Torbor on the mend

Bills LB Reggie Torbor, who went on I-R two weeks ago is on the mend after shoulder surgery.

Torbor, who had surgery a week ago to repair a torn labrum, said surgery was successful.

“It went well,” he said. “This kind of injury happens every time your arm gets fully extended and a player runs through you pulling your arm back behind your body.”

Linebackers seem to be the most frequent victim of torn labrums, since they often make the most tackles on defense. Andra Davis also wound up on injured reserve with a torn labrum that required surgery.

Rehabilitation time is typically four months, and Torbor would know having been through this rehab before.

“Back when I did my other shoulder it was a four month recovery,” said Torbor. “That’s why I’m glad I got it done now because this means I’ll be ready for the start of the offseason program at the end of March.”
