Remarkable Recovery in Buffalo

Posted on: June 24, 2010 2:13 pm

We could witness one of the most remarkable comebacks in NFL history this season. According to the Buffalo News, Bills guard Eric Wood took about half the reps with the first unit in the Bills’ 11 on 11 drills yesterday. Wood, a first-round pick a year ago, suffered a gruesome compound fracture in his left leg on November 12. (It’s not easy to watch, but if you’re so inclined, click here.)
Wood rested in the afternoon, but overall, he is ahead of schedule in his rehabilitation.

"They're not trying to push me too hard off the bat and hurt my recovery in any way. It's healed but there's still a lot going on down there that needs to be ironed out. They're not giving me all the reps with the [first teamers] but I'm doing about half the reps. I didn't plan on being back for the end of OTAs but as the rehab went on it looked more realistic."

Said coach Chan Gailey: "I'm glad he's getting the reps, but more so for the mental aspect for him. Now he'll really be ready to go in training camp. I think this gives him a great jump start on that."

Man I remember that. Monday Night football.

I still think Joe Theisman's compound fracture with protruding bones and blood on TV is numero uno.

The worst ever is still Napoleon Macallum's complete dislocation of his lower leg.
