The Bills defense got the best news it’s had in about six weeks yesterday as both LB Paul Posluszny and S Donte Whitner were able to practice.
I don’t know if Perry Fewell should be smiling, but maybe at least he exhaled a relieved breath. Poz, who has been out with a broken arm, had an interception in Wednesday’s workout and seemed to pick up right where he left off. His control in the middle of the field was absent enough to force Fewell’s hand moving Kawika Mitchell to MLB. Not one full game after doing so, Mitchell was lost for the year to a knee injury that requires surgery. Needless to say, the Bills are desperately running out of options. Good news, looks like Posluszny might just be ready to go this weekend against the Jets.
Donte Whitner, who is the captain of the Bills’ secondary, was also desperately missed the past few weeks with a thumb injury. Despite falling to 1 – 4, Whitner remains optimistic about Buffalo’s season:
We’re only two games out (of first place). We can go ahead and run some wins off. I’m confident about that. On both sides of the ball we’re doing some things to change some of the mistakes that we’ve made. I’m not saying the mistakes we make are acceptable. I think they should be fixed and I think this week they will be fixed.
Well, if Donte says they can be fixed, then maybe they can … or maybe they can’t … so we’ll see I suppose.
