Torell Troup: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
A second-round pick in 2010, Troup hasn't appeared in an NFL game since his six appearances in 2011. Major back surgery has limited his ability to return to the field. UPDATE: Troup was cut by the Bills in August.
Troup, who had surgery in December to repair a minor fracture in his spine as well as another pre-existing condition, continues to progress and hopes he'll be ready for the regular season. It's been a long first two years for the defensive tackle, and with Kyle Williams and Marcell Dareus the clear starters in the middle of Buffalo's defensive line, the best Troup is probably hoping for this season is to be at full health come Week 1 and contribute as a reserve player who effectively spells the main guys.
Troup will start as a reserve DT, but the second-year man may have had a better offseason than anyone on the defense and his improvement is opening some eyes in camp. While he won't accrue the type of stats to be IDP worthy, he might just make himself a valuable member of the defensive line rotation this season.
Troup, a rookie second-round draft pick, gives the Bills a nose tackle with run-stuffing ability to plug into their 3-4 defensive scheme. He likely won't start in his first season, but could see the field with some regularity as Kyle Williams' backup.
