Bills LB Paul Posluszny is not going to be his typical full speed self when camp practice begins Thursday. That's because of a groin injury that cropped up and required minor surgery.
"I had to have a procedure done on my groin and I'm going to be limited the first couple of weeks of camp," said Posluszny. "I feel great now and I feel fine, but the trainers want to take it slow and make sure everything heals properly so I'm 100 percent for the season."
With that cautious approach in mind Posluszny is anticipating that he'll only be working on the side with the athletic training staff the first few practices here at camp. He said he was told he would not be put on the active PUP list.
Posluszny participated fully in the spring practices, but about halfway through the spring schedule he tweaked a muscle in his groin and it did not improve. It was decided that surgery would be performed, which took place two weeks ago.
"It was a matter of solving a small problem now so it wouldn't become a bigger problem later," Posluszny said. "This way I'll be able to get through the season fine and not have something creep up on me later on."
The inside linebacker is confident that he'll be able to catch up on lost time on the practice field in short order in Buffalo's new defensive scheme.
"I felt like I picked it up well during the OTAs and minicamp, but I definitely need to be out there especially now with the pads going on, so I will be a bit behind, but hopefully I can catch up when I get back out there.
