Buffalo Bills wide receiver Marcus Easley broke his knee in three places and dislocated his kneecap during the team's win over Dallas on December 27. A little over a week later, fresh off of season-ending surgery and with the Bills' regular season schedule concluded, Easley appeared at locker clean-out day with a giant cast on his left leg and a 7-9 month recovery time frame from surgery.
"I got pushed on my right side while my left leg was planted and it pushed my knee cap out to the side and all my momentum dislocated the knee cap and then when I fell it was the fall that broke the knee cap in three places," said Easley. "It's the most pain I have ever felt."
Easley was in obvious pain down on the field and was carted off. Now he's looking at a long offseason rehabilitation.
"Seven to nine months," Easley said. "They say I should make a full recovery."
Seven to nine months from late December would put Easley on track for a full recovery - if things go well - just before the Bills report to training camp in late July.
