Buffalo Bills starting center Russell Bodine injured in first quarter

The Bills won the battle, but Bodine may have lost the war.

Buffalo Bills starting center Russell Bodine has headed to the locker room with a leg injury. He is out for the rest of the game. He has been replaced by Ryan Groy.

Bodine was injured on a 3rd and 1 when Josh Allen was able to get the yard on a QB sneak. Bodine immediately went to one knee after the snap and it appeared that at least one of the big bodies landed on the back of his leg. He was in immediate pain and eventually limped off and into the locker room.

Groy was the team’s starter for the first two weeks of the season but was benched in favor of Bodine after being ineffective. He has snapped to Allen during games after the rookie quarterback entered the game in Week 1 and started Week 2.

The Bills’ interior offensive line has been completely turned over in the last few weeks. Rookie Wyatt Teller replaced Vlad Ducasse at left guard two games ago, Jeremiah Sirles is in at right guard while Jonathan Miller recovers from an oblique injury, and now Groy replaces Bodine.
