In Sunday’s loss at Carolina, three injuries for the Buffalo Bills occurred. Cordy Glenn is still having problems with his ankle/foot injury from the offseason but has been trying to tough it out. Marcell Dareus was added to the list for an ankle injury and Shaq Lawson has been added for a nerve contusion.

Glenn has been dealing with this injury for months now and Sean McDermott still hasn't ruled out the possibility of Glenn needing to get it surgically repaired. If Glenn were to miss time the Bills would have to turn to rookie second-round pick Dion Dawkins who has been rotating in at left tackle to give Glenn breaks during the last 2 games. Dawkins played okay while taking every snap in the second half Sunday. Seantrel Henderson is still suspended for three more games. If Glenn does need surgery, there is a chance they are waiting for Henderson to come back.

Marcell Dareus has an ankle injury but we do not know the extent. This is a new injury for Dareus that took place on the first play of the game but he came back and finished after getting his ankle re-tapped in the first half. Dareus has been limited in his reps so far this season. On Sunday, Dareus was only on the field for 17 defensive snaps which comes out to only 25% of the defense’s total. Eddie Yarbrough, Ryan Davis and Cedric Thompson all had more snaps than Dareus.

Shaq Lawson suffered a nerve contusion and that is all we know at the moment. Sean McDermott said Lawson is still under evaluation. Lawson was on the field for 42 defensive snaps and played the entire of the game. He was responsible for one of the 6 sacks the Bills defense recorded.
