As the Buffalo Bills were trying to regain the lead over the Kansas City Chiefs midway through the second quarter, offensive tackle Spencer Brown suffered an ankle injury.
While quarterbak Josh Allen and wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie missed a connection on a 4th & Goal, Brown ended up on the end of a pile while trying to protect his quarterback.
Orginally, a cart was called for Brown, but he ultimately walked into the locker room.
While awaiting further evaluation, the Bills listed the second-year tackle as questionable to return.

As the Bills forced the Chiefs to punt on a three-and-out after Buffalo turned the ball over on downs at the Kansas City three-yard line, Brown was replaced by offensive lineman David Quessenberry, who has seen plenty of action this season making appearances in each of Buffalo’s first five games.
As the teams came out of the locker room to start the second half with the game all tied up, the Buffalo Bills announced that Brown was downgraded to OUT for the remainder of the game.
After the game, Brown was seen in a walking boot with what is being called a “bad sprain.” As for the cart being offered as a way to exit the game, Brown wasn’t having any part of it, saying there was “no way I was getting on a cart.”

Buffalo has had a number of players work through ankle injuries this year including wide receiver Jake Kumerow, who missed tonight’s game, and Ed Oliver who missed three weeks with an ankle injury.
Time will tell how soon Brown can return to the lineup, but right now, time is something that the Bills have. As they head into their bye week, Brown will get an extra week of rest before determining if he will be active in week eight when the Bills host the Green Bay Packers on Sunday night.
