Bills linebacker Kiko Alonso, an essential part of the Bills defense, tore his ACL while working out in Oregon.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported and tweeted this last night.

Bills' GM Dug Whaley said they don't know exactly how it happened, but that it seemed significant. Recovery for this injury is typically 7 to 9 months.
