Jerry Hughes “on track” after offseason surgeries

Bills defensive end Jerry Hughes extended his streak of 16-game seasons to eight last year, but he didn’t make it to the offseason unscathed.

Hughes had wrist and groin injuries that required him to have surgery after the Bills were bounced from the playoffs in January. He provided a positive update on how his health is progressing this week.

“Everything seems to be on track, going along well with my rehab. I’m still able to go to the facility four times a week, so I’m just moving along quite well,” Hughes said, via the Buffalo News. “I’ve been talking with my trainers and what they’ve been telling the guys here in Houston is that I’m on schedule.”

Hughes caused a bit of a stir when he revealed he played through torn ligaments in his wrist because he only appeared on injury reports due to the groin injury, but the league found the team didn’t violate injury reporting policy.

Assuming his return to health continues to go smoothly, the Bills will be set to match Hughes with Trent Murphy and Mario Addison at defensive end.

  1. As a 1st rd bust of the Colts, he was never on track.

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen him make a play.

    Leonard Williams type impact off a whole bunch of hype.

  2. Hughes is probably the most underrated pass rusher in the NFL. Great person and teammate.Perhaps the best trade the Bills ever made.

  3. 7 years, 112 straight games and 46.5 sacks vs 1-year of the Colts having a guy called Kelvin Sheppard. Yeah i’d say the Bills did alright in that trade.

  4. tylawpick6, what sport are you watching? He’s one of the better playmakers in the NFL at DE. Get your eyes looked at, maybe?
