PITTSFORD, N. Kendall Hunter Camo Jersey .Y. —Buffalo
Bills receiver David Nelson was relieved to learn he will miss only a few days
of practice after being diagnosed with a strained tendon in his right leg.
Nelson provided the update after missing practice Sunday, a day after he was
hurt. He walked with a slight limp, and was wearing a wrap around his injured
leg. Nelson initially feared the injury was worse after he was pushed over
during a team drill and defensive end Mario Williams rolled up on his leg.
Buffalo coach Chan Gailey expects Nelson to miss between four and five days. The
Bills get a day off Monday, before returning to training camp in suburban
Rochester on Tuesday. Reserve cornerback Justin Rogers didnt finish practice

Matt Lashoff is the kind of leader every team needs. The quality made him so
endearing that the then-injured Toronto Marlies defenceman began travelling with
the team at the onset of their playoff run solely for that reason. After playing
11 games with the Maple Leafs toward the end of last season, the former first
round pick was hoping to be among the teams first AHL call-ups this season.
Those hopes were dashed after injuring his knee during a game at the end of
October on what Marlies head coach Dallas Eakins called a “questionable hit.” A
resulting torn anterior cruciate ligament required surgery followed by gruelling
rehab, which he completed in just over six months. Typical recovery is between
eight and 12 months. “Once the injury happened, it was a pretty big shock to my
system,” said the 25-year-old. “I pretty much focused on setting my mind set
straight, once I got the surgery, to work hard and I gave myself the goal of
coming back for the playoffs.” Still rehabbing as the playoffs began, Eakins
made the unusual request to Lashoff of asking him to re-join the team despite
his inability to play. “I want those guys around …,” said Eakins, after the
Marlies advanced past the Abbotsford Heat on Wednesday with a 3-2 win to take
the second-round series in five games. “Thats a guy that has a new baby at home.
Knowing that when hes not playing, hed rather be at home with his wife and new
baby, he knows the importance of leadership, he bought into that.” Lashoff began
participating in full practice early during the playoffs with hopes of getting
into a game, but odds werent great. “When the playoff roster did come out, from
the doctors point of view, there was no chance of me coming back and thats a
tough thing, not to be able to be relied on on a day-to-day basis,” he said.
Theres wasnt much room for Lashoff on an already deep defence corps. With
Marlies stalwarts Korbinian Holzer, Juraj Mikus and Simon Gysbers playing well
and joined for the playoffs by Leafs rookie sensation Jake Gardiner as well as
talented rookie Jesse Blacker, it seemed likelier Lashoff would get his first
taste of game action in training camp. “I was convinced I was ready,” said
Lashoff. “My body felt good, my knee felt good. Any time you miss that amount of
time, its going to be tough to come back no matter what the situation and
obviously it was a little bit bigger of a test comiing into a second round
series. Aldon Smith Womens Jersey. I obviously had to
attack it the right way but I felt it went well.” Lashoff could have packed it
in and used the summer to further rehabilitate his rebuilt knee, but instead the
pending restricted free agent wanted to assure both himself and potential future
employers that he was medically sound. His moment arrived in Game 4 against
Abbotsford when Eakins inserted Lashoff into the lineup for his first game
action in 191 days. He acquitted himself well, finishing with an even rating
with two penalty minutes, but his off-ice intangibles outweighed his
contributions on the score sheet. “I had a lot of confidence in him, so I had
absolutely no reservations,” said Eakins. “Hes a veteran guy that has worked
extremely hard to come back from a real tough injury. The other thing about
Lashoff is hes a great leader. Hes a guy that you want in your dressing room, a
part of your team.” Lashoff was in street clothes again the following night when
the Marlies clinched the series. Eakins erred on the side of caution, but the
coach was happy just to have the now-healthy defender in the team environment.
Lashoff is quick to sing his coachs praises. Eakins forged a niche as a
rough-and-tumble player through an 18-year professional career and has endeared
himself to his players as a coach. “He was a guy that was right by my side when
I got hurt and throughout the rehab process he was a guy I could lean on if I
wanted to do certain stuff rehab-wise or workout-wise,” said Lashoff. “He was
there pushing me and keeping me positive throughout the whole thing.” Lashoff
has 16 points in 74 career NHL games since being chosen 22nd overall in the 2005
draft by the Boston Bruins, and is still young enough to contribute in a depth
role to an NHL team. But with the Leafs blue-line seemingly full and the Marlies
boasting NHL-ready options in Holzer and Blacker, Lashoffs future with the
organization seems cloudy. Still, getting that first game out of the way and no
longer having the prospect of an uncertain summer of rehab hanging over his head
is a relief. “Thats a huge thing mentally for myself. It was huge not only for
contract status but for my own healthy mindset …,” he said. “I can come in
next season and be strong and not worrying about doing simple little things for
your knee and compensating. I can actually go to the gym and have a normal
summer.” ’ ’ ’
