It was at first feared that rookie offensive tackle Ed Wang will be lost for the year. Thankfully, over the weekend, a source told Pro Football Talk that the initial diagnosis was just a high ankle sprain.

Well, now we know. Indeed, the Bills did get  very lucky, as the same source now confirmed it is truly only a high ankle sprain.

That is good news considering that the Bills had bad luck last year with injuries. Truth be told, Buffalo still will have injuries in 2010, but just not nearly as many with all the changes to the strength and conditioning program.

In the end, it still is good to see that another offensive lineman wasn’t lost for the year.
