Easley won't comment on his health

091411Easley
---Wide receiver Marcus Easley was in the Bills’ facility on Thursday but didn’t comment on his current health condition, what led the team to place him on season-ending injured reserve or if his condition is career threatening.

The Bills placed the former UConn wideout on IR in September because of a heart ailment, according to a source. When asked if he would be able to continue his NFL career, Easley said he wanted to keep matters private and remain optimistic. He was also placed on injured reserve last season after suffering a knee injury during training camp.

“As far as I’m concerned I’m still on the team and I’m welcomed to attend meetings and work out if I’d like to,’’ Easley said. “I’m trying to stay around, keep the team camaraderie and take my mind off things.’’

Easley wouldn’t comment on his current workouts or a timetable on his possible return.

 “I’m still here so right now I’m taking things day-by-day and worry about that when the time comes,’’ he said. “With the things that were going on, I really couldn’t do too much but right now I’m just taking things day-by-day and hoping for the best.’’
