Bills QB Kevin Kolb was just coming off his best practice of training camp when his freak slip on a rubber mat going from one practice field to another cost him better than a week of camp practice. Now just getting back into the flow of practice Monday, Kolb is trying to put the frustrations of an unforeseen mishap behind him.
“Oh man, I mean it was (frustrating), I’d just come off my best practice probably, feeling really comfortable,” he said. “I just got through telling everybody ‘This is the most comfortable I’ve felt in a while’ and for something goofy like that to happen was very frustrating. Of course with the family situation having to leave the team for a while, obviously not a good time but you fight through those struggles and move on.”
Kolb not only wasn’t practicing, a family funeral back home kept him out of team meetings as well. His knee still isn’t 100 percent and it’s put him behind in practice reps and preseason game time. He’s hopeful that he can go out and play on Friday night against the Vikings, but even he is unsure of whether his knee will be healthy enough to do that.
“I don’t know that really I can do that because a lot of it depends on how I feel tomorrow coming back from a full practice,” Kolb said. “I’d love to tell you right now that I’m playing for sure, but that’s not necessarily correct.”
