For the second week in a row, the Buffalo Bills defense looks like they are going to be without a key starter for the reaminder of the year. Last week, cornerback Tre'Davious White suffered a season-ending Achilles injury.

This week against the Jacksonville Jaguars, it looks like Matt Milano is now dealing with a serious leg injury. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the fear is that Milano suffered a fractured leg with concern about his ACL. The extent of the injury to his knee won't be clear until an MRI is completed.

Regardless, it looks like Milano will now miss the remainder of the season. This is a huge loss for a Bills' defense because Milano is one of the best linebackers in the NFL. He was selected to the first-team All-Pro and once again was playing great football with 30 total tackles, two interceptions, and one forced fumble.

The question for the team now is how they try to replace such a pivotal piece of their defense. The Bills will look internally with Tyrel Dodson and Dorian Williams as potential options along with A.J. Klein on the practice squad.

However, if the Bills are to explore the free agent market these are five players that could be options.
