Buffalo Bills utility man Brad Smith is anxious to get his 2012 season started, one week after the rest of his teammates.
Smith dressed, but did not play a meaningful offensive role in the Bills' season-opening loss to the New York Jets. Prior to the opener, there was a question as to whether he would play because of a groin injury that limited him in practice. That injury is behind him now, as he was able to practice fully all week.
"Last week with being a little banged up, not knowing until later in the week if I was going to be available, was kind of tough, and so was how the game went," he said. "The good thing is I'm healthy. We didn't want it to turn into a four- or five-week injury."
Smith has been working primarily at receiver in practice lately. The Bills also have their own Wildcat version with him at quarterback they've yet to debut.
"We've got some things in [this week] that are possibilities, but you never know the situation," he said. "I'm just ready to get going."
