Bills Lose Wood AND McKinney for season with injuries

Posted on November 23, 2009 by Patrick Moran

Perry Fewell just got finished addressing the media following yesterday’s hard fought and heartbreaking three point loss at Jacksonville.

Not only is Eric Wood done for the season, but so is Seth McKinney.  McKinney injured his knee against Jacksonville.  He was starting at left guard after Andy Levitre slid over to replace injured tackle Demetrius Bell.

The Bills will now have to make to roster moves this week on the offensive line as they only have five able bodies there for this Sunday’s game against Miami.  Christian Gaddis will very likely be promoted from the practice squad to take one spot, and the club will look at other prospects to occupy the other.

Marshawn Lynch (shoulder) and John McCargo (calf) were also hurt Sunday and will be evaluated on a day to day basis.

Seeing Wood come off the field in such agonizing pain was tough for Fewell to handle.

“That young man was in pain,” Fewell said.  “When I walked on the field he was in severe pain and that was not a pretty site to see.  You never want to see that as a football coach.  It’s part of the game but as a human being you never want to see something like happen.”

Fewell said they’ll immediately begin the process of evaluating the offensive line.

“There’s a process that we go through when you have a season ending injury like that.  We’ll definitely bring some people in and we’ll make some moves and we’ll announce them as they occur.”

Also, although its highly expected, Fewell didn’t officially announce today that Ryan Fitzpatrick would be starting again at quarterback this week against the Dolphins and won’t make anything official before Wednesday.  However, rest assured Trent Edwards will be spending his second consecutive healthy Sunday on the bench.
