Poz is limited

Standard

I checked my phone a little after six to my dismay that there were two text messages from the Buffalo Bills as I am signed up for text alerts.

The first one was of course the team announcing the signing of second round pick nose tackle Torell Troup.

However, the second one took me by surprise as the Bills announce starting middle linebacker Paul Posluszny will be limited the first couple weeks of camp due to offseason groin surgery.

My theory is that Poz tore hise groin while weight lifting. More specifically he most likely tore it while doing sets of squats.

Now that I think of it more announcements like about groin injuries won’t be surprising as the new strength and conditioning coaches have forced players to start doing squats after years of not doing them, which strong safety Donte Whitner admitted to earlier this year.

In the end, hopefully Poz won’t retear his groin during the season like free safety Jarius Byrd did.

Troup deal done as expected

Standard

Last week I wrote that Buffalo Bills second round draft pick nose tackle Torell Troup’ s deal should be done by the start of training camp.

As expected a deal with Troup is done before the start of training camp.

According to NFL Network’s Steve Wyche, via Pro Football Talk, the Bills reached an agreement with Troup today.

That means Troup will be at Saint John Fisher for the start of training camp tomorrow and will sign the deal tonight or tomorrow morning.

Troup was the bigger deal to get done due to the fact that he has the bigger potential to have more of an impact.  Most likely Troup will play on first and second downs while nose tackle Kyle Williams will come in on third downs.

In the end, hopefully, Troup will be the run stuffer that the Bills drafted him to be.
