Season over for Nelson
Updated Sep 10, 2012 at 2:28 PM EDT

Buffalo (WKBW.com) ESPN is reporting that Bills wide receiver David Nelson suffered a torn ACL in his right knee on Sunday, and will miss the rest of the season as as result of that injury. The extent of the injury was revealed after Nelson underwent an MRI on Monday morning.

.... cont'd article here: wkbw.com/sports/buffalo-bills - Report: Season over for Nelson, Jackson to miss time with knee injury

that sux... anyway...

Donald Jones just became a watch.

TJ Graham (healthy scratch wk1) now has a heartbeat.

Ah man.. hate to see that. The guy has a world of talent and actually had the chance to show it a few games last year for them.

Big loss for Buffalo... Fitz's stock just took a slight hit (although it's not exactly high coming off the Jet game...).

Maybe more targets for Stevie if his groin holds up? Hmm..

Yea, thats a tough situation - I expect the Bills to pick up the pieces and get it going but its going to be a little fluid in the WR dept.

Tough break for Buffalo.

Anyone think Scott Chandler may become more of a factor now, or is he still just a short yardage outlet?

This might be a good thing for Buffalo, Nelson wasn't that great anyway. Watching him last season the guy seemed slow and not very athletic, might as well just use a TE or try out another WR and hope he's actually good

Its a bump for Chandler.

Id like to see Dickerson get a run out in that role (which he wont, mores the pity)... but then again after the other night, i'd ideally prefer to be rooting for an entirely different team if truth be told ... :F

c'mon, jam.. buck-up :wink:

Always thought Dickerson would emerge in Houston with what they were attempting with him.. then saw him in the pre-season and thought the bills might've gotten a nice little gem with the cheap signing. Did he even see any snaps last weekend?.. someone has to use him sometime, goodness.

Chandler doesn't exist unless Buffalo makes it within 10 yards of the endzone.

Took a flier on him last year after a hot start... didn't end too great lol.

Dickerson got a whopping two snaps last week.

Not sure what he got this week, but if he doesnt hit double digits with Jones gone then he likely wont this year.

@infnthub: Youre absolutely right on the money as Chandler took both his passes within 10yds of the endzone ... One went 43yds from his own 10 and 1 TD inside their 10 :)

FWIW Chandler has 11 targets over the past two games (5.5 avg), which is a bit better than 2.8 targets per game he avg'd last year.

Like i say hes in for a bump. Doesnt mean youre starting him next week or rushing for the WW, just said he was in for a bump with Nelson out

Id like to see Gailey use either of them as the mismatch across the middle (as lets be honest at 6'5" Nelson's there for his height not his YAC) as theyd both fit the bill (no pun, at 6'2" for DD and 6'7" for Chandler) and Dickerson at least would offer more potential for breaking a tackle or two
