8/15 Injury Update

Updated: August 15, 2011

In this space we’ll quickly run down the injuries affecting various players on the Bills’ roster. The Bills left Saturday’s game almost completely unscathed, so emphasis on ‘quick.’

Chris White - Injured his ankle in an otherwise strong performance, breaking up a play 30 yards downfield. He played after the injury, so it doesn’t appear to be serious.

Torell Troup – Troup fractured his hand earlier in the week, which probably caused the coaching staff to limit his play. He still made it into the game, wearing a club-cast on the hand.

Marcus Easley – Easley made it on to the field for the first time in his career following a hyperextended knee. Easley’s performance was underwhelming, but it looked like it had nothing to do with the injury.

The following players were held out of Saturday’s game:

Roscoe Parrish - Parrish was held out with a tweaked hamstring, and no specific timetable has been set.

Shawn Nelson – Missed the game with a pulled quad or ham. Nelson missed yet another opportunity to show he could help this team, especially considering Chandler had 4 targets. He needs to toughen up and get on the field, or perhaps just has had poor luck. I’m leaning towards the former.

Kelvin Sheppard - Another in a long line of pulled leg muscles, Shep was held out as a precautionary measure. As long as Barnett and Davis are healthy, the Bills can afford to be patient with their 3rd round draft choice.

Justin Rogers - Rogers missed Saturday night’s game with a sprained ankle. Hopefully he will be back soon, as reports indicate strong play early from the rookie draftee.

Stay tuned, as we will update this post as injuries materialize.
