Even after breaking his leg against the Seattle Seahawks and undergoing surgery, Buffalo Bills veteran center Eric Wood was wondering whether he would be able to return if the Bills manage to sneak into the playoffs.

Wood kept telling Bills coach Rex Ryan he would beat the projected timetable and wasn't ready to write off his 2016 season. However, on Monday, the Bills announced they placed Wood on injured reserve and promoted cornerback Marcus Roberson from the practice squad to fill the roster spot.
