Dead legs setting in

After about a week of camp there’s a condition a lot of players experience. Dead legs.

Even though players are in shape, those who run the most (receivers and defensive backs) and those who grind the most (offensive and defensive linemen) develop a feeling where their legs feel heavy and sluggish, as if they’re just dead weight. Zay Jones was feeling it Tuesday.

“Yeah,” Jones admitted to Buffalobills.com. “Trying to be smart. The coaching staff has done an unbelievable job of putting as schedule in place where we can get our legs back underneath us. Just got to get in the training room and be a true professional and make sure we take care of our bodies.”

Players often get massages and use the cold tub to revitalize the legs. This time of year it’s not uncommon to take two trips to the cold tub per day instead of one.

“Whatever it takes,” Jones said. “We have an unbelievable training staff that caters to us night and day. So fortunate to have that with the Bills and just trying to take care of our bodies and do the smart things and be ready.”
