After not practicing with the team for the better part of the last two months due to a broken foot, injured reserve-designated to return CB Ron Brooks was very happy with how his foot responded to his first day of practice back with the team.
“It went really good,” Brooks told Buffalobills.com. ”I felt real good. I didn’t have any pain. It’s like I picked up where I left off and it felt better actually than when I was in the preseason. So I tried to push it and see how well it was doing and it held up just fine.”
Brooks told Buffalobills.com that he believes he initially injured the foot early in training camp and may have played in all three preseason games with the fracture in his foot, which has since been corrected with surgery.
Despite the layoff, Brooks doesn’t think he’s got any rust to knock off.
“As far as rust I didn’t really feel like I had any rust,” said Brooks. ”It felt really good to be back out. I was excited to be back out there. I don’t think it’ll be a factor of knocking the rust off rather than just getting caught back up to speed and making sure I’m know everything that’s going on and they’re putting in the game plan from previous weeks.
“I’m just going to continue to do what I did when I was in camp and rookie OTAs and come out here and try to get better at my position and do what I need to do.”
