Troup Says Back Injury Not a Chronic Issue

The Buffalo News reports that Torell Troup is speaking out on his back injury, and says that it is not a chronic issue

Torell Troup has heard the whispers and is determined to set the record straight. The back injury that has kept the Buffalo Bills’ second-year nose tackle out of four of six games this season — and severely limited him when he could play — is not something he expects to trouble him the rest of the year. Or even worse, for his entire career. “I’ve heard people say that, about it being a chronic issue. No, it’s not,” Troup said Monday, as the Bills returned to practice following their bye week. “It’s just something that needs time.” What makes the injury — which is persistent tightness in the lower back — even more frustrating is that it came on the heels of a broken hand suffered during training camp. “That’s what started it, and it’s been something ever since,” Troup said. “It’s very frustrating to work so hard in the offseason, and then [it’s] just thing after another thing.”
