Bills Injury Update: Nothing Appears Significant

The bad news following Saturday night’s loss to the Denver Broncos in the Bills’ second preseason game was that four players suffered injuries during the game.  The good news, however, is that none of the injuries appears to be anything significant and all four players should be ready to go for the opener.

Let’s begin with the two most vicious of the injuries.  Donald Jones had his bell rung pretty good thanks to a crunching, yet questionable hit by Broncos safety Rahim Moore.  Jones was down on the field laying motionless for a period of time, but he was able to slowly gather himself and make it to the bench.  It’s likely he’ll miss some time, both in practice and games.  We can probably expect Jones will be ruled out for this Saturday night’s home preseason opener against Jacksonville and he could sit out the preseason finale Sept. 1 against Detroit as a precaution. 

Johnny White suffered a scare as well.  The rookie running back was slammed into the turf at the start of the third quarter and was motionless for several minutes before being carted off the field and taken to a local hospital for further evaluation for precautionary purposes.  White joined the Bills for the return flight home.

Arthur Moats was also taken off the field on a cart after suffering a leg injury and Naaman Roosevelt sustained an ankle injury late in the game but made his way to the Bills sideline on his own power.  Both injuries to Moats and Roosevelt do not appear to be serious.  We will keep an eye on all four players, as well as updates on other injured Bills (Roscoe Parrish, Buster Davis) this week.
