ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Injuries are piling up for the Buffalo Bills, who are searching for a kicker and face losing starting defensive tackle Kyle Williams for the rest of the season.
Coach Chan Gailey says the injury to kicker Rian Lindell’s right shoulder is “not good,” and the team will try out replacements this week. Gailey ruled out Lindell from playing at Dallas on Sunday, but wouldn’t say whether the injury was season-ending.
Lindell was hurt making a diving tackle on Joe McKnight on the second half-opening kickoff return in a 27-11 loss to the Jets on Sunday.
As for Williams, Gailey acknowledges the player could miss the rest of the season with a left foot injury that’s forced him to miss the past three games. Williams will visit a specialist this week.
