NFL: Jets’ Kyle Orton’s injury ‘a huge blow’ to Bills’ offense
The Buffalo Bills’ Kyle Norwood has been ruled out for the rest of the season after suffering a season-ending injury in Sunday’s 34-27 loss to the New Orleans Saints.
Orton left the game with what appeared to be a torn ACL in the first half of the game, a blow to a Bills offense that had a promising start to the season.
The Bills (5-3) have lost six straight and three of their last four games.
The Patriots (4-5) have won five of their past six games.
This was Orton vs. a team that was in a bit of a bind, especially against the Saints.
He’s a big, physical player who can rush the passer, but he was unable to complete the passes he was given against the run, and was hit by a Saints defender in the backfield and knocked out.
This is the kind of blow that could have been avoided with some smart play calls and more savvy coverage.
Buffalo is now in the middle of a three-game losing streak, and this injury is a huge blow to the offense.
Ortons season was over after Week 8, and the Bills are 1-3 on the season when he is on the field.
But with Orton out, the Bills now have to hope the offense recovers from the loss.
Orts injury comes on the heels of an injury to rookie quarterback Connor Cook, who missed two games with a hamstring injury.
