Buffalo Bills tackle LaAdrian Waddle’s season likely over with torn quad

New, comments

An awful break for the potential swing tackle.

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.
