He was limited in practice Wednesday, but it was still progress for Mark Anderson to be back out practicing with his teammates for the first time since Week 5.
“Today went pretty well,” said Anderson. “I just kind of went out there and worked out doing individual drills, just getting back out there, just trying to get back into the flow of things and everything went well.”
For Anderson it’s been a difficult road back. After initially getting surgery in mid-October, Anderson’s torn lateral meniscus required a second procedure.
“It’s been difficult, but it’s something that came up and I had to get it done, had to get the surgery and go through a little adversity, but now I’m back on track and we’re just trying to take it one day at a time.”
Bills head coach Chan Gailey didn’t rule Anderson out for making a return Sunday saying the pass rusher has a “slight chance.” Anderson just wants to get to Thursday first.
“Right now I’m just taking it one day at a time,” he said. “Today was my first day back, come out tomorrow see how everything feels, I might do a little bit more with a little more reps. Like I said just take it one day at at a time and see how everything works.”
How Anderson feels Thursday morning will be the key to the rest of his practice week.
“Tonight I’m going to have to do a lot of ice treatments and different stuff to stop the swelling, so there won’t be any swelling tomorrow,” said Anderson. “Then wake up tomorrow and roll out of bed and see how everything is and if everything is good be back on the field tomorrow.”
