Eric Wood speaks briefly at One Bills Drive

January 29, 2018

Eric Wood, Sean McDermott, and Brandon Beane were scheduled to meet at a press conference Monday at 1pm. What the media, and fans saw was something different. Wood read a statement at the podium, by himself, almost an hour after the scheduled start time. He spoke for 1 minute and 25 seconds, and did not take any questions from the media. Brandon Beane and Sean McDermott met seperately in scrums away from the stage.

Here's some quotes from Wood's statement.

"Although I will no longer be cleared to play, I am still on the Bills roster, and look forward to helping the team however possible."

"After the season I had an MRI that revealed a disc that was dangerously close to my spinal cord."

"A return is not possible."
