The last thing the Buffalo Bills were hoping to deal with following their third preseason game was another injury, but they didn't come out unscathed.
Top cornerback Stephon Gilmore was injured tackling wide receiver Markus Wheaton in the first quarter; he left the field with trainers following the hit, then was taken to the locker room to be examined for a possible concussion. While he didn't test positive for a concussion, Gilmore was eventually diagnosed with a shoulder injury, and he won't play for the rest of the contest.
The Bills can't afford to lose Gilmore for any length of time, with Leodis McKelvin rehabbing an ankle injury and Ronald Darby building a collection of yellow handkerchiefs on the field. Hopefully the injury is of the minor nature.
Stephon Gilmore is back on the sideline in street clothes. Left with a shoulder injury. He's not in a sling, which is a good sign.— Tyler Dunne (@TyDunne) August 29, 2015
