New York Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall sustained what appeared to be a knee injury in the second quarter of Thursday Night Football against the Buffalo Bills. He went to the locker room for further examination, but almost immediately returned to the game.
Bills cornerback Stephon Gilmore was flagged for a face mask on the tackle that led to Marshall’s injury. There is a reason grabbing the face mask is illegal. These tackles carry a higher risk of injury for players.
The Jets seemed to get off to a slow start, but New York’s methodical approach and consistency won the game for them.
Taylor took an illegal helmet-to-helmet hit, which was hard enough to justify concerns about a concussion.
He objected to being removed from the game and had to be escorted off of the field by head official Ed Hochuli.
After he was evaluated for a concussion on the sideline, Taylor was cleared to return to the game. After the game, Bills head coach Rex Ryan said he “understands” the referee’s decision to remove Taylor from the game, according to ESPN’s Mike Rodak.
