Bills lose two draft picks for the season

Two Bills rookies won’t get a chance to develop during yet another rebuilding year for the organization.

Wide receiver Marcus Easley (knee) and linebacker Danny Batten (shoulder) were placed on injured reserve Sunday, ending their season.  Easley was a fourth-round pick out of UConn that had a legitimate chance for playing time.  Batten, a sixth-round pick, was converting from defensive end at South Dakota State to outside linebacker.

The Bills were extremely unlucky with injuries last season, and 2010 has unfortunately started down the same path.
