The Buffalo Bills will already be without defensive tackle Kyle Williams for the remainder of the season, but it sounds like they'll have to play their final five games without another defensive lineman.
Defensive end Alex Carrington was carted off the field on Sunday with a leg injury and did not return. On Monday, he's expected to undergo season-ending surgery on a torn quad tendon, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.
