Bills rookie linebacker Reggie Ragland to have surgery for torn ACL

High hopes for linebacker Reggie Ragland will likely have to be shelved until next year as the Buffalo Bills announced the rookie will undergo surgery for a torn ACL and is expected to miss the 2016 season.

Ragland, a second-round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, suffered the injury in practice on Friday and there was hope that further tests would reveal it Andrew Hawkins Jersey wasn’t a season-ending injury. However, the team now expects Ragland to miss his entire rookie season due to the partially torn ligament that will require surgery to repair.

Perhaps the most recognizable fullback in the NFL, Kuhn has spent nine of his 10 seasons in Green Bay after entering the league as an undrafted free agent from Shippensburg. Kuhn spent his early years participating mostly on special teams, but Austin Pasztor Jersey became the Packers’ featured fullback around the time Aaron Rodgers replaced Brett Favre under center.

Kuhn went on to become one of the league’s most versatile players, blocking for 1,000-yard rushers like Ryan Grant and Eddie Lacy while establishing himself as a capable goal-line runner and backfield receiver. He led all fullbacks with 12 total touchdowns between 2010 and ’11, and went on to earn four Pro Bowl nods and a first-team All-Pro selection.

Cam Newton got really excited about an INT … too excited.

Ravens running back Terrance West lived up to the preseason hype.

Bills offensive coordinator Greg Roman credits Taylor’s effort as the reason for his success and the team’s confidence in him moving forward.

“In order to take those steps it has to come from the player,” Roman said via the team’s website. “The player has to embrace the challenge of self-examination, self-awareness. He has done that A-plus, plus. I couldn’t be happier with his commitment to that process. He’s improving in every aspect of his game. I’m very happy with how he approaches his job.”

Head coach Rex Ryan believes Taylor’s talent and skill set will serve the team well moving forward.

“I see the confidence that his teammates have in him and we think we’re going to get it done with Tyrod at quarterback,” Ryan said. “He can beat you with his arm, with his deep ball, his accuracy, and he can beat you with his legs, so I think those are some great things. We think that we’ve got a really good one there. We’ve got a fine, outstanding quarterback.”
