Posluszny down for the night

Buffalo middle linebacker Paul Posluszny was having a nice night for the Bills as they continue to give the Patriots all they can handle (and more) in Foxborough.  He had a team-high six first-half tackles and was plenty capable in coverage down the middle of the field against the Patriots’ crossing routes.

But now his night is over.  It was just announced in the press box (and likely to the national TV audience) that Posluszny is done for the game with an arm injury.

Marcus Buggs, a second-year linebacker out of Vanderbilt is Posluszny’s backup.

So with Posluszny out, Patriot Jerod Mayo still yet to return from the right knee injury he suffered in the first half, and Bears middle linebacker already done for the season with his dislocated wrist, it just hasn’t been a good Week One for middle linebackers.

    He was not injured in week 1, but lets no forget about Stewart Bradley.

    Not even week 1 it hasnt been a good season for middle linebackers. Dont forget Stewar Bradely is out for the year too. The football media that I usually hate were making him out to be one of the last true middle linebackers and the next big thing at the postion. Add in stars like Urlacker and future stars like Paul Posluszny and Jerod Mayo and its been very bad year for the Mike Man.

    if he could tackle without getting ran over & landed on, he probably wouldnt break his bones quite as much. can’t believe buffalo fans love this guy so much. what a crock.
