Bills CB Stephon Gilmore is getting very close to returning to the lineup after suffering a broken wrist that required surgery back in late August.
Originally given a prognosis of 6-8 weeks, this is week 6 in his recovery. Already medically cleared to practice, Gilmore provided an update on when he will be the pins removed from his wrist.
“I’ll get them out (Tuesday), depends on how my wrist feels, I’ll probably wear a little hard case on it, listen to the trainers and go from there,” said Gilmore. “I’m going to practice, see what the coaches want me to do. Take it from there.”
Gilmore intends to play with a protective plastic brace on his wrist.
“It’s something I have to deal with. I had the surgery. I have to wear it to protect it from pain, if it’s pain,” he said. ”Eventually, I wont have to wear it. You got to adjust a little bit and get used to it.”
Gilmore doesn’t have the green light yet for Sunday’s game, but if he does return to the lineup it would be a heck of an assignment as he could be matched up with Cincinnati WR A.J. Green.
“I’m real eager, I just want to do what I can to get back on the field to help this team produce wins,” he said. “Whatever I can do to help the team win, I’m down for it.”
