The Buffalo Bills were hit with another pair of season-ending injuries in Sunday's woeful 6-3 loss to the Cleveland Browns — to players at the same position, no less. Middle linebacker Kawika Mitchell, who was making his first start with the Bills at the position, and backup Marcus Buggs both will require knee surgery, coach Dick Jauron revealed Monday.
"It's just so disappointing for all of us," Jauron said. "Particularly for the players, but certainly for the team too."
With regular starter Paul Posluszny still not fully recovered from a broken arm suffered in the season opener at New England, the Bills are on to Plan C at the position. With two roster spots soon to be open, Jauron indicated the team will look for help outside the organization.
"We'll clearly be bringing some people in," the coach said. "We'll work out some people, we'll look at some different things."
