Football season is upon us. After the Baltimore Ravens and Denver Broncos opened the NFL regular season Thursday night, the rest of the league is ready to take its turn.
No one should be more welcome to see the end of the NFL preseason more than the Buffalo Bills, whose training camp and preseason included injuries to top cornerback Stephon Gilmore, top defensive playmaker and free safety Jairus Byrd, top wide receiver Stevie Johnson and a possible career-ending injury to quarterback Kevin Kolb.
While Johnson is ready for the start of the season, the rest will all be on the sidelines (Byrd is listed as doubtful on the team’s injury report) when the Bills take the field against their AFC East rivals, the New England Patriots, on Sunday at 1 p.m. ET.
