Buffalo Bills center Mitch Morse has left the game against the Denver Broncos after injuring his hand late in the first quarter. John Wawrow from The Associated Press first reported that members of the team’s training staff were looking at his hand, with CBS saying it was his thumb. As he needs to grip the ball on every play, that can be problematic.
Morse returned for one play to start the second quarter but left after just that single play. Right guard Jon Feliciano shifted over to center and Spencer Long came in at guard. Morse is continuing to snap the ball to backup QB Matt Barkley on the sideline, but is questionable to return.
Buffalo is already down to their backup right tackle in Cody Ford, as Ty Nsekhe is out with an ankle injury. Ryan Bates is the only other offensive lineman up for the game, and he has preseason experience along the entire o-line. Ike Boettger is inactive.
