Draft Scout Kiko Alonso News
03/12/15 - LB Kiko Alonso was traded by the Bills to the Eagles Tuesday (March 10) for running back LeSean McCoy.
Originally a second-round selection (46th overall) of the Bills in the 2013 NFL Draft, Alonso (6-3, 238) burst onto the scene in his rookie season, starting all 16 games and collaring 159 tackles, two sacks and four interceptions en route to Pro Football Writers Association Defensive Rookie of the Year honors. His 159 tackles ranked third in the NFL and was also the third-highest total by an NFL rookie since 2000.
Alonso, 24, missed the duration of the 2014 season after suffering a torn ACL prior to the start of training camp. He starred collegiately at the University of Oregon under Eagles Head Coach Chip Kelly, notching 143 tackles, 21 tackles for a loss, six interceptions and 3.5 sacks during his career with the Ducks.
08/27/14 - LB Kiko Alonso (torn ACL) was placed on reserve/non-football injury by the Bills Tuesday (Aug. 26).
07/20/14 - LB Kiko Alonso underwent surgery Thursday on a torn ACL in his left knee that is expected to sideline him for the 2014 season.
Alonso was injured during a workout in Oregon. The NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year runner-up was recovering from offseason surgery on his hip before he hurt the knee.
"From all the reports we're getting, it was a successful surgery," Bills general manger Doug Whaley said. "We're expecting him to be back after camp, let his swelling go down and do some rehab there. But he'll be back in Buffalo when we break camp."
The loss of Alonso, the team leader in tackles as a rookie with 159 last season, shook up the Bills' plans at linebacker for 2014.
"It's a tremendous loss, but no one is crying for us," Whaley said. "So we have to like you said, 'next man up.' We think we've built a roster that can sustain a loss like this. Our expectations aren't going to drop."

12/18/13 - LB Kiko Alonso shook off a sore knee last week and once again played every snap on defense. He has played all 969 snaps this year, tied for fourth in the NFL.
