WGR-AM reports: 'Wood signed with the Bills the next day and had to play a preseason game the following night in Cleveland. He tried to get as much of the playbook down that he could in just one day. Of course, that wasn’t easy, but he finished the game with three carries for six yards and caught one pass for another ten yards. When I asked him if he was told to just “run left and run right” that night, he laughed and recalled one play when he had to pass protect for Bills QB EJ Manuel. “I didn’t know what to do,” he said. “I looked at EJ after we broke the huddle and whispered, ‘pssst, what do I do?’ EJ turned around and just said, ‘pass protect to my right.’ “'
All-22 Review - Bills/Giants [1:42 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'In the midst of the loss to the Giants you may have felt like the defense had a terrible day. It didn't. Sure the Nigel Bradham missed tackle goes as a big mark against, and the run defense could certainly improve, but for the most part, I'd say the All-22 shows a solid performance against Eli Manning and Odell Beckham Jr. OBJ is a dominant force in the league, and while the Giants attempted to establish his presence in the game, it never truly materialized. The Bills locked him up, particularly when matched against the corners on the outside.'
