The Buffalo Bills trailed the Miami Dolphins 14-7 at halftime on Sunday night, and when they came out of the locker room to start the third quarter, wide receiver Gabe Davis was in street clothes, and running back Ty Johnson stayed behind.

Davis suffered a knee injury as the first quarter expired and was seen on the sideline with trainers taking a close look at his knee. After a turn in the medical tent and an early departure to the locker room, Buffalo announced that Davis was questionable to return. However, when the Bills came out of the locker room after halftime, Davis was in sweats and it wasn’t long before the official word was posted: Davis had been downgraded to out.

But Davis wasn’t the only offensive weapon that the Bills lost in the first half of the game at Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium. As the second-quarter clock ticked down to zero, running back Ty Johnson had taken a Josh Allen pass just shy of the goal line. As he turned to try to get in for what would have been the tying score, he took a hit to the helmet. Ultimately the 26-year-old Johnson was ruled out with a concussion.

As the fourth quarter started, the Bills also announced that linebacker Tyrel Dodson, who was injured back in the second quarter was also being ruled out with a shoulder injury.
