Marquise Goodwin may have broken ribs, per Rex Ryan

Marquise Goodwin can't catch a break: a hard hit in Saturday's preseason game has likely left him with broken ribs.

Marquise Goodwin can't catch a break.

Constantly dinged up throughout his career, the Buffalo Bills receiver nearly made it through the whole preseason fully intact. Then a Steelers lineman fell onto him after Goodwin came down with a reception, and Goodwin was back on the ground, being tended to by trainers and stretching his muscles.

It's another setback for Goodwin, who was running better routes this preseason and had collected eight receptions for 101 yards in three preseason games. The rib injury will likely nag at Goodwin throughout the 2015 season; a rib injury suffered by Sammy Watkins on August 16th, 2014 caused him to miss one game, and he aggravated the injury playing two weeks later in the preseason finale. The injury made it difficult for Watkins to run through contact and play at top speed during the early part of the 2014 season.
