According to the report Kyle Arrington has gotten a number of snaps with the first defense this week, and the 2nd-year player could potentially end up getting the start when the Patriots take on the Bills this Sunday in Foxboro.

After Butler's two defensive pass interference penalties in Sunday's loss, fans later saw Arrington take over for him on the Jets final offensive series.  However, if the news is true of his participation this week, it looks we may see Arrington get the nod over Butler this weekend. 

It's always nice to get a shot at redemption.  We'll have to wait and see if Butler gets another chance, or if Arrington ends up winning the battle to play opposite rookie Devin McCourty.
