Buffalo Bills offensive tackle LaAdrian Waddle was carted off the practice field at Sunday’s practice, unable to put weight on his leg after a rep. Unfortunately, the diagnosis was not what anyone would’ve wanted. Per ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Waddle suffered a torn quadriceps at that practice, and his season is likely over. His torn quad is considered an injury with a 4-5 month recovery time, and that puts his earliest availability in December.
Waddle signed a one year, $2 million deal with the Bills in the 2019 offseason, after three-plus seasons with the New England Patriots. He was in strong consideration for a roster spot, as one of the primary swing tackles alongside Ty Nsekhe.
The Bills are in the middle of a minor offensive line crisis in training camp. Despite signing a slew of veterans during the offseason, injuries have ravaged the depth chart. Waddle’s is the first long-term injury, but Mitch Morse, Spencer Long, Jon Feliciano, and Quinton Spain have all missed practices with some degree of injury through the first two weeks of camp.
