Torell Troup is aiming to play this upcoming season.

In three seasons, Troup, the 41 stoverall pick of the 2012 NFL Draft, has played in just 21 games. In those games, he has recorded 31 tackles and two passes defensed. Troup has also been hampered by a back injury, which resulted in him missing all of the 2012 season. But, now, Troup has gotten a clean bill of health from medical professionals.

“The doctors told me everything is all pretty much healed up, so I’m going to keep pushing forward and keep working out,” he told The Buffalo News. “Hopefully this offseason goes by fast.”

Troup chose to do his rehab in Buffalo instead of returning to his offseason home in Atlanta. It was a way for him to stay focused, the News reports.

“I spent the whole season here, going to meetings and working out when they’re at practice. I really think that helped just to stay focused,” Troup told the News. “When you go away, you kind of lose focus a little bit for the simple fact you’re not around the team. I got to be around the team the whole year.”

Now, Troup is eager to go out and show the Bills what he can do.

“That’s all I’ve been thinking about. I’m so hungry and so ready to get out on the field, just to have any kind of contact and be a normal player again,” Troup told the News “It’s hard coming to camp knowing I wasn’t ready to go and still trying to go. Now that I know I’m good and I get these couple months to train and be with my teammates, I really can’t wait to get out there.”
