The Buffalo Bills have another hole to fill. This time they are losing their corner Stephon Gilmore for 8 weeks or so with a hand injury.
Bills CB Stephon Gilmore to miss about eight weeks with a hand/wrist issue. Tough one there but hope is he only misses 5-6 games or so.

Gilmore is the team’s top corner and started 16 games last season. He totaled 61 tackles and an interception.
The next men up on the depth chart would be T.J. Heath, Justin Rogers. They won’t be able to fill the shoes for Gilmore, but hopefully they will be able to hold the fort down for a little bit. .
Gilmore has been having a strong preseason and this is a devastating loss. The team has been dealing with all kinds of injuries this offseason. E.J. Manual has been out for the preseason after getting his knee drained and Kevin Kolb has a career threatening concussion to deal with.
Sounds like it might be another tough year in Buffalo.
