Bills top pick Marcell Dareus wasn’t 100 percent going into Saturday night’s preseason game against Jacksonville, but wasn’t going to let it keep him out of his preseason home debut.
Dareus had been kicked in the back of his leg in practice earlier in the week and did not practice on Thursday leading up to the game. But he still dressed and played Saturday night with the first team defense as he had all preseason.
“It was pretty sore but you have to play through those, it is part of the game getting little bumps and bruises,” he said. “You go get it treated and get well. I kind of had a feeling that I could play and I tried to go at it 100 percent but I’m going to come back next week and probably be better.”
Dareus had a single tackle in the game.
