Bills WR Roscoe Parrish, who went on injured reserve back in Week 10 with a dislocated wrist that required surgery, will be going back under the knife on Thursday.
“I’m getting the pins removed from my wrist (Thursday),” Parrish told Buffalobills.com. “My recovery has been a little longer than the first time because in this situation I didn’t have to rush, and in my rookie year I was trying to get back. This time it was more about getting it fully healed up and right. So this time it should be better than the last time, especially knowing I have a whole offseason to rehab it.”
Parrish first suffered a broken wrist as a rookie in training camp back in 2005, and was racing through the healing process to get back on the field. He missed the first six games of his rookie season.
Parrish said this time around that they put bigger pins in his wrist to strengthen the bone more to prevent it from happening again.
“It was tough,” said Parrish, who has yet to watch the play when he got injured. “I kind of knew it, but didn’t want to believe it at the time. I was in denial about it.”
Denial because Parrish was on his way to his most productive season in a Bills uniform. Eventually Parrish moved past the fact that his season was ended prematurely.
“As time went by I just felt like everything happens for a reason,” said Parrish. “At least I was able to show what I’m capable of doing at receiver. It could’ve been worse. I could’ve been injured before I did anything and then the offseason would’ve been harder.”
