As a new member of Buffalo’s offensive line, veteran right tackle Cornell Green naturally wants to get as acclimated as quickly as possible with his new coaches, the new scheme and most importantly with the guard he’s most likely to be working with during the regular season. To this point that hasn’t been possible as Eric Wood is still rehabbing from his leg injury. But Green isn’t worried at this point.
Green has been in the league long enough to understand the importance of team chemistry, especially on an offensive line. But he believes as long as Wood is ready for trianing camp, they should be good to go.
“We want him back here and we want him to be beside me and I want to be able to work with him, but at the same time we’ve got to get him back healthy,” said Green. “And there’s no need to rush him back or anything. Everything will take care of itself. He’s out here every day going over the plays, he’s out here snapping the ball in 7-on-7. He’s antsy.”
Wood said Tuesday everything is still on schedule for him to participate in training camp, though two-a-days or back-to-back days may not be in the cards for him at the outset.
“I’ll be there,” said Wood. “And I should be working hopefully with the ones. But I may need a day here or there to let the soreness get out. We’ll play it by ear.”
