Grade 1-2 pec sprain doesn’t need surgery so got lucky, really. But could be out until after Pats game. 

real lucky it wasn't a tear. Pec injuries are no joke and take 4-ever.

The Broncos are loading up their practice squad with proven NFL talent.

The newest addition is veteran inside linebacker Nigel Bradham. An eight-year starter with the Buffalo Bills and Philadelphia Eagles, Bradham has been in town going through the coronavirus testing protocols. He is expected to be signed to the Broncos’ practice squad on Monday.

I'd expect Levi and Milano to land on IR for 3 weeks. Imagine Deon Lacey and Cam Lewis are elevated. Will be interesting to see if they sign anyone of interest to the Practice Squad following those moves.

I'd love to think just plugging in Dodson is the answer, but the dude's a rookie. Why are some people so sold on that?

 

There has to be a decent option somewhere out there......

Maybe worth a try but a UDFA 4 games into his 1st season in the middle could easily blow up.

He played MLB vs Miami

Cam can’t be elevated anymore for Gameday . They will need to re-sign him, which they can if Levi goes to IR

People are less sold on Klein outside and how Edmunds looks at MLB.

Beane has probably already compiled a list of current free agents and practice squad guys for this situation.  He may also be fielding calls from some of the losing teams that will be having a fire sale.  Other than Houston, it may be a little early for teams to start dumping guys into the trade market but there are at least four other dumpster fire teams out there.

Well, on a brighter note his price tag is falling. But if he can't stay healthy that doesn't matter all that much.

 

Edmunds needs to step up.

Edmunds looked like he was starting to come around yesterday. Hopefully a sign he is getting healthy. 
Milano really is the best LB right now on this team when healthy.

Imo, we are in serious trouble if Edmunds is our best LB out on the field...that being said, I think the Bills need to consider drafting Milano’s replacement in one of the first 2 rounds next draft...As much as I love the guy, he just cannot stay on the field...

Dodson might be ok.   Generally speaking MLB's either have that ability to mirror the RB and anticipate where the ball is going or they do not.

 

People here once compared Edmunds to Brian Urlacher...........and then when he was awful against the run they tried to make excuses about how the 3 year college LB Edmunds needed time to learn the position.  

 

But of course Urlacher wasn't even a LB in college and was playing like an all-pro in the middle immediately as a rookie.

 

You got it or you don't.

 

Julian Stanford was just as good as Edmunds when he had to play for him while Tremaine was out with a concussion too.   No drop off.

 

He is probably clinging to the fringe of the Panthers roster they might be able to re-acquire him for a 7th or something.

Sadly, this brings us to what to do about a 2nd contract. I think Bills have to play their cards close to the vest because he’s not medically reliable. But other teams will entice him with big buck$$..

Yup. Let him go. He is good but can be replaced. 

I would draft another middle linebacker and move Edmunds outside.

Didn't they cut Lewis last week?

They compared him to Urlacher because both are 6'4 or 6'5 with crazy wingspans.

Milano is good, but if he can't stay on the field, he's kind of useless to the team long term.

 

It's also clear to me Edmunds is not the emotional leader the defense needs. Norman proved this yesterday.

 

Bills need to replace Milano with a Daryl Talley/Lorax type leader next offseason.

Yeah they need to find out what they have in Edmunds outside..........the light first turning on for a MLB two and a half years into their career as a starter happens basically never.  

 

Problem is that with the bad shoulder he's not likely to be able to show what he can do as a pass rusher this season........which was what should have been his calling card by now.

 

But still he needs to not be thinking too much on the field because his brain clearly isn't wired for that MLB job.

Yes, he can't come up from the Practice Squad anymore. He has to be signed to the roster. Which is what I was alluding to. It's a "week to week" sprain. But he was on crutches in the locker room - so I doubt it's minor.

Yes, they cut him from the 53 to put Norman on. He then cleared waivers and was signed to our Practice Squad. This makes him ineligible to be called up unless signed to the 53. Which is why I'd expect Levi to go on IR.

Sure, but he never answers the phone because he can’t remember where he left it.
