IDP Woes: Bills LB Kiko Alonso will miss 2014 season with torn ACL

This isn’t the offseason for linebackers. Yet another top tier LB has fallen to injury that will end his 2014 season. Buffalo Bills star second year linebacker Kiko Alonso suffered a torn ACL that will require seven to nine months recovery time.

Alonso erupted onto the NFL and IDP scene as a rookie in 2013, and his name was quickly added to the list of elite linebackers. This news is rough for Buffalo fans and for fantasy IDP owners, and Kiko joins Navorro Bowman, Sean Lee, Sean Weatherspoon, and Jon Beason on the list of star linebackers missing some or all of the 2014 season due to injury or suspension.

I’ve had Alonso ranked as the #6 fantasy linebacker for the 2014 season and he’s been consistently going off the board in the top 10 in the Getting Defensive IDP Mocks. Rough news in the IDP world.
