Buffalo, NY – Buffalo Bills owner Ralph Wilson is home recovering from a broken hip.

His wife Mary Wilson, who appeared at the University at Buffalo news conference Tuesday, to deliver a $1 million gift to the school, told reporters her husband is hoping to attend next week's home game against New England.

"I'm hoping that he will feel confident enough to be here because he wants to be here," said Wilson.

Mary Wilson said her husband fell and broke his hip. A rod and a couple of screws were put into his hip.

Last weekend, the Wilson's stayed at their home and watched the Bills comeback against the Raiders.

Wilson said her husband really enjoyed the excitement of the win.

"It was just very exciting. I mean we felt like we were apart of it. He said 'I don't know how many more of these I can do'. But you know the man is amazing. Buffalo is lucky to have him. I'm lucky to have him. He's going to be around for a long time," said Wilson.

Mrs. Wilson says her 92-year-old husband is walking everyday with a walker and moving around.

Reporters also asked her to respond on the upcoming lease negotiations between the Bills and Erie County, but Mary Wilson said she will leave that comment up to her husband.
