Stephon Gilmore didn't go clubbing this weekend, and it was everything he thought it would be.
For the first time this season, the Buffalo Bills' No. 1 cornerback played without the club-like wrap that he was forced to wear the last couple weeks following wrist surgery.
Instead, Gilmore sported a wrist guard in the Bills' loss to the New Orleans Saints Sunday, and it didn't take long for Gilmore to get comfortable.
“I got my hands on receivers so I felt good," Gilmore said Sunday, via BuffaloBills.com. "It was the doctor’s choice to let me go without the club. Once he told me, I was happy and felt like myself.”
According to the team's website, Gilmore is expected to wear the wrist guard "for a bit moving forward," however long that means.
Gilmore missed the first five games with the injury and has seen an increase in playing time over the last three weeks. He's finally back to full-go, and being able to use his fingers again is certainly a major step in his recovery.
