Report: Career-ending injury is said to be center Eric Wood
By: Nick Wojton
According to Scout Fantasy Sports, who first reported a starter on the Buffalo Bills offense suffered a career-ending injury, the player in question is center Eric Wood.
During the season, Wood had not been listed with any sort of neck injury, only with an ankle injury in late October. Wood, 31, played all 16 games for the Bills in 2017.
According to Adam Schefter, the injury came about from “wear and tear.”
Looking ahead, there’s potential that Ryan Groy replaces Wood in the Bills lineup. In 2016, Groy filled in for Wood for the second half of the season when Wood suffered a broken leg.
Groy, overall, had a successful spell replacing Wood. In 2017, Groy fell out of favor in Rick Dennison’s zone blocking scheme. New offensive coordinator Brian Daboll will reportedly covert the scheme back to 2016’s power scheme where Groy and the rest of the line was more successful.
