Buffalo Bills rumors: Kiko Alonso replacement won't come from outside organization

The Buffalo Bills, with just about two months to go until the beginning of the regular season, are in quite the bind after losing star linebacker Kiko Alonso. On Tuesday, Alonso went down with a knee injury while working out in Oregon, and on Wednesday, the team sent out a release stating that he had suffered an ACL tear and that he will likely miss the season.

With that, as with any time a top star is out, the questions start to arise as to whether or not the team could look toward an available veteran to fill the vacant slot.

However, as Ian Rapoport reports, the Bills will choose not to go that route, and will instead promote from within.


Of course, this is more than capable of being pulled off, especially with play makers they have on the roster such as Nigel Bradham and Keith Rivers.

To that point, Chris Smith of the Bills’ official website even stated on Wednesday that it’s more than likely that Bradham will get the nod over Rivers.
