Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)GM Doug Whaley released a statement shortly after the news broke, saying, "we do not have the details at this point, but early indications are that it may be significant." If so, it would be a devastating development for both the Bills and the 23-year-old Alonso, who notched a whopping 159 tackles (87 solo) as a rookie.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Alonso might be the rawest out of the rookie group of Brown, Ogletree, Minter, Manti Te'o and Gerald Hodges, but he's probably one of the three most naturally talented players of the group, too. Despite starting just one year at Oregon, Alonso showed enough upside on tape for the Bills to select him in the second round. With Nick Barnett and Kelvin Sheppard no longer in Buffalo, Alonso should find himself a Week 1 starter. Alonso's athleticism and motor allowed him to make big plays at Oregon, and he's especially intriguing for his sack and interception potential after posting 14 tackles for loss and four interceptions in 12 games last year.
