The Buffalo Bills are looking to make some noise in the AFC East this year and they were hoping to have a dominant look on defense. However, 2016 second-round draft pick Reggie Ragland could miss and extended period of time this season after suffering an injury Friday.
Kevin Patra of NFL.com reported that Ragland went down with a non-contact knee injury while chasing newly-signed running back Reggie Bush. There was no extent of injury revealed, but head coach Rex Ryan did say he was “very concerned” about the injury.
Rex Ryan said Reggie Ragland has a knee injury. Not sure of the extent of it. "Very concerned," right now it doesn't appear to be ligaments

Reggie Ragland was slated to be a big part of the Bills’ defense this year, so if he is out for a large amount of time, it will hurt this team. The Bills have already lost first-round pick Shaq Lawson for at least the first half of the 2016 season.
The Bills play the Indianapolis Colts in their first preseason game on Aug. 11 and then open the regular season on Sept. 11 against the Baltimore Ravens.
