Bills on pace to rival ’07 I-R numbers

Posted by Chris Brown on October 12, 2009 – 2:58 pm

With Kawika Mitchell and Marcus Buggs the next two players to be placed on injured reserve with season ending knee injuries, the Bills are on pace to rival the league-leading injured reserve tally the team had in 2007.

Two seasons ago there was an inordinate number of season ending injuries. Buffalo had 17 players on injured reserve by the end of that campaign.

With Mitchell and Buggs headed to that list the Bills will have 10 players on injured reserve heading into Week 6 of the regular season with 11 games left to play. There is no rhyme or reason to when injuries happen, but that’s a lot of season left in a sport as violent as football to suffer other serious injuries.

Here’s the list of Bills players currently on injured reserve, not counting Buggs and Mitchell.
RB Justise Hairston (ACL)
CB Leodis McKelvin (fibula)
CB Lydell Sargeant (ACL)
OL Brad Butler (ACL)
C Marvin Philip (knee)
DE Jermaine McGhee (unknown)
TE Derek Schouman (knee-torn meniscus)
DE Marcus Smith (unknown)
