The Buffalo Bills are set to kick off training camp this week and already are reportedly facing their first major injury of the season. According to Tom Pelissero, Nyheim Hines suffered a serious knee injury off-site and will now miss the remainder of the season.
The Bills traded for Hines during the season last year and while he didn't have much of a role in the offense, he was the primary returner on kickoffs and punts. He had impressive returns in the regular season finale with two kickoffs returned for touchdowns against the Patriots. Entering this season, Hines was expected to retain that role while also seeing more snaps on offense.
At this point of the offseason, options are limited for the Bills and they are unlikely to find a player who can replace both roles that Nyheim Hines was set to cover. However, the team has appeared to already get to work on finding a replacement as they reportedly will have Darrynton Evans in for a workout on Monday.
