Troup to have surgery next week

Posted by Chris Brown on December 4, 2011 – 10:16 am

Bills NT Torell Troup was placed on injured reserve earlier this week. Buffalobills.com has learned he’ll have back surgery next week.

That according to head coach Chan Gailey.

“It’s scheduled for this week some time,” Gailey told Buffalobills.com. “It’s a shame for him and a shame for us, but hopefully this will solve the problem. And next year it will be like getting another number two draft choice again.”

Troup was never 100 percent healthy ever since his lower back problem first surfaced in Buffalo’s final preseason game and never let up to allow the second-year nose tackle to show how much he improved from his rookie season after a rigorous offseason training regimen. He successful return could go a long way in making Buffalo’s defensive not just deep, but potentially dominant.
