Draft Scout Torell Troup News
08/24/12 - DT Torell Troup, who has been battling back issues all summer, was placed on reserve/injured by the Bills Thursday.
01/11/12 - DT Torell Troup is hoping that surgery to repair a back disk problem and a small spinal fracture will allow him to finally reach his potential. Injuries have frustrated the 2010 second-round pick out of Central Florida. If he can get healthy, he'll help Buffalo's 28th-ranked run defense alongside Kyle Williams and Marcell Dareus. "The doctor said it went really well," Troup said of his surgery. "I've had the disk problem since college, and the other little freak thing (the fracture) happened to my back this year. It happened the last preseason game." Troup tried to play through his pain until going on injured reserve in early December.
