Charles Clay injury: Buffalo Bills tight end leaves shoulder injury

The tight end went down hard in the second quarter.

As if the Buffalo Bills’ list of injured players wasn't already long enough, one more skill player exited early on their last offensive drive.

Tight end Charles Clay went down with an injury to his right shoulder while attempting to make a catch. Clay was covered going up the sideline, and Tyrod Taylor put the ball in a spot where only his receiver could catch it. Unfortunately, the ball slipped through Clay’s arms, and all of his body weight transferred to his shoulder. He did not go to the locker room right away, but he eventually went to the locker room before halftime.

Losing Clay would lessen a unit already severely depleted by injury. LeSean McCoy is out with a hamstring injury, Sammy Watkins has been out since week two with a foot injury, and Marquise Goodwin is out with a concussion. Robert Woods is playing at less than one hundred percent.

With any luck, Clay is only dinged up, since he is arguably Tyrod Taylor’s best remaining weapon. Jerome Felton is the team’s leading receiver at this point.

Update: Clay is back in the game.
