Easley, who suffered a dislocated knee cap that was also broken in three places, has begun his offseason rehab, BuffaloBills.com reports. "Seven to nine months," Easley said. "They say I should make a full recovery." Easley is the type of guy that will work as hard as possible to keep that window on the short side, but no matter what it starts to push him up against training camp or even the regular season. It'll be interesting to see what the Bills do with him, as Easley takes up a roster spot normally given to a player with better offensive skills, but at the same time he's one of the league's top special teams players when healthy. And yes, he's that good playing the gunner role, among other things.
Easley broke his knee in three places and suffered a dislocated knee cap during Sunday's win over the Cowboys, ESPN.com reports. Easley will be placed on injured reserve and may have a hard time being ready by the start of training camp next season. Head coach Rex Ryan did say that the injury isn't expected to be career-ending, and Easley is signed through 2018 on a contract that guarantees a significant portion of the money. He's primarily valued for his contributions on special teams.
Coach Rex Ryan feels Easley will complete the concussion protocol and be back on the field for Sunday's game against Houston, BuffaloBills.com reports. All it takes is one little setback with this sensible injury, but after Easley missed Sunday's game in Kansas City and hearing Ryan's hopefulness regarding the situation, it sounds like the injury-depleted Bills are ready to welcome their special teams ace back.
Easley (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Chiefs, wgr550.com reports. With just one catch this season, Easley isn't a key cog in the Bills' offense, but his absence this week does represent a hit the Buffalo's special teams corps.
Easley (concussion) did not practice Wednesday. Easley suffered a concussion during Monday's loss to the Patriots, and it remains to be seen whether the special-teams ace will be able to play this week against the Chiefs. He's made just one catch all season for the Bills, so his absence likely won't hurt fantasy owners too much, but it's likely his game-time status will be decided closer to the end of the week.
