Police discover Bills lineman Kouandjio wandering in field

Buffalo Bills offensive lineman Cyrus Kouandjio was involved in a unusual incident Thursday.

Kouandjio, who was Buffalo's second-round pick in 2014 and has started seven games over the past three seasons, missed Thursday's minicamp session due to the incident. The team released a statement saying they're awaiting more details.

The Buffalo News reported Kouandjio was approached by an Erie County sheriff's deputy in a field off Route 400 in Elma, New York.

"We are aware of the matter involving Cyrus and are carefully monitoring his condition and gathering more information", the statement noted. In his report, Carucci's source claims the Bills lineman told officers to "shoot him". Kouandjio had abandoned his vehicle near the scene of a crash on a Buffalo-area highway. According to the News, police suspect that when Kouandjio saw flashing lights from police and emergency vehicles responding to a separate incident, he pulled off on the side of the road and took off into the field.

A auto accident had already happened just a bit further up the road, so police were in the area. When authorities spoke with Kouandjio, they say he was compliant, courteous and respectful the entire time.
