 ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -Defensive end Aaron Schobel is on track to return within three weeks after the Buffalo Bills' top pass-rusher began light workouts to test his injured left foot this week, The Associated Press has learned.
A person familiar with the injury told the AP on Wednesday that Schobel is scheduled to begin more intense on-field workouts next week with the possibility he could be cleared to play in Buffalo's game at the New York Jets on Dec. 14. The timetable fits the one provided to Schobel on Nov. 5 when he visited a specialist in North Carolina and had a cast placed on his foot to protect a sprained ligament to his big toe, the person said.
The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the Bills have not announced the severity of the injury or provided updates on when Schobel might return after missing the past six games. Schobel is walking in a protective boot since having the cast removed about two weeks ago, the source said.
as the Bills (6-5) prepare to host San Francisco (3-8) this weekend.
Though doctors expect the injury to heal on its own, the possibility remains that a screw will have to be surgically inserted to secure the ligament that connects the toe to his foot. There's also a chance Schobel would not play the rest of the season if the Bills fall out of playoff contention.
The two-time Pro Bowl selection and eight-year veteran was initially hurt during a 31-14 win at St. Louis on Sept. 28. Schobel aggravated the injury a week later in a 41-17 loss at Arizona.
The Bills have sorely missed Schobel's presence, having generated eight sacks in the six games since he's been out. Buffalo had 10 sacks in its first five games with Schobel in the lineup.
