Thigpen dealing with minor injury

Posted by Chris Brown on June 1, 2012 – 2:07 pm

Bills QB Tyler Thigpen said he has not participated in the last two days of OTAs this week. Here’s why.

“I’ve got a small tear in my abdominal,” Thigpen told Buffalobills.com. “It’s about a centimeter. I’ve been dealing with it, but we’ve got to rest it and get it right.”

Quarterbacks use their core every time they throw to put added power and torque on their passes. So the abdominal injury is not something that will improve with the constant twisting of the torso when passing. Thigpen doesn’t want to make it a bigger problem than it is now, but did not indicate when he’d be back practicing.

As a result Vince Young took second team reps on offense. Bills OTA practices resume Tuesday June 5th.
