Bills have one pro bowl player non offensive line on offense.
So unless it’s Shady McCoy the team should be fine but sucks for the player.

I'm calling for Tyrod some kind of head, neck, back injury. He was taking brutal hits in that playoff game. It's not McCoy he's at the Pro Bowl. I don't think it's Benjamin he was hurt but was still able to play.

McCoy and Incognito are at the Pro Bowl so National Media would pick up on that.

I like Dawkins, but outside of him, I don't see anyone not named McCoy being a devastating loss or worthy of such a massive story...unless it's life threatening. (That's some of the speculation on the BBMB).

Benjamin just had surgery so I don't know how he could injure himself again so quickly.

Taylor, Glenn, Clay?... Sounds like whoever it is, it will very much impact our offseason but, again, we don't seem to have Taylor or Glenn in our long term plans. How would a career ending injury affect how we handle them towards the cap?

Also...it sounds bad, so prayers up for whatever is going on to whoever it is.

Also, a press conference? Tweet indicates it will be held by the player.. A retirement?..

Sorry but Adam Schefter would have it by now if it a player was in really bad shape.
Maybe Kyle Williams retires but he is defense.
There are so many insiders with sources it would leak.

The Bills Reporters who know, but can't say, seem to think it's big, as in massive implications to the offseason. Has to mean someone is done for '18 or retiring.

My guess is Charles Clay. Dude has the knees of a 50 year old. Wouldn't surprise me if he seriously injured a knee and is just gonna hang em up.

Sounds like it's officially a career-ending injury. I'm guessing it's a skill position player since the original source is a Fantasy Football site; that would mean it's Tyrod, Benjamin, Zay, or Clay.

Sounds like Benjamin can be ruled out based on John Wawrow's twitter.

If true, I hope that it's not so serious that he can't lead a healthy life post-football.

Tough break (if true) for a good player who played his entire career for the Bills and helped end the drought. As noted I hope this isn't a chronic pain in his life after football.

Seems pretty safe to assume it's true considering all the local media came in and confirmed their initial reports. God that sucks.

Life as a Bills fan ughhh.

At least Groy looks servicable
Football-Only speaking.. There was thought that the Bills might move on from Wood this offseason, as Groy was resigned to be the eventual replacement.

I think any hope of a healthy life post-football for Wood -- like the vast majority of pro football players -- ended long ago. Brutal, brutal sport. Difficult to watch knowing what's down the road for these players.
