Mark Anderson gives rare interview, shares injury details

By Tim Graham

Buffalo Bills defensive end Mark Anderson spoke with reporters today for the first time since his second left knee surgery and revealed some details about the injury.

"It was just a torn lateral meniscus," Anderson said. "So they had to go in and scope it out. Then it had a little catch in it, and then we had to re-scope it."

Anderson, the Bills' second-biggest free-agent acquisition last offseason, is expected to miss his eighth straight game Sunday, when the Bills host the St. Louis Rams. He got hurt in Week Five against the San Francisco 49ers.

Anderson said there was "no timetable" for his return, but with only four games remaining, the Bills likely would have placed him on injured reserve if he wasn't close to coming back.

"This particular injury, you've just got to wait until they heal," Anderson said. "That's all I've been doing. When it's ready, you'll see me out there. Everything is on pace. There's no setbacks this time, and everything's looking good."

In his first five games, Anderson recorded 12 tackles and one sack.
