The hits keep coming for a Bills defense that needs some good news.
General manager Buddy Nix said Wednesday that defensive end Mark Anderson will miss “significant time,” with a knee injury.
“We don’t know exactly how long it’ll be yet,” Nix said, via the team’s official website. “We should know by tonight or first thing in the morning how long it’ll be, but we do know that he’s out right now.”
Anderson injured his knee last week in San Francisco, and he’s seeing Dr. James Andrews today to determine the severity of the injury.
“He’s seeing a doctor today and we’ll know more about that after today, and we should know within reason how long a time we’re talking about,” Nix said.
The Bills have allowed 97 points the last two games, leading Nix to call for more urgency from that side of the ball.
The Bills may have to make a roster move regardless, as they have just three ends on the roster now, and three healthy defensive tackles, as Spencer Johnson did not make the trip out West after a Week Four ankle injury.
