Chandler’s progress good sign for offense

Bills TE Scott Chandler is still recovering from a torn ACL suffered in the penultimate game of the 2012 season, but five months to the day Chandler was on the practice field following the team’s OTA workout, running routes and catching passes. It’s an encouraging sign for Buffalo’s passing game as Chandler’s production largely flew under the radar.

Chandler not only tied for second on the team in receptions with 43, but he was also second behind just Stevie Johnson in receiving yards (571) and was tied with Johnson for most receiving touchdowns with six.

Knowing Buffalo will be plugging in new players to replace the likes of Donald Jones and David Nelson at wideout, having Chandler to pair with Johnson from the very start of the season will offer the new offense two valuable building blocks instead of just one.

As it stands right now Chandler is likely to be a participant in practice right from the start of training camp.
