Bushrod on transitioning to guard: 'I'm up for it'

"You just have to get your timing down and things like that," Bushrod said. "The fight happens a little sooner at guard. I don’t see it being too tough of an obstacle. It’s going to be hard, but playing in the NFL is hard. It’s not an easy task. 

"I’m up for it."
