Alonso Tears ACL, Out for 2014 Season
Orchard Park, NY (WBEN) Bills General Manager Doug Whaley says Kiko Alonso will miss the 2014 season with a torn ACL.
“We have updated information regarding Kiko Alonso,” said Whaley in a team statement. “Unfortunately he suffered a torn ACL in his left knee and will most likely miss the 2014 season. He will be scheduled for surgery in the near future and begin a rehabilitation program at the appropriate time. We feel badly for Kiko because he has worked very hard this offseason in preparation for the upcoming season, but we look forward to his return with his style of play that made him one of the league’s outstanding rookies in 2013.”
Alonso was the leading tackler on the Bills last season.
He suffered the injury during a personal workout in Oregon.
