It was a long road back from wrist surgery, but only now is Stephon Gilmore again feeling like himself out on the field.
As we profiled on Buffalobills.com today, it’s been a challenging road back to 100 percent for Gilmore, who missed the first five games of the season coming off of wrist surgery in late August. He told Buffalobills.com that only in the past game against the Jets was he truly using his left wrist like he used to with his physical pressing style against wide receivers.
“I feel a lot better, I’m actually using my left hand now; playing with confidence like I always have been,” Gilmore told Buffalobills.com. “I’m actually being myself like I was in training camp.”
Head coach Doug Marrone confirmed that it’s very difficult for players to recover from a long term injury and return to form during the season.
“It is a tough road when you take that much time off and then come back, but he’s done an outstanding job and is playing better and better each week,” Marrone told Buffalobills.com. “I don’t know what his ceiling is, but he could be one of the best corners out there.”
