Cyrus Kouandjio put together his best season as a pro in 2016. He made five starts and performed admirably at left tackle. That’s what makes his hip injury and subsequent surgery Wednesday so unfortunate.
According to Bills GM Doug Whaley, Kouandjio is expected back by training camp.
“It just came up,” Whaley told Buffalobills.com. “It was a non-football injury where it happened. It had nothing to do with football. He wasn’t doing any football related activity. He’ll be ready for (training) camp.”
What’s unfortunate is Kouandjio will miss all the reps through OTAs and minicamp, in a new offensive system no less and with a new O-line coach.
Hopefully he can pick up and apply things on the field quickly in camp.
Knowing that Jordan Mills is an impending free agent and Seantrel Henderson’s medical condition still presents challenges, the Kouandjio injury presents more uncertainty at the position.
It would appear that offensive tackle could easily become an even more realistic consideration in the draft now.
