Orchard Park, NY ( - The Buffalo Bills have placed linebacker Kiko Alonso on the reserve/non-football injury list.

Alonso underwent surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament, which he suffered earlier this offseason while working out in Oregon. The move was just a formality, as he is expected to miss the entire season.

The 24-year-old former Oregon Duck led the team in tackles last season as a rookie. He started all 16 games after being drafted in the second round out of Oregon and finished with 159 tackles, two sacks and four interceptions.

The Bills also signed quarterback Jordan Palmer and released quarterback Thad Lewis.
