The Buffalo Bills hobbled into Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers, but managed to make it through their victory with no new injuries. Instead, it was the visitors who were decimated with a series of lost players in their secondary.
Strong safety Charles Godfrey sustained the most serious injury when the defensive back collapsed to the ground in the second half after trying to put weight on his leg. He will undergo evaluation in Charlotte, but it's feared Godfrey may have torn his Achilles in the loss to Buffalo. Godfrey is the most experienced member of the Panthers' secondary and while he's not an elite player, he's the best they have.
Quintin Mikell also left Sunday's game with a leg injury, and this time it was the safety's ankle. Mikell was signed late in training camp to solidify the Panthers' secondary and give them another veteran in the backfield. He initially took Godfrey's role at strong safety, but was carted off to the locker room shortly after. There is no official update on his status at this time.
Josh Thomas sustained a concussion early in Sunday's game and was unable to return. The cornerback was named a starter at the beginning of the season and there has been no official update on his status. He will need to undergo the league's concussion protocol before he can return to action.
