Bills' Hairston Out with High Ankle Sprain
Suffering an ankle injury on Sunday against the New York Giants, Buffalo Bills rookie left tackle Chris Hairston had to leave the game, and was announced to be out anywhere from two-to-four weeks.
While head coach Chan Gailey didn't offer up any further clarification on Monday with Hairston's injury, the rookie confirmed exactly what he was dealing with.
Hairston said it's a high ankle sprain that is derailing a portion of his season.
"It's disappointing, but it's part of the game," the rookie said. "Honestly, you really just have to roll with the punches and do what you can to get better and to help this team out. That's just what I plan on doing."
No injury is a good injury, but if he's going to have one, it's better to be able to deal with it during a bye week.
"The timing of it -- I hate to say it -- was perfect," Hairston said. "A little time to rehab up and be here all day long, be able to get real good care of it. It couldn't come at a better time."
