A virus developed in the nerves of Buck’s left vocal cord shortly after the Super Bowl in mid-February. While he isn’t expected to miss any time, Buck is still a month away from full recovery.
“And I don’t plan on missing any until I really have to,” Buck said. “I just have to plow through it. I’m not damaging it or hurting it by talking. I’m just waiting for it to fire like it’s supposed to.”
Buck had a scheduled break last week and gets another next weekend.
“I’m just taking it week to week. I’m improving, it’s trending up. It hasn’t slowed me down from talking, just ask my kids.”
