Why Chandler and Gilmore sat out

Posted by Chris Brown on August 29, 2014 – 8:24 am

In the preseason finale Thursday almost all the starters opened the game on offense and defense. There were however a couple of missing pieces from the lineups on each side of the ball. The offense was missing their starting tight end and left guard. The defense was missing their starting cornerback opposite Leodis McKelvin. Here’s why.

Scott Chandler was reported by the team to have a knee injury. Meanwhile Stephon Gilmore was reported to have a groin injury. The severity of each injury is not known and it’s presumed that both injuries were sustained in practice during the week.

Rookie LB Randell Johnson also suffered an ankle injury. He was a game time decision Thursday and tested it pre-game, but could not go.

WR T.J. Graham also came out of the game with an ankle injury.

LB Johnson surprised by Bills pick

Posted by Chris Brown on May 11, 2014 – 12:29 am

He didn’t have much pre-draft interaction with the Buffalo Bills so late on day three of the 2014 NFL draft, Florida Atlantic LB Randell Johnson was caught off guard when he became Buffalo first of two seventh round picks.

“To tell you the truth, I didn’t expect this,” said Johnson. “I don’t really know anything about Buffalo at all so I was surprised. I was just surprised Buffalo picked me up. I’ve been talking to the Seahawks mostly the whole weekend and the 49ers and the Dolphins, so I was expecting them to call me. But once I got the call I was just excited. Man my dream came true. I’m just going to live it up.”

At 6-2 245 pounds Johnson ran an impressive 4.6 at his pro day.
