ORCHARD PARK – Matt Milano, a starting linebacker for the Buffalo Bills, is out for the season after suffering a broken fibula during Sunday’s loss to the New York Jets.
According to the Buffalo News, Milano had surgery to repair a broken fibula.
Milano was carted off the field with 1:22 left in the game after having an awkward landing while attempting to make a tackle.
The Boston College alum was second on the Bills defense with 78 tackles, and tied for the team-lead with three interceptions, along with being tied in second in the NFL with six total takeaways prior to being injured.
Milano’s back-up is Corey Thompson, an undrafted rookie out of Louisiana State University (LSU), who has only one tackle in one game played this season.
