Bills waived DT Torell Troup.
The No. 41 pick of the 2010 draft, Troup missed all of 2012 with a back injury he compared to Johnny Knox's (not good). Injuries have limited him to just 21 career appearances. Sat, Aug 31, 2013 04:32:00 PM

Bills DT Torell Troup compared his 2012 back injury to the one that ended Johnny Knox's career.

Troup says he's fully recovered now, but claimed it was the "same injury" that did in Knox. Troup is now "regularly" doing squats in the weight room and still has a chance to return as an effective NFL player. Specifically, the back injury has been called a "thoracic-lumbar junction fracture dislocation."

Bills DT Torell Troup says he is over the back issues that landed him on injured reserve for the entire 2012 season.

"The doctors told me everything is all pretty much healed up, so I’m going to keep pushing forward and keep working out... I can just totally feel a difference from camp," said Troup. The 326-pound behemoth is hoping to get a chance at nose tackle in new DC Mike Pettine's attacking defense. Troup has appeared in just 21 games over his first three seasons and will be playing out the final year of his rookie contract in 2013.

Bills placed NT Torell Troup (back) on injured reserve, ending his season.

The 2010 second-round pick had yet to see preseason action, as he was struggling to get through practices following offseason spinal fusion surgery. Coach Chan Gailey conceded earlier in the week that Troup isn't "anywhere near 100 percent." The Bills will go with Spencer Johnson and Dwan Edwards as backup defensive tackles.

Bills GM Buddy Nix expects NT Torell Troup (back surgery) to be a full participant in Buffalo's first training camp session Thursday.

"When he left here (in the spring) we watched him hitting the sled and doing all those things and it looked like he was ready to go," Nix said. A second-round pick in 2010, Troup played just 94 snaps before landing on injured reserve in Week 11 last season. He's ticketed for a rotational role.

Bills NT Torrell Troup (back surgery) is aiming for full medical clearance by training camp.

"We want to be ready for camp and maybe even a couple of weeks into camp," said Troup. "We don't want to rush anything and come back too soon." Troup has encountered no setbacks thus far and hopes to increase his running during OTAs next week. He'll play a reserve role in 2012.

Bills NT Torrell Troup (back surgery) won't be allowed to lift weights until spring.

Troup underwent Dec. 16 surgery to repair a small spinal fracture in his lower back and also clean up a disk problem that goes back to college. The 41st pick in the 2010 draft was a bit player in six games in 2011 after playing just 18 snaps per game as a rookie. He'll be questionable for the start of training camp.

Bills placed NT Torell Troup on injured reserve with a fracture in his spine, ending his season.

He'll have surgery in late December. The Bills have now lost two nose tackles for the season in Troup and Kyle Williams (foot). Troup, a second-round pick last season, was playing in a rotational role thanks to consistent back troubles. He had just eight tackles in six games on the year.
Wed, Nov 30, 2011 10:39:00 AM

Coach Chan Gailey said that NT Torell Troup (back) might end up on injured reserve.

Troup has appeared in just six games as a rotational player this year due to ongoing problems with his back. The 2010 second-round pick was expected to play a major role after the Bills lost Kyle Williams for the season. "Torell's back acted up Saturday night and then it really locked up Sunday morning," Gailey said Monday.

Bills second-year NT Torrell Troup has added 11 pounds of muscle this offseason.

The Bills came into the offseason in desperate need of interior linemen, and Troup can certainly help. Now at 325 pounds, the 2010 second-rounder will vie for time behind Kyle Williams and Marcell Dareus. The Bills' run defense should be improved.
Mon, Jul 18, 2011 08:42:00 AM

Torrell Troup is expected to be the first defensive lineman off the bench when the Bills use 4-3 looks in their hybrid defense.

Kyle Williams, Marcell Dareus, and Dwan Edwards will be the starters. Troup, the No. 2 nose tackle behind Williams, would come on to play nose in the 4-3 with Williams likely playing end or three-technique tackle. On paper at least, this monster lineup appears to give the Bills a good chance of finally stopping the run.
Mon, May 16, 2011 01:10:00 PM

Bills rookie NT Torrell Troup has been moved into the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Bengals.

Smallish Kyle Williams had been lining up at nose tackle, but Troup is better suited to the pivotal spot in the Bills' new 3-4 scheme. If he sticks as a starter, Troup will upgrade Buffalo's embarrassing run defense.

Bills signed rookie NT Torrell Troup, the No. 41 overall pick, to a four-year contract with a $4.61 million max value.

A high-upside and at-times immovable force for the UCF Golden Knights, Troup is the Bills' nose tackle of the future. This year, he'll share time with smallish Kyle Williams while attempting to upgrade a woeful run defense.
Wed, Jul 28, 2010 03:09:00 PM

Bills selected Central Florida DT Torrell Troup with the No. 41 overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft.

A ready-made two-gapper, Troup's primary task in George O'Leary's Golden Knights defense was to tie up blockers. He did so as a three-year starter, earning second-team All-C USA honors as a senior despite just 35 tackles (5 for a loss) and two sacks. The rest of the conference obviously saw him as a force. In Buffalo, he'll compete for snaps on the nose with smallish Kyle Williams. Troup has the size Williams lacks at just over 6-foot-2 and nearly 320 pounds.
