Bills fifth-round pick Ed Wang shed the giant club he was wearing in practice the past few weeks to protect his surgically repaired thumb. However, according to head coach Chan Gailey he’s still not ready to use that hand like a normal offensive lineman.
“I think we’re a few weeks away from that,” said Gailey. ”He’s going to have to keep that protective cast on a little bit longer. It’s not the big club that he had.
“He does have use of his fingertips, but he still can’t do things like punching with that cast on it that he normally could. It’ll be a little while before he gets back 100 percent, but right now we’re sitting at 80 (percent) and that’s better than 60 (percent) and that’s where he was.”
The good thing about Wang is he should be ready conditioning-wise since he’s been in the practice setting since the start of the season.
