Bills confirm Alonso lost for season

Niagara Gazette — Buffalo Bills general manager Doug Whaley confirmed Wednesday what had been previously reported by several media sources: linebacker Kiko Alonso has torn the ACL in one of his knees and is lost for the 2014 National Football League season.

In a statement released late Wednesday morning by the Bills, Whaley says: "We have updated information regarding Kiko Alonso from yesterday. 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 a nominee for the NFL's Defensive Rookie of the Year last season.
