Doug Legursky limited in return to practice
By Mike Rodak
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- As expected, the Buffalo Bills listed offensive lineman Doug Legursky as limited in his return to practice Wednesday.
Legursky said he suffered an MCL injury in the Aug. 29 preseason finale. He was carted off the field, but the injury wound up being less severe than it first looked.
"I've had an MCL [injury] before. I knew that the [MCL] was part of my knee injury. I didn't know how extensive it was other than that," Legursky said Wednesday. "Once it was just [the MCL], I knew the road map, how to get back healthy, just as I've done it many times in my career. As have a lot of other players. That's a pretty common injury."
The sixth-year lineman said it's still too early to say when he'll return to game action, but so far it's the quickest he's recovered from this specific injury.
"As far as already doing individual [drills], it's the fastest I've ever come back from an MCL," Legursky said.
Until Legursky is back to full strength, the Bills remain thin along their offensive line. Legursky should slide into the top interior reserve role once he returns.
As for resuming his competition with Colin Brown to start at left guard, head coach Doug Marrone said that decision will have to wait.
"I think Colin Brown is our starting left guard, and we'll evaluate Doug when he gets back," he said.
