With the regular season opener set for Sunday at the New York Jets, the Bills are getting healthy. The team is expecting to have both Mark Anderson and Terrence McGee back in the lineup for that game. Anderson has been nursing a groin injury for much of the preseason. He was held out of the team's final 2 preseason games.
"Ya know, I had a little history with the groin," said Anderson. "This is the first time that it's been real sore, and I got a chance to rest it. I did some rehab with it. The trainers got me going pretty good and I'm ready to go now."
Meanwhile, McGee continues to recover from patella tendon surgery and has yet to reach 100 percent. But he says he's ready to go on Sunday, even if it's in a limited role.
"It's going to be one of those things where it's a long process," McGee said. "I've got to change certain things about my warmup, stretching habits, and things like that. It's just something that you have to work through until it gets 100 percent."
"If you look out on the practice field, most every day he is doing something extra to get himself ready to play," added Chan Gailey. "It means a lot to him, he's a pro's pro, and it's great to have a presence like that."
Brad Smith was held out of practice on Monday, as he continues to recover from a groin injury. Chan Gailey hopes to have him back later in the week and has not ruled him out for Sunday.
