What a difference two weeks can make for the vaunted Buffalo Bills defense.
First, the Bills lost Pro Bowl cornerback Tre’Davious White to a season-ending Achilles injury, then, playing on a suspect turf surface in London, All-Pro middle linebacker Matt Milano suffered a serious knee injury and stalwart defensive tackle DaQuan Jones injured his pectoral muscle during a disappointing loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Today’s edition of Buffalo Rumblinks brings you the latest news on Milano and Jones’ injuries, with both needing to undergo surgery.
Defense preparing for life without Jones, Milano
Buffalo Bills All-Pro linebacker Matt Milano and defensive tackle DaQuan Jones both will require surgery after suffering injuries in Sunday’s loss, according to head coach Sean McDermott. While McDermott didn’t provide a timetable for their recoveries, the fact they both needed surgery means that, most likely, the two will be sidelined for a significant chunk of time, if not the rest of the season.
