The Bills will already be without starting DE Dwan Edwards for the foreseeable future with a severe hamstring injury suffered last week. It looks as though another valuable veteran will also be out for a spell.
Head coach Chan Gailey indicated that LB Reggie Torbor is not expected to play this week or any time soon.
“It’ll be a long time,” Gailey said when referencing both Torbor and Edwards.
Torbor has played an important jack-of-all-trades role lining up at both inside and outside linebacker in the Bills base defense and subpackages.
“It’s a big loss for us,” said Gailey. “There are going to have to be some people that step up and play a lot of snaps for us.”
Bryan Scott and Akin Ayodele are expected to step in for Torbor in nickel and base for his ILB duties. Then Aaron Maybin and two rookies in Antonio Coleman and Arthur Moats could be spelling Torbor on the outside.
