Buffalo Bills receiver Zay Jones back after leaving game with knee injury

This was a brutal-looking injury.

Zay Jones left the game for the Buffalo Bills late in the second quarter. After breaking past his defender, New York Jets cornerback Buster Skrine reached back and interfered with Jones as he was running. Jones stumbled and planted his right knee to keep his balance and it buckled. It did not look good.

Jones scored his first NFL touchdown earlier in the game and developed a nice rapport with quarterback Tyrod Taylor.

To make matters worse, Buffalo made Brandon Tate and newly-acquired receiver Kelvin Benjamin inactive tonight. Only Jordan Matthews, Andre Holmes, and Deonte Thompson remain in the game as well as WR/QB/STer Joe Webb. Tight end Charles Clay is also out of the game.

As the team left the field before the half, head coach Sean McDermott said Jones would be evaluated in the locker room before his status for the rest of the game was determined. Jones never left the field and the trainers gave him back his helmet. He missed one series but was back on the field after halftime.
