Buffalo Bills Put Kawika Mitchell on Injured Reserve and Sign Former Dolphins’ Akin Ayodele

During Wednesday’s practice for the Buffalo Bills, veteran LB Kawika Mitchell sustained an injury to his foot.  While he is not the greatest linebacker on the team or in the NFL, he is going to be missed by the Bills since he has now been placed on injured reserve, which will end his NFL season this year.

The 30-year-old was limited to only five games last season due to an injury to his quadricep so this second straight missed season is a huge blow to his ego.  He missed the last 11 games of last season due to a knee injury and was a backup to Andra Davis.  As of right now, the Bills are uncertain whether or not Mitchell will need to undergo surgery.

Mitchell was drafted in 2003 in the second round of the draft by Kansas City who he played for through the 2006 season.  In 2007, he joined the New York Giants for a season and then went on to the Buffalo Bills.

To replace Mitchell due to his injury, the Bills have signed veteran LB Akin Ayodele.  Since being drafted by Jacksonville in the third round of the draft in2002, Ayodele has appeared and participated in every single regular season game, which looks really good on him as football player.

He ranked third on the Miami Dolphins last season with 70 tackles and started 15 games last season.  He has played with Miami, Dallas, as well as Jacksonville during his eight-season career in the NFL.  He can now add Buffalo to that list entering into his ninth NFL season.  In his eight seasons with the above mentioned three NFL teams, the linebacker has started 104 of the 128 games and recorded 630 tackles, 9 ½ sacks, 10 forced fumbles as well as 9 fumble recoveries.
