This couldn’t have been welcome words for Bills fans to ingest this morning if they picked up a copy of the Buffalo News and read that No. 3 pick Marcell Dareus injured his ankle during Wednesday’s practice and was seen on crutches in the locker room afterward.
Bills coach Chan Gailey, speaking before the open locker room session, didn’t make a comment on Dareus, and considering Dareus had played well thus far in the preseason -- he had accumulated two sacks in limited playing time -- his injury was a scary proposition for a rebuilding team.
But not to worry, says WIVB, which reports that Dareus was kicked in the calf during the practice (not the ankle) and that the injury isn’t considered serious.
Dareus had originally hurt his ankle during an Aug. 4 night practice, and a few days later, Gailey said, “"When he gets healthy, I think he can really be something.”
I guess we’ll have to wait a little longer to find out if that’s true.
