The Buffalo Bills were already thin at wide receiver and following a late injury to Marquse Goodwin, they are even thinner at wideout with no real relief on the horizon.
With under four minutes remaining against the Miami Dolphins, Tyrod Taylor looked to Goodwin on 3rd and 10 with the Bills down four points but the pass was high. Goodwin went up to get it but when he landed, his head snapped up off the turf and the receiver was motionless on the ground. After trainers began attending to him, his legs began to move.
The wide receiver has developed a reputation for injuries, including a concussion earlier this season, but this shouldn’t be attributed to any lack of toughness on his part. His head hit the turf very hard.
Buffalo is already without Sammy Watkins, who is on injured reserve with a lingering foot injury but could come back late in November. Robert Woods was in a walking boot all week, listed as doubtful, and didn’t play. By the end of the game, they had just Justin Hunter, Brandon Tate, and Walt Powell.
