Byrd’s injury improving

Posted by Chris Brown on December 9, 2009 – 5:20 pm

Bills rookie Jairus Byrd has been gutting his way through the past month of games as his ailing groin was not expected to be 100 percent again until the offseason when he could get the proper rest. But interim head coach Perry Fewell indicated otherwise Wednesday.

When asked about Byrd, who has played on a rotational basis due to the nagging injury stated that Byrd’s condition has improved.

“He’s getting better every week,” said Fewell. “He’s feeling stronger every week. We had a conversation (Wednesday) and he lets me know on a weekly basis as to how strong he feels. I feel good about his progress and his rehab.”

Fewell wasn’t ready to go so far as to say that Byrd’s snaps will be increased significantly as a result of his improved condition. But it’s a good sign that the rookie ballhawk could be out on the field more than he has been in recent weeks.
