Wood is active Sunday against Miami.|||||||
Wood was active despite a knee injury. He had been listed as questionable.
The Bills announced Friday that Wood would play at Minnesota, after originally targeting the third preseason game for his return from surgery on his right knee last November.|||||||
Buffalo Bills receiver David Nelson and center Eric Wood are among the regulars who have been ruled out by coach Chan Gailey from playing in the team's preseason opener against the Washington Redskins on Thursday.|||||||
Wood has been getting more practice time in team sessions, but Gailey doesn't want to risk rushing back the player who is coming off season-ending knee surgery.
Wood will miss the rest of the season after tearing a ligament in his right knee.|||||||
Wood says no timetable has been set for him to have surgery. He is aiming to be back in time for the start of training camp next summer. With a brace on his knee and walking on crutches, Wood provided the update in the locker room on Monday, a day after he was hurt in the third quarter of a 44-7 loss at Dallas.
Able to walk without a limp, Wood is confident his surgically repaired left leg will be fully recovered by the start of training camp this summer. Selected 28th overall out of Louisville last year, Wood was the second of Buffalo's two first-round draft picks. He started 10 games at right guard before being hurt.|||||||
That's great progress for a player who initially feared he might not play again after sustaining a gruesome injury in which he broke two bones in the leg during an 18-15 loss at Jacksonville on Nov. 22. Wood said Tuesday he has been off crutches for a few weeks, and has been cleared for light workouts as the Bills opened their voluntary spring workout program this week.
