The Bisons got some bad news on Thursday concerning the condition Daniel Murphy. The infielder will miss the next four to six months with a high grade MCL tear of the right knee.

No surgery will be required, but the timetable means Murphy will miss the rest of the season. Murphy was playing his second game at second base for the Bisons on Wednesday night and was slid into hard by Chiefs' Leonard Davis. Murphy had to be helped off the field by his teammates.

Murphy had played eight games with Buffalo since joining the club on May 24. He hit .294 (10-34) with one home run and eight RBI.
