Report: Bills ILB Kiko Alonso Tears ACL

Kevin Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter and various other media outlets, it appears as though the Buffalo Bills have suffered a major loss: second-year ILB Kiko Alonso, who Mike Pettine coached last season, has suffered a torn ACL:

It hasn't been a good offseason injury-wise for inside linebackers, which is why teams can never take their depth for granted. Alonso's injury is a little more noteworthy to the Browns because of the first-round pick that Cleveland acquired for Buffalo this past May (which Buffalo used to select Sammy Watkins). The Bills have traditionally had a high first-round pick, and while one injury certainly won't cripple their season, it certainly doesn't help them.
