Bills' Kouandijo found by deputies in field, given first aid
The Buffalo Bills, in a statement, said that they were monitoring Kouandjio's condition and gathering information about the incident.
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) Bills offensive lineman Cyrus Kouandjio was taken to the hospital for observation after police found him without any trousers on in suburban Buffalo field.
He was discovered by police after climbing an electric fence, and the 6-foot-7, 322-pound Kouandjio - who was not fully clothed - yelled at an Erie County Sheriff's deputy as he tried to detain Kouandjio, "Shoot me!".
Kouandjio's much-publicized teammate and fellow lineman Richie Incognito expressed his concern regarding the incident Thursday.
The team released a statement in response to the peculiar situation. "We don't have all of the details, so we won't have any further comment at this time". His vehicle was found abandoned on the side of the road at route 400 in Elma not far from the scene of an accident.
A vehicle accident had already happened just a bit further up the road, so police were in the area.
Kouandjio started five games last season in place of injured left tackle Cordy Glenn.
Kouandjio has played in the National Football League for the past three years, all with Buffalo, after being drafted out of Alabama in the 2nd round in 2014.
