Merriman waiting on preseason

Bills LB Shawne Merriman’s play has been encouraging through the first few days of camp. But even he himself is not ready to say he’s returned to being the caliber of player he was when he was a perennial Pro Bowl pass rusher.

“I’ve been working. I’m not going to say I’m back, back yet because we still have a lot of time before we really have to slap on the pads and go against another team,” Merriman said. “But everyday I’m feeling a little bit better, and that’s all that’s important.”

Bills assistant head coach Dave Wannstedt said the staff is going to be smart about not overworking him so he’s primed for the season. Sounds like he wants to show that he’s back and turn the lights out on a QB in the preseason rather than say he’s back.
