How Bills dealing with snow & injured players

The Bills’ preparations are already challenged for Sunday’s game against the Jets with no players able to reach One Bills Drive due to a travel ban in Orchard Park Wednesday. With four feet of snow on the ground in Orchard Park, and 2-3 more feet expected the big concern is for injured and nicked up players getting necessary treatment for their injuries so they’re ready to play Sunday. Here is what the Bills are doing to resolve that issue around the travel restrictions.

“I’ve talked to our medical staff and have been in constant communication with them,” said Bills head coach Doug Marrone, who did manage to get to One Bills Drive Tuesday and stayed there overnight. “I got off the phone with (Head athletic trainer) Bud Carpenter an hour ago making sure the players understand how to do the things they need to do to help themselves.

“One thing about professional players is they know how to take care of their bodies. I really believe that. We’re doing everything we can from a training staff and even the weight coaches and what they’re doing for the players. We’re doing everything we can from a proactive standpoint to give them all the information and have them in the best shape when the (travel) ban is lifted.”

Even though they’re not practicing Wednesday due to the weather the team has to submit an injury report with an estimate of how much injured players would or would not be able to participate if there were a practice. That report is expected later today.
