Wang Injury Update: Several reports say the injury suffered by Ed Wang on Saturday is not as serious as initially feared. The Buffalo News and Pro Football Talk report that Wang suffered a high ankle sprain and not a knee injury. The Bills have not updated his injury status since the injury occured. Wang had to be carted off the field and couldn't put pressure on the left leg. If it is a high ankle sprain he will likely be back early in training camp. This is very good news because when the injury happened it looked like it could have been a season ending injury. Chan Gailey will speak to the media again on Wednesday and will hopefully have more information. Injury Page.
