Buffalo Bills outside linebacker IK Enemkpali is out for the season with a torn ACL suffered in Week 1 of the preseason, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Media.

Enemkpali had to be carted off the field last night after sustaining a very painful injury that head coach Rex Ryan described as “major” at halftime. He had been playing well in the game before his leg was awkwardly bent underneath him.

Ryan had also lauded Enemkpali for his work this summer, noting he could be one of the guys to step up and replace Mario Williams.

Buffalo was already frightfully thin at outside linebacker, so the loss

This is bad news for Ryan’s defense, which was supposed to take a big step in the right direction after a disappointing first campaign in Buffalo. Without any edge pressure, which was also a big problem in 2015, Ryan has his work cut out in this department.
