Bills GM: LB Kiko Alonso's knee injury 'may be significant'
The Bills fear that LB Kiko Alonso has suffered a torn ACL and is in danger of missing the 2014 season, according to NFL.com.
A season ago, rookie linebacker Kiko Alonso was one of the bright spots on a 6-10 Bills team. Now the organization is concerned that Alonso has suffered a torn ACL and is in danger of missing the 2014 season, according to NFL.com.
"We have learned tonight that Kiko Alonso injured his knee while working out in Oregon," Bill general manager Doug Whaley said in a statement. "We do not have the details at this point, but early indications are that it may be significant."
Obviously, that's bad news, especially given that Alonso ranked as the ninth-best inside linebacker in the league last season, according to ProFootballFocus.com, just behind Sean Lee (whose 2014 season ended before it began) and Luke Kuechly.
Shortly after the May NFL Draft, Jim Monos, the Bills director of player personnel, said of the team's first three draft picks -- wide receiver Sammy Watkins, offensive tackle Cyrus Kouandjio and Brown: "You know, you look at your haul with those three picks ... coming out of that you felt really excited. Our philosophy: Your first three rounds are starters or considerable contributors and we feel like we got those."
And Brown may be thrust into that role much sooner than expected.
