Bills owner Ralph C. Wilson Jr. will miss his first home opener in 52 years Sunday according to Mark Gaughan of the Buffalo News. Wilson will be watching the Bills’ game against the Oakland Raiders from his Detroit-area home because he suffered a broken hip in a fall at home in early June.
“I was in the TV room watching the finals of the French Open, I came back to the bedroom and lost my balance,” Wilson told The Buffalo News by phone Thursday. “I’ve been working with a trainer trying to recover. It’s a slow process, but I’m making strides.” Wilson, 92, said his health is good aside from the hip, and he fully expects to get to a home game later this season. “Definitely,” he said. “I just don’t want to rush it too fast. I’m working to get back in shape so I can come over and take the games in. … I’ve been working hard, and I just don’t want any setbacks.”
