The Buffalo Bills were dealt yet another stiff blow today as they placed veteran defensive end Chris Kelsay on Injured Reserve. This will have the Bills with only a four-man rotation this weekend versus the St. Louis Rams at best. Those four men are Mario Williams, Kyle Moore, Shawne Merriman and maybe defensive end/tackle hybrid Alex Carrington. There have also been rumblings of linebacker Arthur Moats taking some reps with his hand in the ground, as that’s the position he played in college.
Kelsay has missed three of the last four games with a torn ligament in his neck, a freak injury that occurred in practice in November. He tried his best to return and play against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 12, but he could not finish the game.
Though he doesn’t have the captain’s patch anymore, Kelsay is still seen as a leader on and off the field. For Kelsay, it’s an unfortunate circumstance: after missing four games last season, he will miss seven of the last eight games this season. His 2012 season ends with 18 tackles, including four for loss and two sacks.
I can only hope that Chris Kelsay could bounce back for 2013 and be better than ever, but that’s just my take. What do you think? Let me know!
