Buffalo Bills lose three more starters to injuries against Bengals

New, comments

The Bills have a slew of starters out following their Week 6 loss.

The Buffalo Bills are "snake bit." Those words coming from head coach Rex Ryan following another day when his team lost multiple starters to injury.

The first starter to go down to injury was offensive tackle Seantrel Henderson, who was taken to the locker room for evaluation of a concussion. Cyrus Kouandjio stepped in for the rest of the game. Just before the end of the first half, Sammy Watkins caught a touchdown pass but couldn't get up after the play. He was off his crutches by the end of the game and reports say it is a sprained ankle. The final starter to go down was Kyle Williams, who apparently sprained a ligament in his knee with just a few minutes left in the game. He likely won't be back before the bye.

Marquise Goodwin also left the game with a rib injury, hurting different ribs than the injury that kept him out during the beginning of the season. LeSean McCoy entered the game as probable and showed no ill effects of his lingering hamstring injury.

Here's the full rundown of Bills starters who are going to be on the injury report this week or have already been ruled out:

- QB Tyrod Taylor (knee)

- WR Sammy Watkins (ankle, calf)

- WR Percy Harvin (hip)

- OT Seantrel Henderson (concussion)

- DT Kyle Williams (knee)

- CB Leods McKelvin (ankle)

- FS Aaron Williams (neck)
