Bills place TE Scott Chandler on IR

12/24/2012

As expected, the Buffalo Bills have placed starting tight end Scott Chandler on injured reserve, meaning he is done for the season.

Chandler injured his knee Sunday's 24-10 loss to the Miami Dolphins and was carted off the field. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Chandler has a torn ACL.

That means Chandler has a long rehab process ahead. The usual recovery time from ACL surgery is at least nine months, which means Chandler may not be ready until next August or September.
