OL Brown had a long rehab

OL Colin Brown, who re-signed with the Bills today, saw his 2012 season cut short by a hamstring injury. But it wasn’t any pulled muscle. It was about the most severe hamstring injury one could have.

Some older Bills fans might remember when Andre Reed tore his hamstring away from the bone and missed a large portion of the 1995 season. Colin Brown, who was starting at right guard in Week 5 at San Francisco, had a very similar injury in that game. Brown tore his hamstring from the bone.

Rehab takes three to six months. I saw Brown in the hallway at One Bills Drive last month and he said he was just getting back to full strength in his affected leg. With the Bills signing him to a new contract it can be presumed that he’ll be healthy for the offseason conditioning program this spring.
