The Bills’ defensive line has lost one of its starters to a season-threatening injury.

Defensive end Alex Carrington suffered a quadriceps injury in Sunday’s loss at the Jets, the club disclosed on its Twitter feed on Monday, as did Joe Buscaglia of 550 AM in Buffalo. The injury appears likely to end Carrington’s season, coach Doug Marrone said, according to Chris Brown of

Carrington has started at left defensive end in each of Buffalo’s first three games and has played at least 63 percent of the snaps in all three contests.

“He’s done everything we’ve asked him to do. It’s tough. He’s a great player and a great man,” Marrone said of Carrington on Monday, according to the club.

With Carrington out, former Seahawks lineman Alan Branch could see more playing time, Marrone said.

The 26-year-old Carrington (6-5, 301) has notched 10 tackles this season. He is in his fourth NFL season. He played collegiately at Arkansas State.

    Mario, Carrington and Darius were all knocked out with leg injuries on questionable plays. The Jets are a dirty team. 3 Dlinemen knocked out with leg injuries should never happen.

    The Bills are perennially the most injured team in the history of the human race.
    Why is that OBD?
