Injury won't slow Kyle Wilber
Wilber had surgery last week to repair a fractured right index finger and is expected to be out until training camp begins in late July. He said the pins will be removed in two weeks and he will be able to resume conditioning work.
“I don’t think it will affect me too much,” said Wilber, a linebacker who excelled at the rookie camp after the draft. “The coaches will make sure I stay in my playbook and as soon as the pins are removed I’ll get back to physical activity. ... I might be a little behind but I’m sure the strength coaches and my coaches will push me to catch back up with the team.”
Wilber said he does not remember how he suffered the injury but X-rays taken following the second rookie practice revealed the break.
“It’s fine,” Wilber said. “I’m just ready for this cast to come off.”
