Week 16 of last year, Scott Chandler goes down and tears his ACL. A question mark came about wondering if he was going to even be ready going in to training camp this year. Questions aside, as of today Chandler has pushed and has ot had a single set back during his rapid recovery.
This is good news for both Chandler and the Bills. Coming off a season where he was one of the more reliable receivers on the field, let alone in the red zone, Chandler was able to tie both Metzalaars and Riemersma for the most TDs by a Buffalo Bills TE in a season and he didn’t play the entire season.
This is also great news for Kolb and Manuel as Chandler’s biggest push was to be ready for training camp to get in sync with both of the QBs.
Although the ACL is in great condition, Chandler is still not at 100% football shape. His conditioning is lacking from what it would be at this point. He as a month and a half to get his endurance up and his conditioning to where it needs to be going into training camp.
Chandler commented on his progress via the teams website…
“My guess I’m not just going to go in there all the way,” Chandler said, via the team’s website. “I’m just worried about getting my lungs in shape and my legs. That’s what this next month and a half is for. It’s not vacation. It’s nothing like that. I’m going to be working just as hard as I have been and I’m going to be ready to go.”
Having Chandler available for the start of training camp will not only help the QBs but it will also help the entire offense.
