of the team’s website suggested that’s not likely to happen now that the Bengals have given tight end Tyler Eifert a new deal.
Kids John Greco Jersey Hurns had just 39 receptions for 484 yards in 10 games in 2017, but is just two years removed from a 1,031-yard, 10-touchdown season in 2015 (it’s worth noting: during his breakout campaign in Jacksonville, he spent the majority of his snaps — 62 percent — lined up out wide). When healthy, Hurns is a solid route runner with good speed and run-after-the-catch ability. With Dak Prescott throwing him the ball, the wideout could recapture that Russell Bodine Jersey 2015 form.
He originally was a fourth-round pick of the 49ers, but they used him primarily as a punt and kickoff returner in 2014 and 2015.
The 49ers and the Jets cut him in August before he caught on with the Texans on August 11.
Gaping holes remain at linebacker after the Robert Quinn and Alec Ogletree trades that freed some salary-cap space. The only returning starter among four linebackers is Mark Barron. The Rams have confidence in backups Matt Longacre, Samson Ebukam and Cory Littleton, and they could find some additional depth with the No. 23 pick in the draft. But the Rams would like to add some accomplished veterans at these positions as well. One option could be Connor Barwin, whom they would like to bring back. But even that might not be enough. — Alden Gonzalez
The Niners can use a starting-caliber guard — or two. The 49ers have addressed most of their other needs, though they could still use a real difference-maker at edge rusher. But there is a clear desire to get better at guard where right now the Niners have a trio of Laken Tomlinson, Joshua Garnett anderik Magnuson competing for two spots after the departure of Brandon Fusco to Atlanta. That help could come via the draft but it wouldn’t be a surprise to see San Francisco keep its eyes open for a veteran guard and still add one in the draft. — Nick Wagoner
