One year after enduring the fifth unthinkable tragedy in his young life, Marcell Dareus today is in a better place.

Mentally, spiritually, physically and -- in the category “It’s just a game” -- competitively for the Buffalo Bills.

And how he somehow, once again, has come through with his good-natured personality piercing through the pain.
