Doug Legursky injury "probably major," per Doug Marrone

Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

Long considered an ideal reserve on the interior offensive line, Legursky could very well end up on the Bills' Injured Reserve list.

In the second half of the Buffalo Bills' 35-13 loss to the Detroit Lions on Thursday evening, reserve guard Doug Legursky was carted off the field after a Lions player fell into his lower leg. The injury appeared serious when it occurred, and Bills head coach Doug Marrone confirmed to reporters after the game that the initial prognosis was not promising on the knee injury.

"Doug doesn't look good," Marrone said late Thursday night. "I'm thinking - without it being evaluated - that it's probably major."

The Bills signed Legursky as a free agent back in May with the idea of adding to a wide open left guard competition. Legursky emerged as one of two candidates for the starting job earlier this summer, but fairly quickly lost out in that bid to Colin Brown. The thought was that Legursky would settle into a reserve role as a guard and center, but he'd played poorly of late, and may have been on the bubble even before his injury.

Now, it's looking like Legursky may end up the latest name to be added to the team's growing long-term injury list - and when that happens, the Bills could be scrambling to figure out what their offensive line depth across the board will look like.
