Morning take: Updating Bills injuries
By James Walker
Here are the most interesting stories Tuesday morning in the AFC East:
Morning take: The Bills have been able to overcome injuries all season. But these two leaders will be hard to replace as Buffalo goes through a key stretch in its season.
- Jay Skurski of the Buffalo News reports Bills defensive lineman Kyle Williams (foot) is expected to miss the rest of the season and kicker Rian Lindell (shoulder) will miss 4-6 weeks.
Morning take: The Giants have a better record and beat the Patriots, which is something the Jets haven’t done. But it’s a long season and plenty of football left to play.
- Gary Myers of the New York Daily News believes the Giants (6-2) are better than the Jets (5-3).
Morning take: It’s strange that MCLs have been the injury of choice for New England. Tight end Aaron Hernandez and linebacker Jerod Mayo also missed time this season with the same injury.
- ESPN's Adam Schefter reports New England Patriots linebacker Brandon Spikes has a strained MCL.
Morning take: That sounds nice. But Henne is going to be a free agent coming off season-ending shoulder surgery. Add in the fact a new head coach will take over, and it's virtually a certainty Miami will be looking for a new quarterback.
- Miami Dolphins quarterback Chad Henne tells Ben Volin of the Palm Beach Post that he's "gung-ho" about being a Dolphin.
