Bills TE Scott Chandler tore his ACL in the Week 16 loss to the Dolphins and was placed on injured reserve just days later. With the swelling now subsided Chandler has been scheduled for surgery.

Chandler will have surgery to repair his torn ACL next week, and rehab will ensue a short time after that. The Bills tight end is ready to undertake the lengthy rehab process, which typically takes 7-9 months.

What has him encouraged is how successfully a lot of players have come back from torn ACL in the 2012 season across the league.

“You see guys running and cutting and it’s encouraging,” Chandler said. “These doctors know what they’re doing now. I think a lot of the onus is on the player now to get out there and bust his butt to get back, and that’s what I’m going to do.”

Chandler said he’ll be back and forth between Buffalo and Iowa this offseason during his rehab.
