Raiders released OT Ed Wang with an injury settlement.

Wang was just a camp body and didn't have a real shot at making the 53-man roster had he even been healthy. RB Rashawn Jackson (hip) and DT Jamie Cumbie (undisclosed) were also released with injury settlements.

Raiders signed T/G Ed Wang, formerly of the Bills.

A fifth-round pick in 2010, Wang was out of the league last season after failing miserably in two training camps and six spot appearances during his rookie year. The Raiders figure to try Wang at guard after the Bills misdiagnosed him as a tackle. He'll be an extreme long shot to crack the final 53.

Bills waived OT Ed Wang.

The Bills poorly evaluated Wang from the get-go. An undrafted free agent type of talent, the former Virginia Tech Hokie was Buffalo's fifth-round pick in 2010 and they even gave him practice reps at left tackle. He has guard kind of athleticism, and figures to pass through waivers unclaimed.

Bills coach Chan Gailey estimates that rookie OT Ed Wang is still "a few weeks away" from shedding the protective cast on his surgically repaired thumb.

Said Gailey, "It’ll be a little while before he gets back 100 percent, but right now we’re sitting at 80 (percent) and that’s better than 60 (percent) and that’s where he was." Wang has been practicing with the team since the start of the season, so don't look for conditioning to hold him back. He looks set to serve as a backup tackle when he returns.

Bills T Ed Wang (thumb surgery) is expected to miss 4-8 weeks.

Coach Chan Gailey confirmed that the surgery was a success, and said that in a best case scenario Wang would be back in a month. Wang is the first Chinese-American player in the NFL.

Bills T Ed Wang underwent surgery on his thumb Tuesday and will be sidelined indefinitely, according to the AP.

The rookie tackle suffered the injury on Monday. Coach Chan Gailey isn't sure yet how long the fifth-round pick will be sidelined. He was competing for a backup tackle spot, running as Buffalo's third-string left tackle behind projected starter Demetrius Bell and athletic backup Jamon Meredith.

Updating a previous item, Profootballtalk.com reports that Bills rookie OT Ed Wang suffered a hand injury Monday -- not an injury to his right leg.

The Buffalo News jumped the gun when it announced that Wang's injury was to his leg. Coach Chan Gailey did reveal that Wang might need surgery and could be out "quite a few weeks," so it sounds like he fractured the hand.

Bills rookie OT Ed Wang suffered a significant lower right leg injury Monday that is expected to require surgery.

Coach Chan Gailey revealed that Wang would miss "quite a few weeks." The injury is not related to the left high ankle sprain Wang suffered during OTAs, but it sounds like this could be something that might jeopardize his season.
Mon, Aug 2, 2010 09:43:00 PM

Bills rookie OT Ed Wang (high ankle sprain) has resumed practicing.

The injury was thought to be major when Wang was carted off the field in OTAs, but the Bills lucked out. The first Chinese-American player in NFL history opened camp as the second-team left tackle with Demetrius Bell (ACL surgery) being held out.
Thu, Jul 29, 2010 11:17:00 PM

Bills coach Chan Gailey said Wednesday that rookie OT Ed Wang's high ankle sprain was not as serious as initially believed.

"His injury was not as serious as maybe we had first thought," Gailey said "(Wang) has a chance to be back by the last minicamp." This is good news for a Bills team working with perhaps the worst offensive line in the league.
Wed, Jun 9, 2010 03:15:00 PM

An MRI confirmed that Ed Wang has suffered a high ankle sprain, a source tells Profootballtalk.com.

The Bills can breathe a sigh of relief. There were rumors that Wang had suffered a devastating kind of injury that would end his season, but a high ankle sprain should be healed by the time camp rolls around. The fifth-round rookie is expected to serve as a backup tackle this season.
Mon, Jun 7, 2010 09:09:00 AM

Coach Chan Gailey is expected to update the severity of rookie OT Ed Wang's injury on Wednesday.

Gailey won't talk to the media until Wednesday, but these things have a way of leaking out quicker. Wang and the Bills are holding their breath that it's only a bad ankle sprain.
Sun, Jun 6, 2010 05:42:00 PM

Chan Gailey indicated that the injury sustained by rookie OT Ed Wang in Saturday's practice could jeopardize his season.

"I hope we haven't lost him for the season, that's what I'm hoping," said Gailey. ESPN's Adam Schefter categorized it as a knee injury, though Profootballtalk.com and the National Football Post both have sources insisting it's a high ankle sprain. We should have an update on Sunday.
Sat, Jun 5, 2010 06:43:00 PM

The early diagnosis on Bills rookie OT Ed Wang's leg injury is a high ankle sprain, according to Profootballtalk.com.

Though the MRI results won't be available until Sunday, the early word is a relief. Wang will miss the rest of the offseason program regardless, but he now has a shot to be back on the field for the start of training camp.
