Bills WR David Nelson has suffered a torn ACL, and is done for the season.

It's devastating news for a Bills' passing attack that had an awful afternoon in Sunday's blowout loss to the Jets. Buffalo will now likely turn to Donald Jones in the slot, and line up third-round rookie T.J. Graham on the outside opposite Stevie Johnson. The Bills will be in even bigger trouble if Johnson's groin woes linger like they did in 2011. The news obviously clouds Nelson's future after he posted a 61/658/5 line in his second season as an undrafted free agent out of Florida in 2011, but he won't turn 26 until November. He should bounce back. Suffering his injury in Week 1 also puts Nelson in position to be ready for camp next summer.
