The Bills will be without 34-year old kicker Rian Lindell for the next 4-6 weeks due to a very serious shoulder injury.  Lindell has kicked in all 8 games for the Bills so far this year and he has made 12 of 15 field goals (80%).  He also has connected on all 25 of his extra points this year as he has scored 64 points for the Bills so far in 2011.  The Bills will likely have a dropoff at kicker after they sign a free agent to replace Lindell, who is a great cold weather kicker.
